Visited by myself on a business trip to Bathurst, a cosy pub with a restaurant at the back. I had the rib-eye on the bone and it was excellent meat and very tasty, although a tad overdone - compared to my order of medium rare. Salad, sauce and chips were great. Other diners appeared to be enjoying their meals. Service... More

As you would expect for an Irish pub the food was wholesome and servings large. Reasonable value and they handled big tables easily. Beer was of course good

We have now been to Bathurst twice and both times we have gone to Jack Duggans for our evening Meal and drinks. We didn't even realize that they offer accommodation as well, otherwise we would have stayed here. They offer big hearty meals and a good pint of Guinness that is reasonably priced, not like other pubs, that charge the... More

This Irish pub in the centre of Bathurst offers big, hearty, tasty meals in a quaint environment with a large outdoor area. The Steak & Guinness pie was big and wonderful with lean quality steak filling the pie, married to a beautiful flaky pastry and great gravy. The Irish sausages were piled high and the peanut butter ice cream pie... More

Only in Bathurst for one night so decided to go with other Trip Advisor recommendations and try Jack Duggans. Noice! Booked for an early dinner (6pm) and lucky we did. Place was standing room only by 7.30. We could see why.....relaxed comfortable space with many bits of bric-a-brac around to make it interesting. Hubby went with the Irish stew and... More

A querky pub that is very charming in the style it is decorated in. Don't be fooled thinking that there may not be an available table as it has more dining area put the back. Meals are quite big & filling so make sure you're hungry. Meal area takes cash only but you can run a tab at the bar.... More

Great Irish pub......for an Aussie version. But the restaurant is a cut way above anything we expected. Very generous serves and 1St class quality. In fact, amazing quality. We stayed for quite a while, enjoying a few beers too. My hatoff to the owners, it is literally the best pub, meal I've had and I've had many, in many different... More

Had tea at Duggans Irish Pub. Up to 17 people, adults & kids. A good range of food. Great specials. On ordering, meals were prompt, considering how busy the pub was. Good rather of beers & wines.

Very disappointed, wait staff rude, kitchen staff very unhelpful, meals mediocre at best. Looking forward to a great night out, but came away unsatisfied. Luckily found a great pub with spectacular meal the next day, so faith in the pub meal not completely destroyed

Has a great pub atmosphere. Perfect for all occasions. Would happily bring kids along. Service was great and staff were helpful. Partner had squid. He enjoyed it. I had the lemon butter sole special. Very disappointed. Worst i have had. Lemon butter balance was wrong. Fish was whole which was expected. Didnt expect it to taste like seaweed. Very salty... More
