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 .

I had a flavorless steak. Pepper sauce was pretty much water and made the steak even worse. Dessert was tasteless fluff. Staff didn’t seem to care too much. Maybe the proper chef had a night off. Thankfully the wine was nice.
