Popped in here with family today, we weren't looking for a huge dinner as some of us had eaten earlier. I had soup, my son had a main course and others had deserts. Soup & dinner for my son arrived. No knives or forks for his dinner and no soup spoon or knife for my bread. They came after about... More

I ate here most nights for a week. Simple but good selection, well cooked and with good quality ingredients. Good craft beers over and above the usual Irish production beers.

Service is extremely slow. Had a chicken curry which was packed with courgette, very little chicken pieces and tasteless. Easily, the worst curry I've eaten in an establishment. Chips were reheated and not fit for consumption.

During a recent weekend festival, my cousin and I decided to dine here. The menu was good and had lots of interesting options, one recommendation I would suggest is maybe to place the menu's on the tables and inform customers of the daily or evening specials as not everyone will look around to hear them! Both of use choose a... More

It was a self serve for about 40 people but there was more than plenty of food left for people wanting seconds so definitely not scabby with the food! Few years before had a christening there and has 3... More
