Friendly atmosphere and staff - a quiet lunch with my son sharing 12 oysters and a couple of steak sandwiches - over a couple of pints of Guinness - simple classic fare. Recommend.

Food is great. Staff are friendly and warming and so too are bouncers. The Loft has the best cocktails but alcohol over priced, for a younger crowd but olders would enjoy too.l

Good for a night out, music is cheesy but fun. Tiny club though, felt like someone's living room! Only one female toilet which isn't good. Staff were friendly though.

Nice lunch of oysters and Guinness. Would recommend without hesitation. Great staff, good food and quick service. Stayed in the area two years ago and they even sent a car to pick us up for dinner. An easy place to linger with the log fire...More

Hiya, I am planning a hen party for Saturday 22nd July in Carlingford and was wondering if you offer a 2 course set menu perhaps with a drink? If so could you send this through to me with a proposed cost please? Thanks Megan
