We were in Cavan for a football match and found the Big Apple by chancel Essentially the Big Apple is a very good pub with a better than average pub restaurant. There is much to like here.

Thanks for your comments regarding your visit to my restaurant. Whilst my team and I appreciate feedback, we strongly disagree with your description of our lunch menus regarding the selection of dishes to choose from.

We popped in for lunch yesterday with our 1 and 3yr old. Servers knowledgeable when we enquired about ciders, and it was no bother to bring the children's meals before our own. Very pleased with the bill, we all had a meal, with coffee and puddings for under €50. No issue with us substituting items to suit our tastes. Clean,... More

Visited this place 2x during summer 2016. Beef with Guinness is sauce is really something very special. Another night the obligatory steak sandwich was tried with Argentinian red wine. Also vegetarians can find something. Excellent food.
