“No1 pick in Castlebar!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Having just arrived in Castlebar for the weekend popped into this bar whilst trying to deside where to eat on a Friday eve.....no need to look any further as this place covered all taste buds. Variety on the menu is second to none, for starters we shared chicken wings, portion was a nice and the wings themselves were finger licking good. Mains was chicken hot and spicy and steak (cooked perfectly) again portion size was plentyful and very tastey. Unfortunely neither of us could face desert on this day hence going back on Sunday before hitting the road for home....again not dissapointed two roast dinners and cheesecake to end a perfect weekend. Staff and atmosphere friendly also....will definitely be back!!!!

“Plastic in my food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

So as the title says I found a piece of plastic in my dinner. Staff were very nice and apologetic. Dinner was free of course. It was all very tasty apart from the plastic and I would go back. Hopefully for a more un eventful dining experience

“Nice food and decent music on weekends”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The atmosphere is good in the bar. The restraint food is nicer than what you’d expect from pub food, for example, the piri piri chicken comes out like a bouquet of pastry.

There is often a DJ on the top floor or live music downstairs on weekends, one of the more entertaining bars in Castlebar. The clientele are of a mixed age so there’s always a good crowd in.
