I'm pretty local to here, and find the food can be hit or miss. Yes the chowder is probably the best in the region, IF its warm, and if it has the little bits of lemon added, or on the side.the last time I was there the chowder was cold, no lemon in it, main courses were all served with the predictable carrot and parsnip battens, which were also cold and uncooked. Monks does this you see, they have a rush, can't cope, then struggle to recover. They are also very fussy, almost rude about kitchen closing, something their rivals, linnanes are better at. Nonetheless the Guinness is ALWAYS great, thr roaring fire a welcome solace, and the staff are smiley and friendly, plus the location is incredible. I will never tire of going there, but don't go as often as I could, maybe due to the unpredictability.it could be a 5, but 3 for now..
