Nice staff - warm and welcoming, food was average compared to previous visits, but the lack of atmosphere spoils it which is a great pity.

A Pub Restaurant that I frequent often. Good Food, Friendly Staff and Good Ambience. A little out of the way, but well worth the visit.

Went for our usual saturday eve meal only to be told the premises was closing the next day. Very shocked to hear this. Always got excellent food and service on our visits. Wishing Orna all the best in the future.

A lovely place to while away a beautiful, unseasonably warm April afternoon. We sat outside and enjoyed the spicey chicken wings with a blue-cheese dip. Thanks to Orna, the owner, for a lovely afternoon.

The food here is amazing! I crave the lasagne, I know, wow, but I never liked lasagne until I tried it here. Great little pub hidden away. Friendly staff, blazing fires, it's good old reliable.

My wife and I had a delicious meal here last weekend. Potato skins were very tasty, My wife had fish and I had the chicken wings which were the best I ever tasted. Compliments to the chef. Highly reccommended establishment for a dining experience. Cant wait to dine here again.

Nice country pub with friendly staff and some good pub grub. The chicken wings are amazing however I felt the menu was priced at "Dublin" prices so was a little expensive considering it's location.

We were here as a large family group , really had a nice experience the place was busy - I think that may explain why the food was a little disappointing. I n general it was good but a few things let it down - cold onion rings with the burger, uncooked veg with the roast, chips a bit soggy... More

Chicken wings are awesome my wife loves the fish. Orna the owner is very pleasant. The potato skins are a meal in themselves. Good scenery from our table.

We were lucky enough to be told about Shank's Mare. Our only regret is that we only got to go twice. The owner Orna is wonderfully welcoming and an attentive host. The food is excellent the atmosphere is comfortable and filled with locals. An added bonus, they provided shuttle service. Try the deep fried brie!!!!
