Our starters were tasty and portions were generous but three of us had curry for mains and it was disappointing!However I have eaten here many times and it is usually very good.... More

We stopped here for lunch. We were in a hurry so chose the toasted sandwiches which were very tasty. All in all we enjoyed our lunch here and would return.

Ross the manager of O'Donnells was extremely helpful. At the very last minute, he facilitated a party for 70 people. We were very grateful that he looked after us so efficiently and the night was a great success. Thanks again to Ross and his staff

We received a warm welcome and were shown to our table by a pleasant lady who subsequently took our order and served our food. I found the food to be rather bland, nothing special for the price. This place is comfortable and in a good location so we'll definitely give it another go.

Was there for a quick bite to eat. Offer of early bird very good pricewise. Quality ok. Starter was good, chickenbreast for main on the dry side. Service ok. Pint very well drawn. Overall reasonable, nothing special. And the whole place was quite dark.
