Not much to say. Tables sticky. Cutlery dirty. Napkins wet. Food deplorable. Fish goujons had turned, ate two before I realised. 4am the vomiting started. Avoid.

We stopped here for a quick lunch on our tour of the region. What an excellent choice. We were welcomed warmly and the food was very, very good. The fish & chips were the best!

We enjoyed excellent fish and chips here. The fish was crispy and the chips were hot and fluffy on the inside. I highly recommend stopping on your way through Clifden.

We couldn't go past the famous dessert platter here. It blew my mind. Make sure you leave room after the great array of seafood on offer!

Super dinner of Hake smothered in cream/mussel sauce and fish/chips. Friendly pub atmosphere with fantastic Irish ballad music by guitarist/singer and banjo picker.

Excellent buzz with really friendly locals who welcomed us in. Sean was a great raconteur and hugely witty. Plus a fabulous pint of guiness!

We stopped at Vaughan's on our way back from Kylemore Abbey. We had the fish and chips, and it was fine, but nothing special. There were fruit flies bothering us during the meal. The service was mediocre.
