“Great food warm welcome nice fire”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Called in for a drink one very cold day in Donegal had a guiness beside the lovely coal fire after a look at the menu decided lunch would be a good idea.
Do try the seafood chowder - so good we also had the local smoked salmon and crab very delicious all washed down with a nice glass of white wine. Also do try their excellent Irish coffee.
