We popped in for a drink with athought to eat their later. The food looked great and the selection of bers and whiskeys was impressive. There was a manager/maitre d type who seemed very on the ball, finding people seats and making sure they were being served. I suspect he was the owner. You can't beat that; when the owner... More

We had no booking and the place was packed but staff we very friendly, efficient and welcoming. The menu had an excellent variety and the food was delicious. We weren't guaranteed a table but we were happy to dine at the bar if needed. Luckily a cosy snug came free and although we felt we were rushed towards the end... More

I ordered duck and sweet chilli sausages - yum. Now, they were yum, BUT they could just as easily have been pork - I almost asked but didn't. I was too busy enjoying them! The sauce and accompanying mash were both delicious and very, very tasty for such 'simple' fair (fare?) Anyway, I heartily recommend. Dining partner's meal was scrumptious... More

We enjoyed some yummy drinks and loved the fried prawn appetizer. Atmosphere was fun and the service was pretty good. We were a bit disappointed by the pizza - it could have used a bit more time in the oven to crisp up.

We ate here twice during our three days in Clifden because we enjoyed this restaurant so much. Although it is a pub, the atmosphere is a bit classier than your normal pub and the menu offers a great variety.

Overall great food and staff and extremely... More

We visited Guys twice, it was so good! We were immediately welcomed and put on the list to be seated on the first night. We were invited to sit at the bar and have a drink while we waited - it was packed with locals, which is a very good sign! At the bar, we discovered a new cider -... More
