Ate here while we were staying in Glengarriff, place was very quiet but the owner showed us to a seat down the back near the stove. There was another couple eating close by but apart from the the place was empty. Place wasn't the tidiest - an old order slip, some pens and till roll were beside us on the... More

Went on 12th September as a group from different European countries. We all agreed the food was awful. even the people who actually got what they ordered! Service was okay but the food caused a few upset stomachs within our party. Would not recommend under any circumstances.

Visited here September without checking reviews.... My first impression was not good, lots of flies and no light in the toliets. Rather than leave there and then, we stupidly remained and ordered two sandwiches and tea. The order was taken by a man wearing a filthy shirt who then stood staring at us for several minutes which was really uncomfortable... More

What chef would produce burnt food have they no pride in what they serve up. Ruined the whole meal. But should have... More

Decided to stop for a evening meal. Not sure of the ambiance, dark and dull. Pianist playing classical music but not anything recognisable. Steaks arrive look like Dobbin. Not sure.

We had a pint here and looked at the menu, food looked alrite from what we saw of people eating outside, and the pint was fine but we chose not eat here as the woman of the house was just rude. My husband asked her a simple question about the type of cider we might have and she barely deigned... More

My boyfriend and I, unlike many other reviewers unfortunately did not look up the reviews before going here. After sitting down and ordering our food I noticed flies everywhere not a great start then our food arrived I got a vegetarian curry and my boyfriend got a burger. If I had to describe the food in one word it would... More
