Could of not been more unwelcome as a family. Avoid. Clearly changed since Jimmy has left so disappointed

New owners doing well to provide good food and great live music. Not open for lunch and quite expensive compared to some other local restaurants.

Great service, nice big outside seating terracr and owners very welcoming. However, food average at best, not good value for money, better places to eat in area.

We’ve been coming to The Rusty Nail for about 11 years now and every time we always have a great experience. They’ve been able to cater to my daughter’s needs as she’s grown up each year: boasting a bouncy castle, pool table, fuse-ball table and...dart board which many rival pubs don’t have here. Nightly entertainment is always great - karaoke, live music, quizzes etc. The food is always great, and if we ever have any concerns Jimmy will always oblige. So glad The Rusty Nail is here each time we return to Campoverde; it wouldn’t be the same without it.More

Love the food here, can't fault it. Always have the veggie breakfast which is superb ( we're not vegetarian but find sausages and bacon filling).Havent had anything from here that I disliked, neither has my hubby. The fish and chips are wonderful, chilli burger wonderful...and I've got to say, their chilli is some of the best I've tasted anywhere, even better than my own! Their cheesy chilli chips are what I crave and usually end up having those, regardless of what I had intended to order. The staff are friendly and efficient and Jimmy is a great host. Highly recommend The Rusty Nail for a taste of home.More

Sunday lunch was delicious, homemade soup, roast pork and chocolate torte to finish all for €9.95. Why would you want to cook ? Always a friendly place to be.

Made to feel welcome on the first night as chairs were made available without question. Hard working staff and lovely food. Home away from home, very comfortable here.
