Myself and my boyfriend went to Finnegans for lunch today. My boyfriend had the seafood chowder and got food poisoning. He has been so sick all evening from it. Would not recommend going here.

It's great for students on a budget and want a nice home cooked meal. Staff is really nice and it's in a great location in town

We caught this p[lace just before it closed and the staff were excellent in accomodating us. We wanted some basic Irish fare and that was what we got. Very reasonable prices and piping hot food. Goodish selection of drinks. Shepherds Pie and Stew were our main dishes and these were good. Would visit again if in area.

Nothing spectacular but always a reliable place to go for a quick bite to eat at a very affordable price. Staff are always very pleasant and lovely atmosphere too

We stopped here for lunch and had an amazing meal - shepherd's pie, bangors and mash, and beef stew. Then dessert! It was fabulous and delicious, staff was gracious and kind. Definitely a local spot with kids and families enjoying meals together, I will definitely be going back and have recommended to friends and family.

Have been a few times, good for home cooked food. Big portions and nice staff and atmosphere. But both me and my partner felt very nauseous and got sick after dinner there one night. Not the highest quality and they charge for MiWadi (?!). Not many gf options either. Not high on my list after getting sick.

Stopped in here on a cold day over Christmas with my wife and son for lunch. I ordered the chicken with salad and chips and my wife had the shepherds pie and my son had chicken also.

Cozy restaurant with friendly servers and varied menu. Fish and chips were far more than I could finish, and my children loved the stew. Beautiful old hearth setting on the second floor!
