“Great food at good prices”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Angler's with family and friends. The food was very tasty and very generous portions, both for Carvery at lunch time and dinner in the evening. Not only is the food tasty and generous portions sizes it's very good value for money. I recommend going in hungry as you won't want to leave a bite behind. Highly recommend this establishment and can't wait to go back for another visit.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We were on our way to visit an attraction and had stopped in Ballyconnel more for directions than food but on getting a nice aroma we just had to go in here for lunch. What a very nice place we found, an Oirish themed bar but not overdone and it all looked natural. I had the cod and what a large piece I got! Struggled to eat such a large portion but was too tasty to leave! Surprisingly we did not have to pay till we were leaving, nice to be trusted. Great visit, will go here again.

“Super food”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Sunday lunch in Anglers Rest is excellent. It's carvery with a great choice of beef, turkey, fish, chicken etc with 2 veg and roast, mashed and chips. Very generous portions and staff are very friendly and helpful.
Evening meals are great too with super steaks of a great size...mini steaks are not mini size and so tasty. Fish is great too. Meals are served with peas, side salad and chips. Also good selection of sweets. If you are in Ballyconnell make a point of calling at the Anglers Rest and treat yourself to a great meal

“Second visit in 10 days”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Last review l wrote on their accommodation page, didn't realise their was a restaurant page.
Anyway we were doing a bit of sightseeing in the area & called in for lunch as we had enjoyed it so much the last time.
Had chicken which was excellent, garlic potatoes, mashed potatoes, carrots, peas & cauliflower. I said l'll never eat all this & l cleared the plate. Smithwicks was excellent too.
The staff are very friendly, even gave us directions to where we were going.
Hope to have many more trips to Ballyconnell & the Anglers Rest for lunch.
It is what lunch should be, meat, veg & potatoes, plain food cooked well, in pleasant surroundings & a friendly face to welcome you.
