Enjoyed a lunch x 8 of us last Wednesday, great food, very generous helpings and fabulous friendly service. Good value for money. Would highly recommend. Would need to book if a big group, it's a very busy spot, no wonder!

We stayed two days in Ballinrobe and decided to not switch to another eating place for the second evening, which says enough. Friendly atmosphere.

It was my fathers birthday so was the obvious choice. The welcome we get is always very warm, welcoming and real. Mum and I always have scampi as it is superb, dad... More

The proprietor is welcoming to every person who opens the door and seems to be on first name terms with at least 90% of them all. Fast efficient service, good food, great value, ample parking. Spoke to a few locals... More

Luke was the most gracious host. Food excellent and menu extensive. So many locals clearly beloved local institution. Great options for families, kids, yet ambience also intimate. The pub is so well maintained and all pictures and decor well suited. Classy place! Never will find a spot quite like this!
