We dined here recently, six of us, adults and children. It was midweek and there was a good choice of food on offer and the dishes that we choose were good. Presentation was very good. The choice of desserts was probably the best part as you got to choose from the Bakery next door.

I visited this place for lunch and ordered Cajun Chicken burger. I read decent reviews about this place but honestly I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary and then...came my Cajun Chicken burger served on a wooden platter.

We went to this restaurant on Halloween night & were not disappointed. The service was friendly & the food was excellent. My husband had a delicious hamburger & I had the Irish classic bacon & cabbage. It was by far the best Irish dish I had on my whole trip. The desserts were wonderful, too. Can't recommend it enough!

This is housed in an old barracks right in the center of town. We had a light lunch there and enjoyed some of the home made pastry. It appeared to be very popular with locals.

We visited The Barracks to get a cup of coffee. While enjoying the coffee and conversation, we were watching the food coming out of the kitchen. It all looked so good that we returned later for dinner, we were not disappointed!! Everything was delicious!! The salmon was cooked perfectly and the beef in the pie was so tender.
