    We were seated beside a window/ door at alley way beside building. Worst seating in the house. Could see better seating vacant elsewhere. Totally ruined the experience

    Katie was a great waitress. We waited over an hour for fish and chips. My son who’s 4 I ordered chicken tenders when they arrived were PINK had I not checked his food he could have been so sick. I sent them back they came out again the same chicken cooked further and again PINK instead of cooking then fresh they re cooked the chicken that’s so dangerous and still it wasn’t right. I definitely would not recommend here for anyone. This was at 6 o’clock and the place nearly empty. The rest of the food that took over an hour to come the peas were cold chef forgot to microwave them!!!!! Seriously you couldn’t make this up. Just awful on our on one night stay in Galway. Thanks!

    Outdoor area was awful it was cold, no heaters. We did get blankets upon request, but it wasn’t a very nice place to sit and look at
