Food was so lovely! Mash was so good. Steak was so perfectly done. Service was excellent, especially by Edel B. She was so helpful, friendly and a bit of fun.

We went to Galway having nothing booked and stumbled across this gem of a pub. It is well worth queuing for and we were not waiting long. Edel our waitress was so friendly and knew all about all the different drinks available. Edel told us...about the cocktail tree which we could not resist. We also had food which was 5 star. Ger the manager was very welcoming and although we were outside there was a heater which kept us warm and we were well sheltered from the rain. We can’t fault this pub and it is a must when going to Galway.More

No complaints at all, the staff are amazing, food is incredible and the cocktails are unreal. We really enjoyed our time here despite the fact that it was outdoor and a bit cold. The staff alone would make you want to go back.

First pint since the first lockdown and we had a perfect meal and some pints. Excellent staff, atmosphere, service and food options. Can’t wait for them to be allowed reopen. See you in the summer please God.

Rang to make a booking a man answered who was very rude. I asked if it was possible to book a table on the 20th . All i got as an answer was no nothing available bye. There was no such thing as what time...suit if there is a cancellation or a more professional way of talking to a potential customer. Very disappointed.More

if you have a large group, i'd recommend calling ahead and they'll hold tables close together for you & make sure the staff checks in on you often. They're very flexible though, and I agree with the other patrons, if you... More
