Perhaps the best location in Clonakilty, in a little square; it offers some outdoor tables also. Very pleasant for a glass of wine or a meal or both.

Description
We are delighted to bring you a taste of West Cork in beautiful Clonakilty. We opened in 2012 and are constantly improving our menus to bring something special to your experience with us. A simple yet locally sourced and affordable menu await even the most discerning palate, and our freshly baked cakes, scones and home-baked goods will tempt anyone. Added to that are local cheese, meats, chutneys, jams and salads. With specials every day on our menu, there is always something to enjoy. Cool and Refreshing Experience something out of the ordinary with our hand-picked collection of craft beers. With a small but varied selection of micro brews, we've done the hard work so you don't have to. While there are a few familiar beers available, why not enjoy a cider from Kinsale, or one of a range of refreshments from the Dungarvan Brewing Company.
