Last but definitely not least, we simply must talk about the delicious array of both food and drink options available. The food menus include all your usual bar food favourites, all made to the highest of standard and tastes every bit as delicious as it looks and smells. We recently treated ourselves to some of their food and drink options and each bite was absolutely divine. We ordered their famous Clonakilty black pudding croquettes for starters as well as their chicken wings, both of which were to die-for. Following this, we ordered the beef and Guinness pie and goats' cheese salad. The pie and chicken wings were both served in bowls that were specially handmade in Donegal, which was a lovely touch to the dining experience. For dessert, naturally we opted for the cheesecake which was a gorgeous finale to a delightful evening out. On the drinks side of things, we indulged on creamy pints of Guinness and Pretty in Pink and Espresso Martini cocktails. One thing that's for absolute certain we will be back to try even more of their menu options as we loved everything that was put in front of us.
