Really enjoyed it. Reasonable value for money. Huge portions of food and decent wine list. Service was pleasant but a bit ropey. Typical local menu. Would definitely go back but disappointed that I couldn’t get a pint of Guinness.

We had a meal in this restaurant on two evenings during our stay here. Sean the Chef cooked such a gorgeous steak I had another the following night. All the food served was freshly prepared and presented well. Very reasonable prices too.
