Dined here for dinner with family. Lovely pub/restaurant in a fabulous location! Food was very good except for the chips. Soggy and inedible.

We stopped off here on a journey from Cork to Waterford. Lovely place, didn't have food but it looked good. We had a coffee, which was good and a scone with jam and cream and it was hot, very nice. Would call again.

Stopped here after a day if strolling. Nice friendly atmosphere. Casual style. Did find the upstairs area very stuffy and warm but downstairs was airy.

We had a very new nice lunch in this very charming pub. It's situated on the water and it is very quaint and also clean. The food was very quite good and the service was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and lunch at the Quay.

We called in here early one evening, in fact before the time service started. But that wasn't a problem. Given menus and waitress went off to find out specials for us. We've eaten here lots of times before and it's a lovely, atmospheric bar with good food and really nice staff.

Thank CorkCouple
