As,my wife has coeliac and they have excelled in that category also. Part of the reason we love going...back to Carndonagh is to sample more fantastic food keep up the great workMore

We arrived on Sunday 20th March around 1:30 it was extremely busy, we were a party of four one in a very large wheelchair, the staff moved bookings around to different areas and kindly accommodated us at the table closest to the ladies which is...the only table suitable for my brother in laws chair. The food was delicious 😋 and very good value .. service 10/10 really friendly and a great atmosphere.More

Love this place for food! Such a cozy atmosphere and the staff are great with young kids. They go above and beyond to meet the needs of the family. The Saturday nights are so lively and the music is great for a night out without...the kids 🤩More

I visited on Saturday Evening for Dinner with Family and it was just perfect. The food was excellent, as well as the service! We were seated on a lovely table by the fireside. We intended to just have dinner but the dessert menu sounded too...good not to try - I opted for the baked chocolate chip cookie dough!! We had a great evening! 5* Overall!! We will definitely return when in the area again.More

We didn't have a table booked for a party of 4 and my first impressions are very good after being told they had a table for us so fast. That didn't last long as the table was made for 2 people and giving us the...next tables drinks very unorganised when our food came out I had to put my plate on my lap and eat from my lap. We had to send our undercooked chips back when we asked for the Bill they had charged for two extra drinks when we explained we only had 5 cokes not 7 we told they were brought to the table I had to mention the mix-up earlier on with the drinks then they left us sitting there for 20 mins and people look over at us I was never so embarrassed even the next table to us said they didn't like the way we were treated I wouldn't write the review otherwise not a place for meMore

Whenever my 9 year old son and I decide to treat ourselves to a high quality meal, we head to simpsons where we know we will be taken care of with all covid concerns addressed. The food is diverse, the menu changes, always delicious and...served quickly by smiling professional and very helpful staff. Throughout all the changes in the past 18 months, my son (who refuses to eat anywhere else) and I always feel like we are coming home when we go to the cosy lounge and get comfortable. Immaculate facilities and super fast service, always. Family atmosphere.More

Super lunch. The tastiest Club Sandwich I’ve had in years. Service was top notch too. Really busy for a Monday, clearly a popular place.
