I had the seafood chowder and my husband had shrimp. The meals were delicious. Service was good. The place gets pretty crowded so try to go early.

We always try to eat here when we are down that direction.
We did have a bit of a wait as it was Easter and the place was rammed. Once again though the place does not fail to deliver!! 7 of us were in for dinner and the food and service was once again top notch!!
We are already plannning our next trip down as we have another voucher to use

Great food with a great pint. Good choice of food and a good drink of what ever you like since this is a pub also. Great place to visit around special days. For example halloween. They really push the boat out in here for decorations.

It came recommed by tripadviser & our landlady in our b&b. & i have to say not disappoiteddon't normally have bugers when eating out but did on this occasion as i was hungery. & whatever sauce was in the scooner buger was unreal. Really enjoyed it. Had lovely wine & my husband had a pint of beer. And they made sure our 3 kids were looked after 1st as well which is always a plus when eating out. If i had to suggest 1 thing, that would maybe something like colouring books & crayons to keep the kids happy as there were some other kids who wudn't sit still . I know our wud have to if we stayed longer.

Visited on a Wednesday evening and place was full to the rim . Had to wait for half hour for table but didn't mind as had drink at the bar . The food was really tasty and filling . I had fish cakes and the battered cod , my son had the wings and stir fry. The staff are really lovely and helpful . I used a pigsback voucher that was €30 for €50 worth of food . Very good value so bought another voucher . Definitely recommend .
