Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visiting the area with friends we were recommended this restaurant for our evening meal. The decor is traditional and cozy and service was excellent. Starters were very generous and tasty. We all made different choices for our main course and everything was enjoyed along with...a few glasses of wine. I would certainly return again if we are in the area.More

Couldn't ask for a better experience. Sharon behind the bar and serving us was just delightful. Great sense of humor and made the afternoon wonderful. Food was exceptional. Perfect small town hospitality in Ireland.

A fabulous comfortable setting for all the family to enjoy. My husband and I went out for dinner with our 18 month old. He was very welcome in the restaurant and staff were very friendly to us all. There was a huge range of starters,...main courses, desserts and drinks to choose from. The food was mouth watering. We will definitely be going back.More

The food and atmosphere are both brilliant and the staff so welcoming. It is advisable to book Friday and Saturday as it is very popular.
