Was just at The Old Arch for lunch with a friend yesterday, really lovely place. The staff were absolutely lovely and extremely helpful. Sat out in the beer garden for a while til the sun (I know!) got the better of us, a very nice area, with plenty of seating. Food was delicious and plenty of it, couldn't finish it. I had salmon and my friend had an open sandwich. My salmon was perfectly cooked and served with very tasty veg while my friend had a delicious salad, chips and an onion relish that she said was delicious. Moved inside to a very comfy sofa.....Had to try their caramel cheesecake and was not disappointed, fresh and very moreish....but as I said couldn't have eaten any more if I tried. Nice coffee too. For €30 an absolute bargain, lovely spot, high recommend and will definitely be back!

The restaurant is on James Street in Claremorris. I visited following on a recommendation from a taxi driver in Galway City who reckoned it was worth the detour. I agree with this judgement. The restaurant has a cosy feeling but actually there are plenty of tables.I was there on a Tuesday evening at 6 o clock and a number were filled. I had the early bird option. My starter from a list of six was seafood chowder which came with good bread and butter. It was tasty and plenty of fish. I had a medium rare steak for the main course which was really good. An amazing array of vegetables, three kinds o potato, onion rings, mushrooms and a plate of five tiny veg portions. Dessert was out of the question! Coffee to follow- a pot of coffee not a miserable mean little cup! Pleasant service throughout the meal. Cost was €21 and if I had dessert an extra €3 . Highly recommend.
