Stayed in room4 over the weekend last. New menu is very appealing to a variety of tastes. I tried the new potted crab starter. As a seafood enthusiast this was right up my street. 5 stars

While staying at the Ice House within sight a short walk away, decided to re-visit Crockets after many years and wasn't disappointed. Although its not cheap, the quality and indeed quantity of food is extremely good. However it remains a bar/restaurant and should not be confused with a high class dining experience. Nothing appeared any trouble to the staff with... More

My new civil partner/husband/whatever(!) had our post wedding evening here on Saturday night. We could not have been better looked after. A fantastic barbecue, including an amazing dressed salmon and desserts to die for, were followed by such a fun evening. Even for a party of up to 100 people, this place coped effortlessly with everyone being able to mingle... More

It was not good and would be better all round if it was excluded from menu. Advised manageress who dealt with my complaint very efficiently and deducted the cost from... More

Crockets on the quay is a must visit for any 'foody', as regulars to Ballina we never miss an opportunity to pop in. Set on the quay or harbour area of the river moy lies this beautiful pub and restaurant. Always a great pint at the bar, nice music and a friendly face. We were seated without a reservation and...

A great place! Great food! the flavours are just divine. A few years back they had a chocolate milkshake dessert that was absolutely delicious and miss it till this day. The staff are wonderful and the whole ambience of the place is great. If you are ever in Ballina that is a place to visit!
