Visited on Sunday afternoon with fantastic music with good weather. We were outside listening to wonderful Ferguson avenue band for entire afternoon then booked for dinner that night. The food was delicious good size servings . Service and hospitality was fantastic . Noticed a board that mentioned jazz on Saturday afternoons . We walked around this historic town so interesting so much history .
Needed accomodation at short notice and Clare tourist info said Magpie & Stump had a few rooms and may be able to help. We had been there previously for lunch 6 months prior and I thought the atmosphere was really good, so decided to book for the weekend. even though our room was small it had everything, and decor was new and fresh! double bed felt like it had a woollen underlay and was very comfy. Bar fridge, elec jug, toaster, plunger coffee etc - everything worked! we had dinner there both nights, schnitzel first night and grilled fish and osso bucco the second which neither of us could fault, Numerous times we were told Paul & Amanda have done an amazing job with the pub and brought it back from the brink of extinction. it had a real friendly and homely atmosphere that we love. We even met the pub cat (PC) who strolled in and out of our room at random! we had a shared bathroom but this wasnt a problem and it was renovated beautifully! we loved our stay and will definitely be back!…
We stayed, with friends, overnight in Mintaro at the Magpie and Stump. The place was recommended by friends. The owners and staff went above and beyond looking after their customers, they are particularly friendly and charming. We stayed for the evening meal which had a wide choice, was excellent value and a great meal. Can recommend their house wines which, in our case were from grapes grown in the owners own vineyard. They have a large garden area and we enjoyed great entertainment, throughout the afternoon and evening. Not a lot of accommodation so book early to get in there. Would thoroughly recommend.
We stayed in Mintaro and had a short walk to this amazing pub. The extremely friendly owners and staff went above and beyond looking after their customers. They have all day dining and our meals were excellent. They have a lovely big garden area and there was great entertainment throughout the afternoon and early evening. They also have accommodation available, which the owner showed us and the three rooms available have been upgraded to a high standard, no old pub rooms here. The bathrooms were high spec too. Two rooms share one bathroom and the other room has an ensuite. Great for a small group staying together. Can highly recommend.
