“Worth driving to”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

On spending a week recently in Leitrim village, I had the good fortune to call in to this BLACK AND WHITE winning bar. Great pints of Guinness in this village! Lovely garlic mushroom starter, great Batter. Followed by Bacon and Veg ( out of Cabbage) and washed down by a nice mug of Illy Coffee.
Look forward to popping back

“poor customer care”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Went to the Barge on Sunday 26th of August 2012, went to the bar and ordered a bottle of miller (bar man was not too friendly, think he was the owner), tasted the miller and it was gone off, by a year !! I brought the drink back and a young girl changed it for another bottle. Yet again the miller was gone off, the expiry date on the bottle was 2011, I brought it back and the man who I think was the owner , asked me bluntly whats the problem now and I explained that the bottle was gone off and he refused to change it. I asked for my money back and he replied no, he was so ignorant!! I would never go back there again !!

“Poor service”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Went it to Barge 11/08/2012 at approx 20.15. Waited for service staff to assist us. We then approached the bar and spoke to a dark haired lady and asked her were they still serving food. She looked ar her watch and said yes, being very dismissive,she then told us to sit were we want and pointed to a area and told us to get our own menus. God be with the days of meet and greet, customer care, and so much for the Irish welcome, we then left as we were not welcome. Would never go back, or recommend.

“Just the ticket”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Had a lovely pub meal here. Food was generous and tasty. Nothing too fancy just good honest food. Had a great chat with the landlord, and we all enjoyed the experience. We were a party of 5 adults and 2 children, and all enjoyed the evening. When you go to a pub for dinner this is just what you want.
