Probably my favourite place to eat in Wexford awesome staff and always a bit of banter to be had. Two fires on the go in the winter months prefect after a day's kitesurfing

We ate here twice whilst staying in Duncannon and tried a variety of dishes off the menu. All the food was lovely especially the fish and seafood. Good specials board and a nice selection of drinks. Very friendly service too.

A cosy & welcoming Irish pub that serves excellent food. We ate here twice during our visit to Duncannon. The menu was varied and a good children's menu was also available (with colouring and activities on the menu for the children to do whilst waiting!). Delicious food, great Guinness. Desserts were fab. I recommend you visit if you're ever in... More

Roches Bar is delightful, we arrived on a very cold day in late March to be greeted by a warm wood stove and charming service. The seafood was wondeful, I have seldom tasted such tasty prawns. There was also good choice of draught beeers on offer. We will certainly be going again!

The chicken curry is so delicious!...and so was the vegetable soup! All the rest was fab too...but those two dishes really exceeded our expectations! They have a great kids' menu and an extensive selection of craft beers!

Ate here twice in four days! Great bar area, typically Irish, with roaring fire. Simple but wonderfully-cooked food, particularly the curries (we believe the chef is Sri Lankan) and if you've a yearning for a game of pool or darts, they've a back bar for that too. It was the sort of pub we were hoping to find on our... More

Visiting with a friend after a long walk by the hook! Great and quick service, and an absolutely delicious menu! We got the Thai curry and the goujons and everything was super fresh and tasty! The bar is beautiful and you really feel at home here! Decided on dessert after too! Homemade brownie! Just delicious! There's also a great selection... More

We were recommended to Roches by our landlady. Typical dark, rambling interior, part of which (at the back) was rather cold. Once we had found a warm table we ordered food - fish for both of us as we were only yards from the sea. Very good - and equally good, relaxed service. After eating, and belatedly discovering that they... More
