Went in for lunch with a friend. A very good menu great selection. My friend had fish & chips very good. I had without doubt the best fish pie I have ever eaten. Just so tasty and plenty of fish in it. And to top it off excellent friendly service. Will be back there on my next visit to Dingle

We were in Dingle over Christmas, and this was one of the few places open. This was a cozy pub with very good food and friendly staff, and great local music. They have music almost every night.

I think that theres a good chance you may be confusing us with someplace else . "Teeny- Tiny " ? This is a big place with lots of seating and tables so maybe check before writing - just a suggestion !! More
