Average food that unfortunately did not live up to its reputation. Quite bland, especially the gluten free option ordered. Poor value for money given the quality served.

Established since 1963 we are steeped in tradition and full of character, and delighted to have celebrated 50 Years in business in 2013. Quaint and cosy with our open fire, slate floor and homely atmosphere our popularity is understandable.

We offer a wide range of coffees, beer and our extensive menus begin at 8.30Am until 8.30Pm. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week we cater for all food lovers. But by night when the lights are turned down, Bobby Byrne's has a private room which can turn into a great party venue. We can cater for groups from 20 to 120 with options of finger food to succulent bbq's.
