My wife and I spent a quiet hour in Guy's again this year. Consistently good chowder every year with nice brown bread. My wife had the crab salad and it too was very good. On top we both had some Guinness to while away the time while my wife wrote some postcards and posted them across the road at the... More

We wandered in here for lunch 2 adults and 3 kids. Excellent fresh fish and chip, and also pizzas. The kids menu are superb just a slightly smaller version of the adults. We'll be back. Service was friendly and attentive despite a busy lunch trade. Well worth checking out.

Great food and very friendly staff. Nice atmosphere and kids happy with experience! Would visit this again also. ..and to be fair haven't had a bad meal in Cliffden. Only problem is they're all so popular at same time you need to get in early!

Our lunch of soups and sandwiches were just average pub food. We picked it since at the time it was #1 on trip advisor but we had better food at other pubs.

We, two adults and two teenagers, had a wonderful meal in this lovely restaurant. The staff were pleasant, very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. Highly recommended this wonderful pub and restaurant. Although it was very busy we didn't feel under pressure or rushed. Well done

It was a nice evening with good food and nice staff, unfortunately we had to wait but with a drink at the bar it wasn't that bad. Be there before 7pm to avoid waiting. You can look forward to a nice evening but don't expect something outstanding or spectacular, it is just a normal restaurant with very good food.
