We were welcomed by a helpful and hospitable barman who even found us a Donegal craft beer that we liked. We all chose the Irish stew which was on offer on the board. It was excellent.

We stopped in on a Saturday for dinner. The food was good and so was the service. I’d recommend this to someone visiting the area for a place to sit and relax for a while.
