I ate in this bar with some friends and chose the Fish and Chips. The batter on the fish was crisp and the fish well cooked. The chips were OK. My main concern was the tartar sauce. I have tasted this classic relish in many restaurants around the world but although it has come in many hues of green this... More

Recommended by friends, a group of us stopped in for lunch. It was a bit off-season, so it was quiet. Most of us had the mussels and a glass of Guiness. The fresh local mussels were prepared with a sauce that was out of this world. If you like mussels, this stop is not to be missed!

The waiter took our order, (One burger and chips and one bacon and cabbage and a side of veg)but not the table beside us. After 40 minutes my... More

Great little pub. We shared a starter of mussels that were fresh and basted in a wonderful sauce. Roast duck special was excellent and the Irish Stew was hearty and tasty. Highly recommend and the service was very good.

Any time we are in Sneem we like to pop into this bar for a few drinks. This is a very welcoming bar with the staff and locals always being so friendly. The Guinness is very good and a good spot to watch a match.

Had dinner here one evening with my wife and 2yr old daughters. The menu had something for everyone. Food was delicious and good size portions and the staff were fantastic. We especially want to mention Mike and Mary-they chatted away with us and our kids....kept enquiring about getting us more food for the kids-thank you for a most enjoyable experience.

The meal was only OK and I don't know why but I expected more. We had the fish and chips -why is there an obsession with serving food on wooden boards with a seperate pot of chips? If you're going to serve food on a board please renew the boards regularly as the one I got looked as though it... More
