Having seen the reviews we were expecting something very nice however for lunch it was just a self service operation with the usual overcooked food - beef, chicken, fish, lasagne - that is available in so many places. Friendly service, busy (some loud annoying teenagers...More

Allergen informing is listed on all the items. I had a tasty veggie curry which doesn't have dairy by default. You can also drink a lot of Guinness :) There was also a stir fry noodle dish that should be vegan

The Broken Jug is an award winning pub serving food from 12noon – 9pm daily. Our first class service and friendless is one of the main talking points from visitors and regulars alike. We take pride in offering wholesome, fresh and locally produced food that showcases the very best on offer in the locality but also gives us the edge on taste in our extensive evening food menu. We serve a wide range of local craft beers, high end gins and spirits e.g. the local Connacht Distillery products of gin and vodka are sold here as well as used in Cocktails. Once the kitchen closes, there’s a shift to entertainment. Each night of the week offers something different, anything from traditional Irish music during the week to live bands with late bar with DJ at the weekend. With impressive big screens and HD T.V’s the Broken Jug is the sports bar of the town, a favourite for football fans who want to see the game with the option of food and a pint!
