Great new fresh look to the newly renovated snug. A great ambiance and an excellent selection on the Christmas Menu as well as also enjoying the traditional T bone and fillet steaks. Generous portions and yummy desserts. Helpful and welcoming staff , thankyou for making our xmas night very special.

Visited here christmas week with family. Highly recommend the fillet steak, has to be the best steak I have ever had. Great menu, great service and great food. We were a party of 6 and all enjoyed our meals. It can get very busy because it is a popular place would recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment. 10/10

Can't review the food as never made it that far (although menu was limited). Was in a queue and I asked the older lady who was organising tables roughly how long we would be waiting (based on where we were) when I was told " there are people ahead of you", I said politely yes I know that's why I...

We were waiting 50 mins for our main courses, when a young member of staff was asked after 35 mins about our food, the response was "cant you see we are busy".... the mains were between €12 and € 13 each,...

Quirky place with natural wood tables and benches. Good selection of Irish grub and enormous portions. Friendly and efficient staff. Gets busy quickly at lunchtime as locals enjoy the good food and good value.

Ate in the snug at the weekend after it was recommended by a number of people. Food was lovely and service was quick. They were in the middle of renovating though so would love to return and feel the full ambiance when it is fully back to normal. Only complaint is that the burger was too big! Very reasonable also...
