I had a very nice fish and chips. I believe that the fish is fresh, not frozen. At any rate it was very nice.

I must admit we weren't expecting too much of McCabes as it looked like just a town pub and we were the only people eating, but the staff were extremely efficient and friendly and there was a very good choice on the menu. Certainly not...More

Enjoyed an afternoon in McCabe's a few years back and thought it was a fantastic pub. As we had our two wee, very well behaved dogs with us on this occasion, we checked on line to see if McCabe's was doggie friendly and apparently it...More

The date on the exterior of this friendly bar says 1887 and there's an appropriately old-fashioned atmosphere on the inside too. The first thing that strikes you is the central circular bar, with its traditional brass rail and cute cherubs looking down from above. Elsewhere, the walls are decorated with all manner of old bottles, books and jars which, along with the real fireplace, give the impression of a homely, well lived-in space. As a result, McCabes is a popular destination for locals and tourists, ranging from shoppers to families, weekend revellers and, thanks to the six televisions, football fans wanting to catch up with the big fixtures.
