My land one of the best chowders I’ve tasted in a very long time. This is a consensus from four of us. Keep it up. I’ll drive the 300+ miles one way to savor this treat again.

We came here after a long day trip and thoroughly enjoyed the King Burger with cheese and bacon and their red ale. Fish and chips also great! Good value for money - typical prices for Ireland. My husband said: one of the best burgers ever.

Visit 1 - asked for a bottle of champagne. No explanation of the rules just a "no alcohol without food"Went further along to Lamplight Bar, where the rules were explained and we had our bottle of fizz with some breads and dips (cost 11 euro)...Visit 2 Asked for a coffee and to sit outside."sorry only inside today" Visit 3 people at tables outside, sat down and waitress took our order of 2 coffees. Came back - sorry inside unless you are having food. £ strikes and out. Had noticed the food during the week and no wonder they have to force it on you. Rank bad service and attitude.More

We came here for lunch food was ok but it wasn't an enjoyable experience at all! Only one member of staff wearing a mask and no tracking info was taken from us! People were getting drinks from the bar and drinking without buying meals! The...toilets are filthy too! Let's just say I will not be back!More

Came for a quick lunch. Our waiter was very impersonal, yet very talkative with the table next to us. Food was fine; toasties and chips. A really annoying local was in the bar the whole time, basically shouting to the staff who all knew him...well. He was the reason we finished up and left right away. He arrived at the same time as us, had a couple of pints, and definitely didn’t order any food.More

Stopped for a late lunch while staying in Clifden. Had chicken wings which were lovely but very spicy! We also had seafood chowder which was fabulous, very creamy.
