It was surprisingly difficult to find child friendly places to eat in Bantry. Then I remembered a place I visited with family over five years back and went back to check it out.

I love coming here because the service is always fast and friendly. The food is always great from breakfast to lunch and my son loves the brownies 😁👍

Found the place crowded with locals, staff very friendly. Found both entree ok, a bit bland. Both dishes were missing a little something, we had the Irish Stew and Clam Chowder.

Had lunch here and just had a main course of southern fried chicken, it was exactly what it said it would be, the only thing I did not like was the pool of gravy on the plate (maybe customers should be asked if they want the sauce served on the side) which made the chips soggy but as I said...

We both ordered their regular breakfast, which came with sausages, rashers, beans, black and white pudding, a fried egg, toast and orange juice. It was all good quality and well cooked. I also ordered a mug of tea but... More
