Description: A visit to the Northwest is not complete without stopping off at Award-Winning Langs Gastro Pub in Grange, County Sligo. This family run establishment began serving food 8 years ago. Since then, the combination of quality home cooked food & our friendly & welcoming atmosphere in relaxed surroundings continues to attract tourist & locals alike. Because of its popularity, the area was extended recently with extensive dining area, though newly built, blending seamlessly with the old. Langs Bar & Restaurant is in one of the most picturesque locations in Ireland with the majestic Benbulben mountain on one side & the rugged beauty of the Atlantic coast at Streedagh Beach on the other. It's only 15 miles from Sligo - the shopping capital of the Northwest & is also only 10 miles from the fun of Bundoran. It serves as a gateway to Donegal & Northern Ireland.

I previously gave Lang's a glowing review but a repeat visit wasn't up to par.
I just had a main course and a coffee but there were problems with both.
I ordered a Thai salmon curry. What I got was nothing like any sort of Thai curry whatsoever. I would seriously worry about any chef who thinks there should be dairy cream in a Thai curry. It is simply wrong. What I got was more like a bad attempt at some sort of creamy korma - no Thai flavours and no heat - none! Really, a plate of bad, bland creamy food. Not my, thing and not a Thai curry.
The coffee I had wasn't bad. That is, it wasn't bad until I went to pay for it. I was charged the price of two espressos for a double espresso. When I questioned this I was met with confusion. Maybe the owner or manager should visit some other cafés and restaurants to learn how to price their hot drinks appropriately.

Maybe I got unlucky and happened on the one dish that the chef has no flair for and maybe they've since changed their coffee pricing policy - I hope so as previously, I was very impressed with the food and service.

A lot of options on the menu and haven't had a bad dish in about 5 visits. Can get busy on weekends so get in there early.

Not the usual pub grub. The menu is a few notches above that, and everything our small group ordered was brilliant! Also had the opportunity to down a few pints in the bar area. Very nice and comfortable spot. I look forward to returning some day!

Langs always delivers great service and really lovely food,we are never disappointed,only one slight comment is that a little music would maybe create a bit of atmosphere which it is lacking in. Otherwise definately the best food in the area.
