I have been here twice and the experience turned my stomach both times I’m afraid. Very greasy, overcooked, hospital style food. Simple food doesn’t bother me but this didn’t taste fresh. My wife was equally disappointed and we both left over half our main courses...More

Very nice pub, worth calling into. It has a smoking area out back. Staff are friendly and the place is clean.

Bring the family for dinner here quite often and it's always top notch. Great menu and it always results in empty plates. The burger is class. Well worth a visit.

Ate at the courtyard tables during the recent Leinster Fleadh (traditional music festival) in Ballymahon. Very friendly staff, good quality food, comfortable surroundings & reasonable prices. I would go there again and can recommend this house.
