Our hotel staff recommended this spot for lunch. The vegetable soup was the best of the week.
The shrimp salad was super. Everything was so good we came back for dinner. The roast for dinner was lamb and pork which was quite good with the traditional mash, gravy & veggies.

The warm fire was a welcome addition on a cold wet day.

This was the first of several visits to Irish pubs for dining during our 8 day land voyage around the country. It was clearly the best as well. Locally owned, as many or most of the pubs in Ireland are, it oozed of personal attention and service. The entire staff consisted of a cook, a server and a bartender. They were soooooooo smooth and so efficient. The food presentations were super. The food itself was great. The value of our meal was extraordinary. We just landed at this place along the main street of Portarlington but this place was a true winner!
