O Donovan's hotel is well known as a very local popular place for lunch. The restaurant serves hot food throughout the day it has a range of various choices from roasts, sandwiches made to orders cakes etc. Quick service. They do gluten free options and half portions if you ask. On a few occasions I've bought a child's portion as they are generous on portion size.

We arrived late during hadn't booked anywhere to eat. Fortunately O'Donovans was still open. We had an enjoyable meal at this establishment, the waitress service was efficient and the food excellent. We had the roast beef with a large side dish of seasonal veg.

Any weary traveller would feel relief on entering here, it's a place you can order quickly without fuss and eat.

I would recommend this restaurant for the quality of the service and food. Some other restaurants could learn from your hospitality.

Our food was excellent but took about 45 minutes to arrive.

The staff were apologetic and were working hard.

Was the place understaffed? Was the chef late for his/her shift?

Who knows.

The place wasn't especially busy but it did take a very long time to get food to our table and to several tables around us.

We found the food reasonable value for money and the staff were courteous.

The surroundings/decor are probably in need of an update, but this is a pretty 'honest' and unpretentious place and we shall probably return if passing through again.

Went to eat and take in the music session on a Tuesday night. The menu was a typical bar menu with some pub classics and other items. The food was well cooked and well presented. Although busy the service was efficient and courteous. After eating we stayed to enjoy the music session resulting in a very convivial evening.

Before 12 it's just breakfast on the menu, so a cream and jam scone and Cappuccino was my preference. Friendly staff, spacious and in a very quaint location.
