The food in Donegans is always consistently good and great value.
I have eaten here several times and never been dissapointed.
Casual and freindly atmosphere

“fantastic food and professional and friendly staff”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Every time we go to Donegans restaurant upstairs we are made extremely welcome by the staff there. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a rustic feel. There is an excellent choice on the menu and the chef's are willing to offer any advice on anything they have fresh in on the day. We can recommend O'Hara's chicken, the stir-frys in oyster sauce and the steaks are the best we have had anywhere. Every meal we have had has been perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. On leaving the restaurant we always enjoy reading the compliment book at the top of the stairs which includes comments from visitors from England, Australia and Canada. Well done Lynne Ivan Brenda and not forgetting the Chef's.

“standard pub grub”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

loved the effort they have made out the back. great on a sunny day. Too dark and depressing inside. The usual offering of crispy chilli chicken, etc. But nice enough

“Avoid like the plague”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Firstly I entered donegans looking forward to a spot of lunch, initially I found the staff obnoxious with zero customer service skills and in fact I felt like an inconvenience to them. After a long wait, food arrived the plates were boiling hot to the point that they burnt us taking them from the waiter who failed to even warn us ! More shockingly however I found a long black hair intertwined within my food, I notified the staff who were reluctant to apologise and again made me feel a nuisance. Overall a dire, horrible, revolting place. I have never written a review before but I felt like I had to after this shambolic experience. Take my advice avoid!
