Description: Finin O'Sullivan's thriving bar and restaurant in the centre of Midleton town has long been a popular place for locals to meet for a drink and to eat some good wholesome food. The entrance is bright and cheery, painted in pillarbox red and white, and the theme is continued inside, where black topped tables are simply set up with the basics needed for a meal. This attractive, no-nonsense place offers a wide range of popular home-made dishes, mostly based on local produce notably fresh seafood from Ballycotton and harbour steaks, also old favourites like a well-made Irish Stew; evening menus are more extensive and include some more specialities including roast duckling. Good short wine list.

We thought we were in for a real treat as it was so busy when we arrived. We were even asked had we booked a table. Luckily a table freed up. It felt like quite a cramped environment, the tables felt very close together. I ordered the special, medallions of sirloin and pepped sauce. My husband orderedeg of lamb. Both my kids ordered chicken goujons and chips. The meal arrived very quickly, on and enormous plate were 3 tiny medallions. My husband got 3 very thin slices of lamb. The kids portions were quite good. We also got a small bowl of veg and potatoes. The plates were so big that didn't fit on the table together which was very annoying. It just highlighted how small the portions were. We both had a pint bottle and the kids had cokes. 63 Euro and we both weren't full after. Wouldn't be returning.

We stopped in here for a late lunch after touring the Old Middleton Distillery. The food was great, especially the chowder. The staff was very friendly and welcoming - all in all a great place!
