Charming, small restaurant and attached pub close to the Shannon River in Athlone, Ireland. Very good value fixed price menu (2 or 3 courses). Small wine list that was put together with some care. Inventive mains, fresh ingredients and absolutely splendid desserts.

The décor in this restaurant was beautiful with the white painted brick, wood trim, and large bookshelf with a library ladder.

Nice food, friendly staff, quick service, decent price. Good vegetarian options. Accoustics in the room were a bit weird, making conversation a little difficult - minor quibble.
