“Sqigl Disappointed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Having eaten and definitely will eat again in Roches bar - we were looking forward to taking the next step and having some fine dining in Sqigl. Very unhappy with the result. The menu was nothing like the 'sample' menu on the website. We were the second people to arrive but two of the 'today's specials' were not available. The waitress could not handle the room on her own and we had an empty bottle of wine and water for over 30 mins with no approach and were not asked if we wanted coffee or tea.
My onion rings turned out to be calamari - nice idea but not as a surprise and when we asked the waitress for a fork so my partner could tackle the meringue it never arrived.
The food was reasonable and the service was poor so overall we were very disappointed. Having just purchased a holiday home locally we were looking forward to another eating option but honestly would not plan to return to Sqigl.

Authentic Irish bar. Friendly staff, attractive surroundings with first class food available. The small resort of Duncannon is worth a visit, the fort being a must see. The beach is nice though the sea is quite polluted.

“Nice Bar”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Called in here for a drink twice.
Nice atmosphere and friendly service. There is a good food menu but we did not eat in this occasion. They have a good choice of craft beers both Irish and international.

“Try the Thai Green Curry..”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The food in Roches has to be the best around.. There is a lot of places to eat in the area but I keep ending up back here.. All the dishes I have tried I could not fault one.. Soup is so tasty with a choice of white or brown bread.. Goujons & chips ( have to be one of my favourites) you have not tasted chips unless you have had them here amazing!! Thai green curry outstanding, I could go on for a while here, highly recommend, staff friendly & helpful and most of all value for money..
