Fun, quirky spot ideal for a cheap pizza. They can serve you pints from the bar next door or you can order wine from their own menu. It could maybe be a bit cleaner, but the pizzas were excellent and we found the place fun,...with friendly and helpful staff.More

Visited with my boyfriend while in Donegal. Absolutely amazing atmosphere and the pizzas were absolutely outstanding. Make sure to get a garlic dip on the side!! The pints in Patsy Dans were unreal too so make sure to get a drink while you’re there

Lovely pizza, really nice. Was able to eat it in Patsy Dans while having a couple of drinks. Would definitely come back for another pizza.

We booked via Facebook and felt the staff were friendly and helpful. Decor and atmosphere was great, well spaced out but you could *almost* forget about Covid, with the cool vibe there. Goats cheese green pizza was delicious, washed down by a bottle of kinnegar...from the bar next door. Heaven. Well worth a visit.More

Tried to book online, there’s no website. Tried to call, there’s no phone number. Tried to instagram mail, no reply. Drove an hour to try walk on and they’re now closed on Wednesdays... Really disappointed with the experience as I’ve heard such great reviews. Please...set up a website or at least list a phone numberMore

We booked online via Facebook for the 5pm sitting. On arrival we were explained the new rules regarding Covid, nothing onerous. We were given a great table under cover (it rained during our time there, but we felt no drops) opposite the wood fired pizza...oven - so could see all the action! the drinks are served from the pub next door - all very efficiently The pizzas we had were just perfect = great bases and toppings - not a fault. the music playing really added to the rustic and relaxed atmosphere One of the highlights from our week visiting the areaMore

Ate here with my family, the pizzas and breads etc were honestly delicious! Really! But my 'experience' was underwhelming b/c the staff spent so long preaching abt the rules, we ate in the shed which was also pretty cold. Door had to be open 'due...to covid' etc. The food was fab, but I won't rush back.More

Rusty oven was full but they suggested going into Patsy Dan's and you get the same menu. It was mental busy so you had to wait 90 mins for pizza so theh suggested garlic bread while you wait. Shor if was the size of a...pizza. The nicest one ever. But I loved the old pub with an old black telephone fiddle old punt nots on the wall. Full of character this place is. The rusty oven is ag the back of it and you order your pizza there and try accept cash only. Bar takes contactless. Staff were really great in both places. One guy not wearing a mask which is a shame.More

We tried to go here tonight, I understand that every place is busy but the guy on the door must be the rudest person in Dunfanaghy. All we asked was if there was a table free and we were treated like criminals. I'll never set...foot in this place again.More

Hi, sorry to hear that. The pub is a separate business with its own staff. This review is not for us can you remove it please. We have a dedicated female greeter / seater and our restaurant is accessed from the rear of the building....More

Hi if I remember correctly you can turn up but if more than six you can book. Either way you’re bound to enjoy it. A very relaxed atmosphere.
