We stopped over for a late lunch after seeing the building from the road. The thatched roof building is in fantastic condition and a real treat to be able to go inside such a great old building. the service and food was perfect!!

Great option for Sunday lunch, traditional food, done well. Very reasonable prices too. Busy at peak times on Sunday, may need to book at table. Staff friendly and helpful.

Ok pub food - portions generous, but menu uninspiring. Staff not switched on and didn't really care if we were served or not.

We just dropped in for a drink on our way to Cork and found the atmosphere cheery and warm. We may have considered dining however the dining-room was closed for a wedding reception. Overall, a charming pub with great atmosphere and friendly, welcoming staff.
