This is a well run and welcoming venue The food was great and the atmosphere relaxed and yet professional. The staff couldn't be more helpful and made a big fuss of the birthday singing etc

Okay. First of all, and I cannot be as clear about this as is required for the occasion, this place made us stupid. The wife and I are travelling Ireland on our honeymoon, and to be frank we were getting tired of pub food. Almost on a whim we decided to try this place out (as recommended by our B&B... More

a group of four of us went for dinner here last Saturday. We were seated quickly and served almost straight away. We ordered burgers and salmon all of which were very tasty and of good size. Dessert also was great (although there was no chocolate brownie on the menu) all in all I will most definitely return and recommend this... More

We had a family lunch in Clarkes recently. There were sixteen of us. I'm glad we pre-booked because this is a very busy restaurant. We had booked for a smaller number but this increased on the day. No fuss. They took care of the change without any problem. Because it was a Sunday and they had Valentine's customers in advance... More

The staff were top class, we were greeted and given a choice of table. The waiter went over the menu and the clarified the dishes of the day. We took a while to choose from the menu because it was so mouth watering. It had unusual items, such as sea asparagus. A very high standard of ingredients. A lovely, delicious... More
