I didn't get to eat in Vaughans...as I barely got through the door. We arrived to be told at 4.55 that the kitchen had closed and there were no reservations left for dinner. I looked around to see at least a half dozen tables waiting to receive their food. No offer to have a drink at the bar or make... More

We lucked into this restaurant for lunch. We were there about 1 in the afternoon and thought we had missed the lunch crowd because the restaurant was only about 1/4 full. But by the time we left, it was packed, inside and out... and it is a big place. The food was great!

Our family visited here late on Easter Sunday lunch. In truth we didn't expect to get a table so we were happily surprised when we were seated by a very friendly waitress in less than 5 minutes. We had visited Vaughans on a number of occasions some years ago and stopped going there as the service was so bad and... More

We visited here for afternoon snack whilst travelling in West Clare. We stopped and ordered four glasses of wine and BLT sandwiches. We had to pay for everything in advance of service. It was a beautiful day and the venue was very inviting with outdoor seating in lovely Spring sunshine. The wine was fine, when the sandwiches arrived, I smelt... More

We went into the restaurant for late lunch on Easter Sunday and they were extremely busy, however they took care of us, provided great service and good food. The fish and chips was excellent, the mussels a bit small. The crème brulee was out of this world! they were very efficient and could not ask for more.

Heard great things but was very disappointed. The chowder was like fish stock, pure water. Also ordered crab claws which were overpriced and tiny. certainly not worth the visit and wont be coming back., Staff were very friendly but unfortunately it stops at that.

Came here with the entire family. It was summer, so the pub was super busy, but we were accommodated at a table pretty quickly nevertheless. Service was good, food fresh and delicious.

Heard loads of great things about here so we decided to try it out today. I ordered scampi and chips, nearly 18euro, I didn't mind as it was a treat. Chips were nice but was very disappointed with the scampi. I noticed in the 1st one that the vein was left in it, immediately turned me off.. then I found... More
