We were driving from Cork to Waterford and decided to drive into Youghal for a snack in the evening time. We wandered up the main street passing a lot f closed and for sale shops and businesses until we came across this lovely place. Theres a pub bistro attached to an old hotel so we decided to have a look. Its a very nice old fashioned place with an abundance of staff, a nice relaxed informal atmosphere and a menu that seriously undersells itself. As mentioned we were only having a snack unfortunately as when i was served the mushroom soup i ordered, it came in a kettle, was poured into a bowl which had a small island in its centre topped with a garnish i couldn't identify but tasted delicious. the soup also was wonderful and as we sat, my wife just had coffee, we watched all sorts of attractively presented dishes passing us to the lucky diners in the bar. the prices were very reasonable, the staff were plentifull and friendly and we decided we would stop off the main road shortly on our wy again to Cork and have the whole shebang. Well worth the trip.
