Had the most delightful eve in Cohans. The food was just Devine. Had pork pear served on a bed of lovely salad leaves the combination of pork with pear was just mouth watering and left me wanting more.
Main course the sea food platter was soooooo good , fab presentation will be back very soon for more of that.
The apricot bread and butter pudding was to die for.
Delighted that we now have a superb restaurant in cong will be spreading the word. Best of luck to the new owners

Was passing through Cong yesterday and popped into the newly opened Cohan's pub. What a delight! Renovated tastefully with an air of Irish country kitchen which was reflected also in the menu. Chowder was rich and filling served with homemade bread. The lamb and vegetable served on a bed of mash was so tender and tasty. To end it all was the lemon posset so creamy and refreshing...finger licking good! Food presented beautifully... Service was great, always with a smile and very helpful. Had a lovely afternoon and would definitely recommend it !

Having read reviews from other visitors I can only conclude we picked a bad day, maybe they don't like Monday's in Cohan's !!. It probably functions ok as a pub but they really need to look at their food and the manner in which they serve it. We ordered One beer battered cod and chips which was served first = the cod was really soggy and tasted like it had been fried at low temperature in a sea of oil, the chips were thin & stringy some underdone some cremated. To top it off the whole dish was smothered in SALT. Why this catastrophe was presented on what appeared to be newspaper on a plate is a mystery to me. One crispy pork salad = well the salad leaves were edible but the two stripes of thick fat with the tiniest bit of lean meat on one and both cremated on one side was just an insult, and this was a main course!. Seriously this was just a handful of salad leaves served in a soup plate with two stripes of fat and absolutely nothing else, no tomato,onion,cucumber nothing but a handful of leaves. Two Lamb casserole = very few establishments would dare serve lamb overcooked to this extent but although stringy it was edible and served again on a soup plate with a few dollops of soggy mash & gravy underneath. We decided to have dessert to fill the gap until we could find somewhere else for dinner. We ordered three apple pie with butterscotch sauce and one bread & butter pudding. The bread & butter pudding arrived first and was just ok - bore no resemblance to any bread & butter pudding I've ever tasted but it was warm and sweet although the sauce served with it was so sweet it was like tasting pure sugar. The waitress calmly declared the apple pies are just being made so will take a while !!. When they did arrive they were apple crumble with chocolate sauce not apple pie with butterscotch sauce. When this was pointed out the message from the kitchen was the menu should have said crumble not pie - no apology or offer to exchange them for something else. The jug of water was tepid no ice cubes never mind lemon. I realise this place has only recently started serving food but if they don't get their act together they won't be serving food much longer !. The staff are pleasant enough but need some serious training on the basics for instance, A - You serve all of the people in the party be it 4 or 14 as near as possible at the same time. You do not bring one dish to the table while there is a delay of 10 mins for the other dishes. B - As soon as one person finished eating or pushed the dish away it was cleared from the table, did no one tell them they should wait until all in the party had finished that course before clearing away. C - the menu should be accurate and if not it is not unreasonable to apologise and ask the customer to choose an alternative rather than expect the customer to accept what the chef thinks is a suitable alternative and in this case it certainly was not. We did observe the the staff displayed a very casual attitude towards customers, there is a big difference between being friendly and being offhand. The toilets really need a revamp and are right next to the kitchen. You have to walk right past the wide open kitchen door on the way to and from the toilet and see and hear the kitchen staff - not a good idea. The chairs are very very uncomfortable uncomfortable. And the price, well exorbitant for the food they serve. There are so many places to eat in Cong that serve decent food at reasonable prices I can't see this one surviving unless they take serious stock of what they are doing and put in a bit more effort. I noticed that some café's etc in Cong close on a Monday maybe Cohan's should too because I can not believe this is their normal standard, otherwise why bother going into catering.

Had the pleasure of visiting the newly reopened bar and restaurant in recent days. We indulged in 3 courses, all equally tasty, beautifully presented and served with a smile. The refurb has been tastefully completed and great care has gone into the finer details. The menu is predominantly traditional wholesome Irish food executed to a very high standard, our only advice....leave room for dessert! We will definitely return sooner rather than later. Keep up the good work, expect to hear a lot about this little gem if it can maintain current standards.

We had a lovely meal here on Saturday night. The food was really good. The mince beef and vegetable pie was probably the best I've ever eaten as was the lovely mash it came with. Also had the chocolate pot for dessert which was also very good. The service was also great, really friendly. There is also a small bar area so you can have a drink before sitting down to eat if you want or just have a drink, but seating is limited. We would definitely recommend it, but be sure to book as it was fullly booked on Saturday evening.
