I ate at the Snug at least three times when I was there last week. I ordered fish every time and I got the catch that day. Served with vegetables including a tasty potato mash, the fish was seasoned to perfection, moist and delicious.

Visited the Snug this weekend. Had a beautiful meal of mussels followed by catch of the day. It was very busy with a waiting list but during my time there was ran very smoothly and food, quality and service was superb as usual.

Five of us had various food here and everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was efficient and friendly. Please oozes character. Prices near enough normal for Bantry. Menu was varied enough for there to be something for everyone.
