Small but high quality artisan food. Local produce and excellent selection of wine. We were both really pleased with the food and price also.

Stopped here for lunch yesterday. It doesn't look like much from the outside but choices are limited in Loughrea on a Sunday afternoon so we decided to try it. And we were very glad we did. One person had the set lunch & the rest...More
