I visited O'Reillys last year and the staff were friendly and happy to help. When I returned last week I was really disappointed as from arrival it seemed like our presence was a nuisance to the waitress serving us. The food was OK but my...order was wrong. I tried to get the waitresses attention to let her know but she seemed more preoccupied by her phone and not once did anyone else including the manager who also served us check on us so I just paid for my meal and left. I will not be returning.More

Had a horrible case of food poisoning from the seafood chowder. Do not recommend. I had read the "raw chicken" review on here, too...

My husband and I went to o reillys for dinner and drinks .We had to ask 3 separate servers for our drinks.It was only a pint and a diet coke.Then after 25 minutes we had to ask was our soup coming. AFTER 50 minutes our...main course came.My husband cut into his chicken goujon and it was raw.I don't mean pink I mean raw.I complained to a member of staff and walked out.I will never go there again. There was plenty of staff on but they completely messed up other people's orders.The couple beside us left as well as the staff got their order wrong. it's a pity it's gone downhill it was a nice place for bar food and drinksMore

I arrived here with high expectations for the place. On first arrival was seated and greeted by the staff. As the day went on service became slow and staff were on the “unbothered” side of doing things. What bothered me most was a tall dark...haired and dark featured young man. Dylan I believe his name was as I had overheard the others speaking to him while trying to get a pint, as I walked up to the counter I asked this barman for a pint he ignored me rudely and said “yeah I’ll be back” he proceeds to leave the bar for 10-15 min and never came back. As I waited up at the bar until he came back he stood behind the bar counter and had more interest in talking to one of the waiting staff,and seemed more interested in his phone,instead of serving a loyal customer a pint which should only take 2 minutes if even! Overall o reillys was always a place I had always loved coming to,but I’m not sure if it’s the new untrained staff that have run the place down or maybe he was just having a bad day but overall, I’m very disappointed by the service I received in o reillys. Will not be going back and don’t recommend anyone else too with the service and treatment from staff recently.More

We stopped for a drink here on our way home from a walk. The service was extremely slow and there were staff having around not doing much. However, the main reason for my poor rating was that I was charged for a drink I had...not ordered. The barman held up the electronic payment machine well above my head hoping I would not look at the amount. When I asked to see he showed me and I queried the amount. No apology just said he would refund me for the third drink which he did in cash. Very disappointing. I wondered how often this happens.More

If you like chunky chowder then you’ll love carrots! It was perfect absolutely no fish whatsoever but plenty of carrots and the carrots look like salmon but it’s just tender carrots. So if you hate fish and love carrots you’ll probably like this chowder because...there’s no fish at all in the chowder.More

Great modern gastro bar. Got the burger and chips and was exceptional alot of flavour going through. We also got desert cheese cake of the day being Baily's was very nice not too sweet. All in all very well priced.
