“Great new owners and it shows”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

This used to be a great pub but went downhill for a while, not sure why. However we heard that it had changed management so went along for lunch today. It was really great, the owners were incredibly helpful, they showed me the new menu that they will be integrating before fully introducing for November. The owner has worked at The Waterside in Bray and with Gordon Ramsay. I had chilli prawns for a starter and OH had a portobello mushroom filled with bacon and cheese. Both were excellent. We both ordered steak as a main course, the meat was absolutely fabulous, you could taste the quality, and it came with crispy chunky chips and delicious really crunchy onion rings in the lightest and crispest of batter. Also have wifi which we are now considering an essential. Definitely going back!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

We had a very pleasant lunch here on a Thursday. The service was attentive, the daily special baguettes were very good and the chips with ham egg and chips were crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. There were only five couples in the pub which limited the chance of any atmosphere but certainly worth a visit for a good value lunch.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

Have eaten here many times and really love the food. They do a wonderful deli board starter that enables you to pick as few or as many items as you want to make a mezze of your own choosing. Good beer, friendly staff and nice surroundings. Definitely a winner
