We chose this restaurant after walking through Galway and hearing some locals chatting in front of us. We followed them inside thinking they would know best.Best, indeed. Service was fantastic-very personalble. They use a a team service approach, which meant many people came by to check on us, check if we had ordered, etc. Very real people serving great food... More

Large portions and a variety of dishes available at this pub/restaurant. Lots of room and a large staff to serve. Variety of beers on draft. Shepherd's Pie was very good. They have a kids menu. Kids enjoyed the chicken goujons. Would visit again.

This place is huge but feels cozy, which is great since it rains every day. The bbq chicken wings were very good as was the ham and cheese sandwich. The wait staff hustles around is is very attentive. Nice selection of beers and a full bar. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful old hardwood throughout, very attentive wait staff. It was a busy weekend as it was Maundy Thursday. We walked in without a reservation and were seated almost immediately. (It's a large place). The Irish stew was very good - tender chunks of meat. My husband had the sheperd's pie and he loved it.

Great food, great beers, lots of room, nice staff. This place is huge, it keeps on going, and going, and then there's also a second floor. Great atmosphere too.

Many vegetarian options, even vegan. Great quality fish and everything done with care. Being a pub on High Street we were very impressed with the food. The staff was helpful and friendly.
