Great menu with heaps of choices. The food was delicious, servings are generous and pricing very reasonable. Our kids loved the milkshakes, and colouring supplies kept them occupied so we could eat in peace! Could not fault this place. Best coffee I had in Cavan too! Service is excellent- will definitely be back next time we're in Cavan

We have been here many times and will continue to frequent its retro and welcoming atmosphere. Always quickly attended to. Large choice of dishes, all tasty with good portions, hot and delivered very speedily to your table. Enough space for a family, good wi -fi , attractive decor, always feels clean and tidy. Staff happy and pleasant, prices competitive .... More

The only truthful part of this review is the food is lovely. In regards to the waitress being rude i would be fairly confident that this was nothing more than a bit of banter and was just someone having a joke with you, our portions are v big and i'm sure that is all that was meant by this, the...

Been there a few times and the service is absolutely terrible!! Staff stood around talking for about 15 minutes before taking our order.. Always get out orders wrong every time. I wouldn't mind if the place was busy but there is only a few customers and plenty of staff..Food is good but the service brings it down.

We ( family of 5) ate dinner here. I had the battered cod and chips with mushy peas. The fish was undoubtedly frozen ( not fresh) as it was very bland. The worst thing was that it was very much overdone, making it tough and rubbery. Chips were ok. In fairness, one of the kids had southern fried chicken which... More

I am sorry that your experience with us was less than satisfactory as you can see from our reviews this is far from the norm and i do hope that you will try us again and give us a chance to prove this. I am assuming this was a takeaway as we would have corrected it on the spot if... More
