                                                          I had the stir fry with prawns and my wife had the salmon, it was outstanding

                                                          We had a lovely dinner here on Saturday evening, we arrived early so we could have a few drinks, it wasn't a problem as our table was ready. The staff was pleasant and efficient, our food was tasty and hot. we both had starters and steak mains, which I must say were the nicest steaks we have had in a long time. one thing to note, if you don't like mayo/garlic dressing ask for it not to be on the steak, I personally was very disappointed my lovely steak came out covered in salad leaves and this white garlic dressing drizzled all over it, it wasn't stated on the menu it was coming out like this, and it was a shame to cover up the lovely steak. Other than that it was a lovely dining experience and very good value for money. We will be back.

                                                          If you're looking for great quality food and a service next to none. Cookes is the place to go. I don't normally give reviews unless the business is very bad or very good. But I'd have to recommend Cookes of Carragh.

                                                          Our first time in Cooke’s but definitely won’t be our last! Had a great experience - the staff/owner were all very accommodating and friendly, amazing selection of food on the menu and the atmosphere and service was perfect. Not to mention the value for money - creme brûlée for €7!! For sure some of the best Guinness around. Would 100% recommend for families or groups of friends :)

                                                          Everything was great. The prawns in the starter were a little over done and tough. Otherwise the food was exceptional and will be back again. Great service and great atmosphere

                                                          Service was quite bad, waitress a bit rude when asking for order and when clearing our table had dirty plates from another table in her hand. Also wore her mask down under her nose. Not the usual standard of Cookes. Gentleman who seated us was outstanding and very friendly. Food was only OK. Dessert was amazing. Can't say I'd be in a hurry to return.

                                                          Booked Gastro Lounge, was seated in The Cabin. They offered to change seating but advised l would in the draft of a door!! I did ask for a warm section of the lounge when booking so this didn't make sense. Lovely pub & will return.

                                                          Very cosy atmosphere and lovely decor, food was good, Brie was a bit bland, felt the crumb could have been a bit more flavoursome and the prawn stir fry was tasty but could have been warmer, it’s not that it was cold, it was just not warm enough to stay warm in the time it took to eat it, slightly over priced. Food came out very very quick. Nice selection of cocktails and staff were very good. Will give it another outing and make final decision
