Family visit we all had the burger. Burger with chips 17 euro. ( bit dear) Amazing feed. Kids meal was cheap and includes drink and ice cream which was massive with all the toppings. Handy to Tayto park and homely wee spot. Give it a go.

This is a nice pub with plenty of character but overpriced for the average food. Frozen chips and burgers that have been bought, not prepared. I had the burger with bacon. It was a strip of streaky bacon which was more fat than meat and made the burger a chore to eat, trying as I was, to avoid the stringy... More

Managed to get a table without prior booking and had an excellent meal. Brilliant steak but the "pepper sauce" obviously came out of a packet. Very good wine list at a reasonable price. I guess the breakfast will just as good and will certainly book a room next time I am in the area.

I went to the snail box for a family outing we needed to book it as the restaurant is always really busy but there's a reason for this the food is amazing every dish that my family ordered was spot on no one complained about anything. Some of the food is a bit costly but overall it's worth it
