Description: Oskars is open 7 days a week serving morning coffee and scones for the tired and weary. Our lunch menu is the best of both worlds - Carvery and specials as well as our specially designed A La Carte Menu. The Carvery includes roast of the day, market fresh fish, lasagne, Chicken Pepper sauce, Club Sandwiches, Paninnis, burgers, steaks and a lot more. The Evening menu offers a choice of 10 homemade burgers, steaks & steak sandwiches, bbq ribs, a fresh fish selection including our famous seafood pancake and salmon fishcakes. The Boards in the kitchen will also feature a number of daily specials. Food is something we love, so we want to do it right! SPORTING EVENTS: We love our Sport at Oskars and have dedicated our entire upper floor to it. We believe that if you love sport too, you should experience it like it's supposed to be - in glorious HD on two 12ft Screens, with stunning surround sound. However, if sport is not your bag, we also believe that it shouldn't be rammed down your throat. This is why downstairs you can enjoy a drink or some food, without having to listen to the many excitable commentaries. The best of both worlds - we hope!

Friendly staff, great beer selection, ok atmosphere, but the food while good value is pretty poor in quality.

Which is a shame given everything else is fine.

The bar is lovely since the revamp, the decor is appealing and there is a great sense of space in there. The staff are pleasent, helpful and great fun. While the menu is varied the food is at best disappointing. Chicken goujons were chewy, lasagne had undisolved oxo cube in it which ruined it, the cod was tasteless and not pin boned, the burger lacked seasoning and the onion rings were not homemade. As a result I thought it bad value with mains starting at €12. That being said it is a great place for a drink with some excellent offers, just avoid the food.

Food is great and it's a nice relaxed setting. Nice varied menu, very good value. There is plenty of parking available which is very handy.

Have been here three times lately, twice for food and once for a few drinks. The night we went for drinks we had an amazing time, great atmosphere. The first time we ate, the food was only ok, a bit cold and felt like it was microwaved rather than cooked, the next time we ate wasn't much better, when we were trying to order the cashier guys phone was ringing and he answered it, the chef was trying to persuade us to order things instead of what we were trying to order and when the food came it wasn't very hot, I had a burger and asked for the cheese to be melted and it wasn't. Overall not impressed with the food.

Called to Oskars on a spur of the moment decision as I'm aware the current owner has a good reputation in the food industry & was not disappointed. The variety on the menu is vast without being excessive covering everything from light bites to full meals. The Burgers are to die for and are a meal in their own right & served with chips that you would go a long way to find better. One of our party is a bit of a curry connoisseur & was much impressed with the Madras. Reasonable prices, friendly efficient staff & firmly on my radar for the future.well worth the 20 min drive from home. One (if any) negative was that we all personally thought the lighting a little dim, despite being daytime, Realised this as we were going to browse the local free paper provided on the bar & it was too much of a strain but that could be to counteract the airy spacious interior which is nice while eating not to be cramped in with too many tables in small areas. All round 100%
