I have been here twice and the experience turned my stomach both times I’m afraid. Very greasy, overcooked, hospital style food. Simple food doesn’t bother me but this didn’t taste fresh. My wife was equally disappointed and we both left over half our main courses...More

Bring the family for dinner here quite often and it's always top notch. Great menu and it always results in empty plates. The burger is class. Well worth a visit.

Ate at the courtyard tables during the recent Leinster Fleadh (traditional music festival) in Ballymahon. Very friendly staff, good quality food, comfortable surroundings & reasonable prices. I would go there again and can recommend this house.

We stayed here during a visit to Ballymahon while attending a wedding. I can honestly say we were taken aback by the level of friendliness and excellent service we received while staying here. I think these guys should set about training other service providers! From...More

There's a beer garden outside with canopy and seating and the staff are very accommodating. Inside would not be suitable as it's a very busy pub with small cost nooks. Plus not everyone is comfortable with dogs. I'm a dog... More
