Had a meal in here over the weekend with some friends. The food was gorgeous. Have eaten here quite a few times for carvey (which is good too) but the restaurant at night beats it hands down. Service was very good. Staff very friendly.

I've been here several times and I've always had a great experience. My most recent visit was for a friend's birthday. I had the brie for starter and the prawn stir-fry for main. The stir-fry came with a generous portion of good-sized prawns. You will not leave the Fiddler's hungry, that's for sure. The staff were great and they even took a photograph which was then printed out for us before we left. That was a really nice touch in my opinion. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant for its value, service and quality of the food.

Stopped in 3 times during our visit. The staff was great and personable, making us want to come back again. Food and drink were delicious and enjoyable after days of traveling. Definitely recommend to anyone outside of town looking for a good bite and a quick drink!

Nice décor, friendly staff and very nice food. I chose the sticky wings to start followed by surf n turf and a pint of Guinness (always good in Ireland). Both starter and main were well cooked, well presented and tasted great.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Lovely Saturday lunchtime carvery. Main course with tea or coffee for €11.00 from carvery. Lady on till and serving us was very nice as were all the staff from the young lady doing the carvery to the girls going around checking that everything was ok. Asked for peppermint tea which they had. Very impressed overall. Food was very good and great choice.
