I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more. Delicious food- the pasta in particular- so fresh, fantastic staff and a great atmosphere. We were a large group and so well looked after. Will definitely be returning.

Lovely food, great staff and a lovely atmosphere. The food is tasty and good value. The butcher shop has the best fresh meat in Mayo.

Visited in August 2017 based on previous TripAdvisor recommendations. Despite the restaurant name, this is essentially an Italian oriented restaurant which is moderate in size but beautifully furnished. The service and food was first class and we would not hesitate to visit again.

Our group of four were all delighted with the wonderful Italian fare at Heifer and Hen. Pasta to die for. Lovely setting.
