We arrived here after a recommendation from a local - and were very happy we stopped here for supper and of course a few Guinness and other assorted local brews. Food was tasty and plentiful and service was friendly and courteous.

A big disappointment. Because of the good recommendations found here and on the Internet we decided to have a quick dinner here. Expectations weren't high, but we'd be okay with decent pub food. But everything was bland, without taste, fatty, quick heated pre-cooked meals. The atmosphere is nice enough, waiting friendly and speedily, and the beers are fine. But well,... More

I had a pint and the sea food pasta during the week in Clancys and I was very disappointed. It basically consisted of haddock in a creamy sauce with pasta. No prawns, or any other variety of fish.this was false advertising as according to the description in the menu it had a selection of locally sourced fresh fish. I also... More

We do the occasional lunch here and have revisited since their last makeover. We like to go there if we're particularly hungry! Their menu is extensive and with something for all tastes. We find that service here can be a little hit and miss and sense that there is an absence of proprietorial concern during the lunch period. Food is... More

Went for a beer.... In the centre good for a quick beer seemed like was full of locals. Probably not my choice for food as it seemed very bistro like. And there are plenty of other choices. Go for the beer eat elsewhere

You have omitted the superb Quinlan's Fish restaurant. Located in Princes Street, it is outstandingly good. All fresh fish and simply delicious.
