Ive ate here twice.I had the burger the first time and it wasn't great.The meat wasn't very lean.This time I had the steak sandwich. The meat was very fatty.I left disappointed.Its not terribly bad but good enough for a quick bite if your not too fussy.

We were over as part of a stag and visited the bar area, the staff were all really friendly and nothing was too much, the customer service received would make me come back as well as recommend to anyone who is traveling to Arklow.

First, the people were incredible and very friendly. Second the food - OMG - it was amazing and seriously some of the best I've had in Arklow - I totally recommend this to everyone but especially foreigners who want a flare of Irish.
