Brilliant local food full of flavour and cooked perfectly. We had a full breakfast, a mini breakfast, scrambled eggs and poached eggs with loads of toast, and great tea & coffee. All were presented very simply but the tastes speak for themselves. We were stuffed for most of the day. A great bustling atmosphere and really friendly staff.

Thanks to Abbie and Andy who provided top class and personal service. I must say, the service is fabulous. Well done to them!!! The food was great as well. The fish pie and the hake was very tasty and the carrots and parsnips are cooked to perfection- better than any restaurant I've ever visited. The fish pie could have done... More

Had a meeting here on Friday and decided to have lunch with my wife afterwards. Excellent food, friendly staff, rapid service all at a reasonable price. Will definitely be having more meetings here in the future. Well done guys 👍👍

Stunningly busy so I had high expectations. Turned out that the food was mediocre at best. If it had been half the price it'd have been reasonable. As it was it was just a sad, overpriced burger. The Guinness was good though.

Great gastro pub , this has always been one of my favourite places .... food is consistently very good ... fish and chips one of the best .... only surpassed by Morans and perhaps O Grady's on the pier ,... very welcoming staff

Had some pub grub here the other evening and had no complaints whatsoever. The service is very efficient and place is nice and cosy with lovely food that wasn't too expensive.

Just had a meal there on way home as a handy spot with own parking . Regular menu offer adequate choice but not enough fish for me (that isn't in a batter). But then look at the fish specials! Plaice and monkfish for for him and a fish stew (de-constructed as it was served on a plate) for me. Both... More

My sister and I ate here our last night in Ireland, on the recommendation of one of the Galway locals that we met. We wanted something casual, with good food, that we could relax and enjoy. This was the perfect place. It was very busy when we walked in (even on a Thursday night). The host staff was pleasant about... More

Poor seafood salad. Huge bones in the cod and a few in the salmon. Took 20 minutes from order to table. When I mentioned the amount of bones I was disappointed the waitress/manager tried to tell me it couldn't be avoided and ran off to tell the kitchen. Might be no harm to own up when food isn't great besides... More
