Received a warm welcome as soon as we walked in the door and every staff member we met was just as friendly as the last! Great options to choose from on the menu and we had small kids with us so were told anything on the menu could also be served as a baby portion which was very helpful. Every... More

Had lunch here recently on the back of the reviews here and it was great. Had the steak bap with chips and aioli, it was delicious. Had a lovely seat next to the open fire. The fudge delights were a tasty treat afterwards with our coffees. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I went for lunch today on the TripAdvisor recommendations. Long wait for a table, but the staff were nice. Very small lunch menu, but sometimes that is not a bad thing. We both had the west Cork steak bap with chorizo onions, chips and aioli. My wife loved hers, but personally I found the chips overdone and... More

I can not recommend this pub enough if you're in the area, I visit Scannells every time I'm in clonakilty. The bar is great fun all year round: have a beer in the fabulous garden in summer, or a coffee by the fire in winter. The food is delicious with all allergies and requirements catered for. The haddock pakoras or... More

We shared 3 main courses yesterday because really we wanted everything ( there were 2 of us) Slow cooked beef ,... More

Nice atmosphere. Delicious lunch menu with good locally sourced ingredients. Friendly staff and prompt service. I would visit again. Sandwiches are very good value but I do think more salad options would be nice. Perhaps one or two at a mid price option as opposed to a large main.

Thank deeom
