“Excellent, great value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is bar food at its best. Great dishes, even from what seems to be plain (chicken breast with mashed potatoes and brocolli), lovely and their pasta dishes are fab. As for the curry!! relaxed atmosphere even at lunch time when it can be very busy. Very reasonable for lunch and for evening meals. very highly recommended!

“Loved It!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Visited Bar One with some friends before Billy Connolly gig and we were knocked out with the whole experience. The curry far exceeded any curry you would normally be seved in an Irish food venue. The Burgers and Pizzas were great too They do a local cheese called ''Carrowholly'' on the burgers which is wonderful. Great food reasonably priced and the beers are good too. The wine was served by the glass from a normal bottle as opposed to those disgusting quarter bottles that are thrown out to you in most Irish establishments, Cant wait to go back.

“Early evening meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Ate here before performance from Billy Connolly. We were lucky to be seated, next through the door were not so lucky.Food was lovely, husband had the curry which he raved about all evening, I had a pizza , couple with us both had burgers which they declared as yummy as was the coleslaw which came with the burgers.Didn't have dessert but the few that were brought out looked lovely. Reasonable value for all meals.Would definety make a repeat visit if we are in the area again.

“Nice place, not so nice food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

We ordered the garlic cheese bread and garlic mushrooms for starters, both were a little to greasy, the sirlion steak was tasteless and the pepper sauce was watery and lacked flavour while my partners pasta was a little top heavy with spices. The dessert was beautiful.
Service was ok, not overly friendly considering it was very quiet but quick and attentive all the same.
