Went here based on TA reviews. Delicious meal; fresh ingredients & good portions. Went with another couple & we all enjoyed our entrees: cottage pie, vegetable pasta, fish & chips & chicken. Worth spending the money. Good value.

This is a Letterkenny owned family run restaurant opened in 1999.

The Wine list is ever growing and includes something for all tastes with over 90 different wines.
