    We had a great evening with good food and drink, in a great atmosphere. The only small issue was that the kale on the duck special pizza was burnt and when this was brought to the attention of the waitress she did not respond in any way.

    We love visiting the Rusty Oven. It is at the back of Patsy Dan's pub. There is a small indoor area (the "Shed") but mostly outdoor covered seating. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is energetic. The garlic bread with melted butter is to die for and the pizzas, made and cooked in front of you are divine. The pizzas and breads are wood fired, sourdough and are thin. Best pizza/garlic bread/food in Ireland. A decent wine list also. The staff are very friendly and there is a great buzz. A must visit if you are within 50 miles of Dunfanaghy. The Rusty Oven should be in the Blue Book!🙂

    A lovely place to eat with helpful staff and great ambiance. Well worth the drive to get there. It was busy when we arrived so we were glad we reserved a table. The only slight criticism would be that it was not the most obvious place to find, so maybe some street signage for those unfamiliar with Dunfanaghy. Also note that they do not take card but I saw some customers order using the app.

    We drove for 2 hours just to have one of The Rusty Oven’s amazing pizzas! My daughter got her GCSE results and she wanted to go back to The Rusty oven to celebrate. We tried the starters as well and they were amazing too.
