This was our second visit and now we are living here we intend to visit more often. Fabulous food a real treat so close to home.Simple menu expertly delivered, the whiskey sour a light creamy sensation! We are appreciated the relaxed attitude and lack of stuffiness...please don't change! P.S. There's a typo on this page declaring you're closed from Jan 18 which should be jan 19.

Our Atmosphere rating was more about the layout than the friendliness. No doubt the desire to maintain the ‘pub’ design meant that things were a little functional. The food was amazingly good and for the price outstanding. Will definitely come again

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in your restaurant. Lovely décor and atmosphere and we really liked the music that was playing. Our waitress from Ballydehob was superb - professional yet friendly - thank you. Just one point - with alcohol restrictions when driving, its nice to really savour a glass or two of wine - our waitress kindly let us taste a few wines however we had to try a couple before we found ones we really liked - so you might have another look at your wine by the glass list. Thank you again for a wonderful evening

Nice, intimate, friendly place. All the food was very good and beautifully cooked without ever having the 'wow' factor. Too many tiny blobs of of things for my taste and I left hungry. It was all a little bit precious and some carbohydrates would have been welcome. I thought the cod and potato 'snack' was excellent as was the deliciously pink and succulent venison. The wine we ordered was very good but probably overpriced. I can see that with so few covers and cooking of this standard they are probably not making a lot of money at this price point so I hope they make a go of it. It's a welcome addition to the West Cork culinary scene and we enjoyed the experience. We won't be rushing back but probably will go again sometime.

Truly lovely evening; the venue is charming especially the room at the front, the food was exceptional and the service attentive without being intrusive. The fact that my husband doesn't eat seafood was not a problem. The evening lived up to expectation and, indeed, exceeded it. We will be back.
