We went there based on previous reviews. The food was bland at best, service was very slow even though it was quiet. had to ask for water three times. Pasta carbonara was just pasta with cream, no attempt at any kind of flavour. Horrid.

10 minute walk away from the Airport Manor B&B. Situated at the back of the Shannon Knights pub (which wasn't my cup of tea). However restaurant totally separate. Really good food and friendly service at a reasonable price.

We visited on the day of an airshow, and all the staff were dressed up as pilots, air hostesses etc., making it a fun visit. Food was good, quite quick, and reasonably priced.
