Had lunch last Saturday. Had the Crab sandwich followed by The apple crumble.
Both of which were excellent.

“Perfection”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stopped here while driving the Ring of Kerry. This little cozy place had super fresh food that was absolutely delicious. We had the goat cheese salad and open crab sandwiches, with hot chocolate. Everything was amazing.

“Lunch on a cold day.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great atmosphere. Got a seat by the fire. Food a little pricey. Good service. Clean restaurant. Just a little more uppity types of food than I usually like. Tasted good; difficult to find something plain on the menu.

“Very good”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Have eaten here many time and food is always good. the barman is excellent and very friendly. The fire was a little 'poor' the two days we called here - it was a little cold in the bar. Saying that, I would definitley go back here for the food and service.
