Location and contact

We are a relaxed, friendly and informative stop on the Wild Atlantic Way. We serve home cooked food from local produce and we draw from the Italian, American and traditional Irish experiences. We serve excellent, home made burgers made from prime Irish beef along with home made traditional chips, fresh fish 'n chips, curries, casseroles and other specials. We are best known for our famous home made pizzas. We make our own dough, every day and we only use natural products, no additives or dough conditioners. We do a great range of interesting salads in summer and we have an excellent wine list, well tested at this stage! For dessert, or a treat at any time of the day, we have a fabulous range

I went into the yard recently. The staff were so badly trained. They were rude and didn't seem to care about the customer. Food was good when it eventually arrived. So slow !!!!!!!!!!!

The staff were excellent and managed to cater to my many food allergies right at the height of their busy time. Didn’t have to wait long and the pizza was delicious. Big thanks to Rosie and her staff, will be back again!
