Just stay away. Unfortunately its in my home town & I have no choice but to use this place on a night out, which they know, which is why they need an overhaul. Needs a lift & new staff. Staff just don’t care

Very good environment and food. One of the nicest places in castlebar to enjoy quality food. The only negative is that the waitresses are not really so clever

Great service, poor food We both ordered fish, Hake and Fresh Cod in a beer batter. The Hake was full of bones and the Cod in batter was saturated in oil, not good.

Stopped in Cox's after a round-trip drive to Ceide Fields. I ordered the roast beef special and the Mrs. Had the Orlando chicken. Both were outstanding and reasonably priced!! Wait-staff were extremely attentive and the Guiness was well poured. A great find in Castlebar.

Excellent steak on stone, washed down by a very nice wine and served with a smile. Good value and pleasant atmosphere

Don't know sorry but I have never had to book because if you can't get in the dining room then there are lots of tables in the bar area where they serve meals.. Ok.....

Yes, all three of us had the ribeye steak. It was one of the best meals, if not the best, I had in all of Ireland during my visit. Cox's takes great pride in the quality of their food and it shows.
