“Go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Spent a couple of days in galway and this little gem of a bar quickly became my favourite. Great beer and even better staff. Was treated like I was their favourite customer they had known forever, cannot say enough nice things about the place. Lisa you are a legend, thanks for everything.

“Overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Went here with my husband last week and found it very overpriced. The platter we got was small and not value for money and the wine is grossly overpriced for the quality, which is not particularly good. Overall staff and atmosphere are friendly, but the overpriced menu and wine list let it down.

“Cottage Bar - excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

Great little spot!! Lovely atmosphere, great food, excellent wine and really friendly staff!! Menu has lots of variety, we had tapas which were all very tasty. Lovely wine menu with some really good special offers. Atmosphere was great, some live traditional music in a corner, really cosy setting!

“Decent Bar: good food, great beers, nice relaxed atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

As the heading alludes, ticks all the boxes, nice cosy atmospheric bar. Food is quite good and priced well, occasionally offers 2 for 1 meals mid week which are a steal. Great range of beers.... staff are always attentive, service prompt.... quite family friendly I've noticed without being annoying to other patrons.... (don't have kids, so an important observation!!)

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

Staff are excellent, food is superb - whats more to say??! Not to mention the fact that it is a gastro pub, if you like your beers and home brews, this is just the spot for you. Ps for those wine lovers, I recommend a glass of the French Savignon Blanc - delicious. And at 5E per glass...a steal. Go there!
