First time there today.. Had the steak sandwich It was brilliant.. Just a bit pricy for a lunch But for me it was my first time so didn't mind.. Nothing on the. Menu under 14 euro.. From what I cud see.. So that's a bit of a problem But would recommend this place..

Our server Tina overheard it was my birthday and took it upon herself to bring out a complimentary dessert complete with a birthday candle! As we were travelling in Ireland for the first time, this simple and sweet gesture made me feel at home. It... More

Loved dining here. Loved it so much we went back again. Typical rural pub dining with a nice variety of meals in comfort and a good ambiance. Staff were very friendly in a country sort of way. If you're staying at the Coach House, as we were, easily the best place to eat.
