Myself and my wife while out shopping popped in. We had never tried it before and I am glad we did. Bright modern with some people sitting down eating already. We were greeted quickly and professionally by the barman. Given the menus and told of the special of the day. We ordered tea with extra tea bags in it while... More

We expected to be seated and served at 7.30 by 10pm we had not received our main course and there was only one other group in the place. Am disgusted and disappointed that anyone could be treated this way we were also sold Tesco's finest prosecco for €21.50 - it's €14 in the shop will NEVER go back

Had dinner here with family recently. Service was very slow. Garlic mushrooms were awful- there was a horrible taste of old oil off them. One of our group ordered a medium rare steak which came out well done. Another ordered the steak sandwich- the baguette was completely covered in pepper. I mean tonnes of pepper. I dont know what that... More

This place was great when it opened and until recently, really nicely decorated - good all day menu, good service, very clean - great coffee, etc. I used to pop in all the time and take friends/family for coffee or lunch and it was always great apart from one silly wrangle over the desert menu one Sunday afternoon! However, I... More

If you're looking for pub grub in Claremorris, you can't do better than Maxwells. Great selection on the menu and the staff were very friendly. Time to become a regular.

With little time to spare 2 Fridays ago, myself and my family had 20 minutes to spare before attending a local concert in the Town Hall Claremorris. We orderered Chowder and Brown Bread, within minutes it arrived and it was delicious and good value. Would heartily recommend.

My partner and I had lunch there on May 8th. Bar is nice, clean and modern. Staff are friendly, but we found the food to be only fair. The veg was either out of a jar or frozen, but definitely not fresh. No horseradish sauce for the beef even though I specifically asked if they had some before I ordered... More

Popped in here for some pub grub. Food was nice and the bar was modern with flat screen tvs all around. One thing I liked in particular was that the kitchen is open view so you know that this place is very hygenic. Service was very good.
