“Characterful pub in the heart of Ardara”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Loved the decor and atmosphere in this pub, but was slightly disappointed with the food. The food was very average, nothing special and the portions were tiny. Would definitely return here, but just for a drink.

“Could have stayed all day :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Lovely quirky little place! It was a wet cold day on the motorbikes, so stopped in Nancy's for lunch. I had the soup and sandwich and it was perfect! Homely soup, tasted yum, and a proper ham and cheese sandwich! Then a pot of tea for two that lasted over an hour, perfect. The place was lovely and relaxed, reminded me of my grannies sitting room. The staff were friendly but not in your face. I would defo recommend Nancy's and will defo be back.

“Snug in Nancy's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Excellent pub with traditional style snugs allowing patrons to enjoy different experiences within each corner of this pub. You'll find it filled with friendly locals and tourists alike. My personal favourite is the front parlour filled with teapots. The food is pretty good too, made even better washed down with an Irish or Baileys coffee.
