“Great food, lovely staff, nice atmosphere.”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

We stop off here a couple of times each year on our way back to the West from Dublin. We always, without exception, enjoy the food both in the Restaurant and Bar. Food is always so fresh, plentiful ( Fish Pie to be recommended ....yum!) and served by very nice friendly staff. The Bar has a lovely atmosphere and is always buzzing without being too noisy. It is so worth stopping off here for a nice meal or great pub grub!
