This pub/restaurant has great eye appeal and served us a very tasty lunch of fish chowder and a blue cheese/pear/walnut salad. Service was very friendly and efficient.

Myself and 5 other ladies dined in this restaurant early May '14. I phoned to make a reservation and from those conversations (it took 2 calls as trying to co-ordinate the diaries of 6 women is a task in itself!!) the tone for the establishment was set. The guys at the end of the phone were extremely mannerly and friendly in their dealings with me and the banter was good craic. The evening itself was just lovely. We sat at a round table - which in itself is such a bonus as it facilitates conversation during the meal and is so hard to find in a restaurant. The food was delicious and so very fresh. The flavours were delicious. The attention to detail for each course was fantastic. The servers were also very pleasant and accommodating - we had to be out on time for a trip to the theatre (2 treats in one - we spoiled ourselves that evening ;-) ) and the servers ensured a speedy service. This did not distract, however, from our wonderful meal. All in all, well worth a visit and I am hoping to find an excuse to get there again ;-)

Happened across this pub/ restaurant when looking for somewhere to watch a match and eat with a reasonable price in Galway.
Typical selection of pub grub meals but with a twist, for example, pork belly with a mustard and apple gravy, its the "twists" that made the difference. Restaurant quality presentation and very quick service. Dessert was also lovely.
The pub itself was immaculately clean and the decor felt very comforting.
I would eat here again.
