I hate to give establishments poor reviews, but I was here last week, and the food was really poor, veg underdone and tasteless, turkey bland, carrotts awful, gravy tasteless. Staff seemed nice, I thought the food was always good here, not great but good, now its just awful. please don't let this place go downhill.

Staying in Tuam for two nights on business, this restaurant was recommended to me by a local and I'm glad I dined there. I had the smoked chicken starter and the cajun salmon, both ample portions and delicious. Price and service both good. However, I was cold going in and cold coming out....such a pity, it really took from the... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised, nice comfortable premises with character and charm food and service were excellent I will be returning again , if you are hungry this is the place to go as portions were big hardly left any room for dessert.

The food in this restaurant is as good and the prices are what one would expect. What takes from this restaurant is the service and the tone set by management. Unfortunately this takes from the ambience and the overall sense of enjoyment of a night out. More needs tonne done to create a welcoming atmosphere with a sense that the... More

We were just passing through Tuam and fancied something to eat, so we stopped here by chance. My wife just had a smoked chicken starter as she wasn't very hungry and I had the best surf and turf I've had in years. The service was really friendly and relaxed.
