The pub is very quaint. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was average. The prices are standard. Plenty of old photos and amusing sayings on the walls. There is music provided and plenty of craic. Nice place to visit.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to the Burren from Dublin. Just a short distance off the M7. Very tasty food with a cozy pub atmosphere. We enjoyed pate, salmon and venison. We were impressed at how well prepared everything was and the flavors on each plate were well matched. Very friendly staff. The owner tipped us off to... More

My wife and I popped in for dinner after a recommendation from our hosts at Bayly Farm, a nearby B&B. Our expectation was for typical Irish pub food and boy were we pleasantly surprised. The menu is far more upscale than we expected and, as avowed foodies, we were delighted. My wife had a Pork Shoulder dish which we shoved... More

There's nothing I enjoy more than a stock heavy chowder. Too often with chowder it can be a lazy few random lumps of fish in a load of cream. This struck a great balance - it really did - lovely rich stock laced through the entire thing. Also the fish was in smaller parts and it was all richly alchemized.... More

Went there on a Saturday evening on a recommendation and I must say that it was a great experience. We were warmly welcomed by the lady owner who certainly has the mojo for the business.

Visited for lunch with work colleagues. Starters were all top class, tasty and well presented. Main course was pretty bad. Maybe my choice was poor. I had salmon with rice, poppadum and a korma style sauce. The combination did not work. The salmon was tasteless. The desserts looked good and by all accounts were good, portions were generous. The service... More

A lovely pub style restaurant with and early menu < 7.30 pm with excellent food in generous portions. Recommend the pork fillet black pudding roulade and the mushroom stuffed chicken breast! There is also an a la carte menu and a good wine selection to complement the food. Just outside Nenagh on the Cloughjordan road.
