We visited this little establishment for a bar meal and it was exactly what we were looking for and expecting, it certainly did not disappoint. Not only were the staff friendly but the locals and workies were also friendly and exactly what you would expect...More

The food is basic pub grub and the quality is pretty average, but this is a great pub and the service from the barmaids was fantastic - they were so friendly and welcoming to us after running 35 miles! Good spot.

Good food, but quite a bit of a wait which wouldn't have been an issue if we were warned beforehand - we were not. Limited selection of vegetarian options (burger or lasagne) and beers. WiFi not working, but it was busy.

Visited once quite some time ago with friends, after spending a day in the Mamores. Was busy with good atmosphere. Seemed a reasonable place.

Feels very much like a locals pub, choice on menu was good and the food was ok. Price is very reasonable and overall worth it. Service was efficient, no complaints, but not somewhere I would go on a special occasion.

Great combination of a local's pub watching Sunday afternoon footie and a few beers and walkers. Could have been a bit of an awkward combo but was very welcoming and well mixed. Pool table, juke box, friendly to dogs. And liverpool won. Cat's pyjamas.

Pooped in for a few drinks with friends and the staff were nice enough and it was clean, just a little pricey for what it is and very dated decor.

The Tailrace is definitely dog friendly. I take my Westie and Yorkie and they are made welcome. The owner has two little dogs. There is a sign stating dogs welcome.🐶
