“Nice pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Second time here, this place lived up to the expectations. Good food. Nice staff. First time here wasn't as good but seemed to have been a once off. Would recommend.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

To be honest, everyone in my group seemed to enjoy their meal more than I did, but I think it comes down to discovering that I'm not a big fan of lamb (but thanks for the opportunity to try it). Would go back to try other menu items. The soup and dessert were delicious.

Dear Amanita M
Thank you for your review.
Sorry that you did not enjoy your main course, lamb is definitely not a dish for everyone but glad you were adventurous and tried something different.
We would be delighted to welcome you back and will suggest a few dishes for you to try and hopefully this time you will enjoy your main course.
Kind regards
Cecily & all the team at Donnellys

“Nice to return to sample the menu again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

I had seafood chowder for starters, the flavour was good although the texture was a little too liquid for my liking. My main course was half of a pheasant on a bed of mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetables. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

This is how decent food at a decent price is done puts a certain restaurant down the road highly to shame. Prawns are amazing, crab claws awesome and the black pudding entree delicious! Atmosphere always great and caters to all age groups.
