History of Cronin’s RestaurantIn 1957 Johnny and Noreen Cronin opened a small lodging house down Clover Lane. Noreen who worked as a cook for a brief period in London decided to use her talents in the kitchen serving lunches for local factory worker. At the time it was quite a small operation with Noreen and Johnny doing the cooking the serving and the wash up . As time went by the Cronin family Grew and Sisters Joan, Katherine, Helen, Norma along with their brother Pat all began to work in the lodging house. In 1977 after realising the popularity of there lunches Johnny and Noreen took the decision to buy a small thatched cottage on College street and turn it into Cronins Restaurant. In 1996

My husband and I had dinner at their restaurant tonight. We had the smoke salmon and prawns salad. The salmon was delicious, fresh, and elegantly presented. The prawns were smaller than what we would expect in California but the taste was just as fantastic.

Goat's cheese appetizer is superb. Hope they had ribeye instead of sirloin though. But steak wise it's good.

Great restaurant. We were even more impressed by the ready helpfulness of our server, who provided suggestions for parking, things to do, and local tips unprompted. Good food and atmosphere as well.

Hi Jamie, My best advice would be to contact Cronin's themselves as they would be the best placed to answer this question especially as it is a serious issue if there was any type of cross contamination. To be fair they are... More
