Breakfast was the worst I've ever had. I was served my full 'Irish' almost too soon, I was barely seated and beginning to look around when an obviously pre cooked and too-quickly reheated breakfast was thrown up in front of me. Everything on the plate was barely warm, not hot, except for the fried egg. I called the waitress and asked for the offering to be reheated, it was returned just so, except that the egg was now rubberised! To add insult to injury, the breakfast was priced at €7.95(not bad) but I was charged extra for a top up of a cold coffee and extra toast, having only received two slices of the worst dry toast I have ever eaten. The final bill was €14.75 to include a cup of Tea my wife had after joining me. I told the waitress that I was surprised at the charge for topping up the coffee and two more miserly slices of toast, her response suggested that I was ungrateful for the fabulous fare on offer. I'm still speechless

Disapointing after the reviews in the paper. I arrived at 1.30 and asked for a sandwich and was told there was no food left to make a sandwich. No chicken or ham! Despite Butcher across the road and despite the fact that they advertise that they serve food until 6pm. I was not impressed.
