I visited Smyth's this weekend and as usual it was a brilliant experience.

This is a warm, cosy family run pub. Kieran, Cathy and staff go out of their way to ensure that everyone is well looked after and catered for. I had dinner on Saturday, it was reasonably priced, well presented and of a very high standard. The fire was blazing, there was a good crowd present, despite being busy the food was served in good time, it was appetising and enjoyable which was especially welcome on such a cold night.

It was so good that I returned again on Monday for lunch, this was another cold day and it was lovely to get a hot tasty lunch. It is well frequented by locals which is a good sign.

This is also a great spot to go for a few drinks, it is atmospheric and great spot to meet locals. Kieran is always available to give advice on the locality, places to go, events, etc. The pub is a haven of local history with many photographs adorning the walls which illustrate the history of the area.

There is also an excelelnt gift shop next door.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit(s) and hope to return again soon.

For a pub I was surprised how good the food was an great value. Everything we ordered, 3 adults dinning and 2 children, was simply top quality and cooked to perfection. The Guiness and Heineken which was sampled too were lovely! Friendly staff and a cosy relaxing atmosphere
