We stopped here for lunch with a group traveling through Ireland. The beef and Guinness stew was the best of all the ones we tried, and that’s saying a lot. The restaurant was clean and is mostly frequented by locals. It’s not much to look at on the outside, but is definitely a good place for a meal.

We were in athlone for the night and tried out this place. The main course was so nice. I had the steak on a stone special which was delish. I got soup to start wich was cold and was changed straight away. My partners nachos were so tasty. The value for money was great. Staff werwnt so friendly but if i was down in athlone if eat here again for the steak

Recently visited the bar and had two drinks prior to ordering food. At 8.30 pm I asked for a menu and the waiter spoke to a guy behind the bar. I was then informed that last orders were 8.30 pm and I could not place an order. What a way to treat visitors to Athlone. I had already spent money in the bar and didn't know that last for food was 8.30Pm. How can orders stop so early. Do you not want the buisness from Tourists?I will certainly not be returning.

We ate here with family and the food was very good. The service was also excellent and the staff are very friendly. It is a busy pub with a great atmosphere. The upstairs is very nice to dine in.
