Had dinner here one evening and lunch the next day. It's a lovely and atmospheric place but in common with many Irish pub restaurants it has too many televisions. Who goes out for a meal in order to watch television? My main was a steak. I asked for medium rare and got raw. Despite trying to get attention of the... More

Thank you for your review, Like you I am not a fan of the tv which is why you won't find one in our new lounge or restaurant, but as we are also a bar it is considered a necessity, especially when a match is on, other that that it is on but silent. I apologies that your steak was... More

Great bar with delicious food and can recommend the fish in either the chowder or on its own. Equally the menu has other tasty options.

The restaurant is nice,and the food is delicious: we had the seafood chowder, smoked salmon and the seafood platter. The only "problem" was the service: quite slow,and after the bill we waited for ages before they came to collect money. At the end,we joined the bar and we had another bill (!!!) and we paid: this is the reason why... More

Thank you for your review, We are delighted you enjoyed the food and I understand your frustration, during the busy August Festival period the servers and we ourselves are overwhelmed with the volume of people coming through the door from morning to late.This is the hardest time of the year for the staff and it is difficult to maintain the...

We visited here last week as I had read about it in a press article. The seafood platter was a real bargain, containing a great choice of hot and cold seafood -crab claws, prawns, fish cakes, salmon, haddock, etc. The staff were friendly and helpful and they serve a great pint of Guinness.

Thank you for your review, The dish you recommended is one of our stars, the seafood platter is a winner with a wide variety of local fish to try cooked in various ways from smoking to pate to beer battered, so if you like fish this is the dish to try. I'll have to take your word on the guinness... More

Thank you for your great review, It is a team effort from behind the scenes to front of house, all the staff play a part. Fresh Pollack is hard to beat, it's great beer battered as it adds to the flavour and it is plentiful around Erris. We hope you get a chance to return and sample more. More

Had to wait nearly an hour for 3 main courses. Not good with a 9 year old child. Staff didn't really care. Food was OK but we would have eaten anything after the wait. Had to ask for the bill twice before it came. Won't be back.

Dear John, I am apologise about the wait, the kitchen were under a lot of pressure with the opening of the new lounge, we were not expecting it to get so busy so fast, but it has been full every evening this week and we have struggled to adjust. We have already taken action to reduce the pressure on the... More

Visited Talbots recently on a number of occasions with my wife and we had the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. Firstly......the Guinness is really good and the staff are very friendly and helpful, even when they can be run off their feet. The food part of the bar can get very busy at times.

Thank you for your review, This is a very stressful time for staff where the number of guests swell for a few weeks, we all want to offer the same great service which can be extra difficult when large numbers all arrive in together.
