We visited whilst staying in Cork with friends, it was recommended to us. The food was okay and came out fairly quick considering it was quite busy. The staff were very friendly and attentive checking if everything was okay, my only niggle was the Irish coffee wasn't very good, we wanted our friend to try it for the first time... More

From the reviews I was expecting something special but our lunch here was average . I expect a good seafood chowder to be hearty and tasty. Ours was more a bowl of cream with a few pieces of fish floating around. Mind you a couple of tasty crab claws nearly lifted it. The better half was well pleased with her... More

Had a drink here recently, the place had a good atmosphere. Would have tried food too however limited hours so maybe something they can improve on! Nice cosy fireplace too!

Went in here with friends on a Thursday night. There was an acoustic session going on and lots of people got together to play music. Good combination of music and everyone in the pub seemed to enjoy it. Drinks are well priced and good quality. Nice lady Behind the bar, very friendly. I Would recommend people to visit here

Called into Scannells for a drink on a Monday evening. Very friendly bar man and regulars in the place. We were shown a typical menu and we decided to come back for lunch later in the week. Food is served until 16:00 and is very tasty. We had a steak sandwich and fish and chips, really nice. The Guinness is... More

Very friendly staff. They use local produce and meats, primarily organic. It was delicious. They offer a very nice variety of adult beverages. There was a solid crowd of locals in this place for lunch. Reasonably priced. I would definitely come back to this place.

We have been there by chance as we did not know the place. Nicely welcomed by two nice fellows, we asked for a chowder ... these were the best we ate. Fruit crumble were delicious too. Do not hesitate to enter that pub, you feel really in an Irish pub.

Known in Clonakilty for their seafood chowder for good reason- it was loaded with crab claws, mussels, shrimp and fish. Really nice pub with great service. Didn't get to the outside seating because of the rain but it looked inviting.
