“Disappointing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Called into Bar One for evening meal after long drive from Dublin and was looking forward to a nice bit of grub. Ate many times in the establishment in the past however it had been a few years since the last meal. Food in the past was very enjoyable but on this occasion it was very disappointing. I ordered cod and chips, my partner chicken and bacon wrap and kid’s goujons and chips. The batter for the cod was golden but greasy, the cod itself had no taste and was like rubber, chips were only ok. Although it was Saint Patrick’s Day it was not too busy so I took that into consideration when reviewing, however that aside, we ate pretty much the same dish in Dublin the day before in an extremely busy Dublin City pub during the Irish v Italy rugby match and I could not complain about the food. Expected more from this place hence the disappointment.

“Great curries!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Stopped off on the way to Westport for lunch here having checked the reviews on trip advisor. Had a fabulous lunch, we both had curries one Indian chicken and the other Malaysian beef. Both were wonderful and we couldn't resist the chunky chips!

“Best lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Best lunch in Castlebar, beautiful soup, home made and bread from cherry blossom bakery. Ceasar Salad was wonderful, perfectly flavoured and just the right amount. Staff were helpful and attentive and place was spotless. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic......!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This place is fantastic.......! The atmosphere was great, the food and Guinness superb and the service totally surpassed all expectations! I think the guy who runs it/owns it/manages it is who we were greeted and served by and he is the loveliest friendliest guy you could ever hope to meet (and by Irish standards that is a REAL compliment)
I returned a few days later with a girlfriend and we weren't very hungry so just opted for a jacket potato and salad, not a problem at all, huge tasty salad and my friend's Coeliac concerns were addressed and facillitated with no drama! Can't recommend this highly enough!
