Muscles were spectacular. Filet mignon absolutely yummy, and the creme brule a delight. Shortbread and raspberry sorbet delicious. Service could not have been more attentive or polite. We'll be back. Thank you!

Absolute extortionate prices for mediocre food. €32.95 for a fillet steak that should have been nicer presented- Instead it was slapped up with a few sautéed onions on top. €28.95 for a steak sandwich- Ridiculous. Service was abysmal. Sides had to be reheated and reminded...of. Extremely disappointed as we returned having had many nice meals there. We will not be back.More

Top class food as always. Fillet steak is one of the best around the area. Plentiful portion sizes, you won’t go hungry. Dessert is always worth it!

Food lovely but very expensive Had Sunday lunch here. Would have liked chicken wings but a starter of wings was €11.95. Outrageous price for a starter. Waited 1 hour to be served. Just had 2 main courses. €36 a bit steep for 2 Sunday lunches...in a pub. Wouldn't go back because of prices and long wait.More

They have a resident dog, not sure if they'll allow dogs outside in the smoking area or not. Don't think they'll have them inside. Ring and ask
