Fabulous position overlooking the bay. The crab sandwich was an absolute dream - that first bite was one of the highlights of my holiday! It's basic food, no frills or great presentation but who needs it with crab that fresh.

The soup of the day was courgette and parmesan served with home made brown bread. It was perfect. The overall feel of the place is very relaxed. Excellent half pint of Murphys.

This pub still has the best seafood chowder in the world. It is better than excellent. If you are within 50k of this pub then go there. Oh, the rest of the grub's great as well.

This is a truly great pub, with a very friendly landlord and excellent food and beer. The views from the pub are exquisite and in the winter the lounge fire is a great comfort

We returned three times to O'Sullivan's Bar during our fortnight's holiday. I think that says it all! The sandwiches were wonderful - 5 layers of smoked salmon in mine and my husband said the beef was superb. It was straight off a joint of meat...More
