I had a gorgeous roast chicken dinner - it was beautiful! The chicken was so soft and delicious. It was a beautiful pub, very into... More

This is a nice pub, nice environment. Its a busy little place and they sure give value for money. The staff are very friendly. There is almost too much food presented, I ordered the homemade burger. I recieved two homemade burgers both on a soft bap with bacon n melted cheese. It was huge I could hardly touch the chips.... More

I had tea here the other night. I had the home roast lamb. It came out cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a night out.

Had a beautiful meal. We were unsure if we wanted a starter or not so we went for fillet steaks all I can say is they were superb and thank god we never ordered starters. If I was to be picky we had to share a table but the food made up for it.

We went here twice when we stayed in Bantry, and loved the place. Great food, very fresh fish and mussels, we really enjoyed it. Normally we go to another place when we stay for two days, but we like The Snug so much, we happily made a exception on that"rule".

We all had something different. The food was just marvellous and the service first class - unpretentious, attentive, generous and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
