Home-made crisps on the bar are either a smokescreen or an indication of attention to detail. In the case of the Lough Pool Inn it's the latter, the detail even extending to a bowl of dog biscuits nearby. This is a friendly 'locals' pub in a decidedly rural setting, and with a lovely garden beside the eponymous pond. We were here for Sunday lunch and the menu was exactly what you'd hope for. The roast beef on the table one side looked excellent; the two mixed grills the other side magnificent. We chose fish pie, which was full of meaty fish and tasty too. The sticky toffee pudding (James Martin's recipe I gather) was one of only a very few I've awarded 10/10. Well done! Light sponge but properly sticky all the way through. The service from the friendly barman and waitresses was exemplary. The building is a text-book black and white country pub and if you're looking for a trip out (easy reach of M50) and dependable, homely food, this should be on your list.
