Wish there were more people at our table for me to try the dishes because everything the two of us had was great. Standout was tempura prawns. Hmmm, good. Good, friendly service. Recommended.

Perfect country pub with lovely food, definitely get the mussels! Couldn't be in a better spot especially if you are on the way to Inishbofin Island.

Family friendly, engaging staff, lively spot for early family bite, pints, take away pizza or a sit in meal - a must for anyone passing through Clifden.

We had the seafood platter and the ribs. Both were good..it was more than enough food. As starter we had one garlicbread, the waitress came with two platters so we could share the starter. Services is also good..quick and very polite. Ambience is great! Would definitly go here again.
