    We were early in the restaurant- the food we had fish and chips was excellent, and the service very good. Had desserts as well. With one pint bill was €57.50 very good value

    The food was decent and the table was comfortable and the service was fine. We booked dinner through Open Table and when we arrived we were told that the restaurant was closed but we could eat in the pub from the pub menu, which we did. There seemed to be a disconnect between making a booking for the restaurant on Open Table and the actual restaurant being available for booking, which was a bit disappointing. The pub food was good and the menu was fine for pub food. Just not what we thought we had booked. So this is not really a restaurant review as we didn't eat in the restaurant we had booked.

    The service and the food has been great. We enjoyed our dinner. The only little"minus" was, that the windos could not be closed entirely, so it was a bit chilly.

    I have to say that I ennoyed the scallops immensely. Very fresh and absolutely perfectly presented with a black pudding and potato accompaniment.
