We were given menus quickly but after that service was rather slow. Being by the sea and at a fishing port we expected fresh fish. One of the specials was crumbed haddock – it had a thick batter/crumb coating and the fish did not taste fresh. Vegetables were good and portion sizes generous. Tea/coffee was served before dessert. Banoffee pie was the worst I’ve ever had, it had a dry pastry with a very thin sliver of toffee with slices of fresh banana. Crumble of the day was fruity but served with lumpy custard. We were not checked on during the main course There were several small children running around noisily.

We stopped here for lunch on our way from Sligo to Letterkenny. We had the chowder and the Scampi and while neither would win awards they were both tasty and very good sized portions. Lovely setting and very friendly and helpful staff. I'd recommend it if you are passing that way.

Was visiting the nearby Glencolmcille area so myself and 3 friends went for a meal here. The restaurant has a lovely setting. Its interior is not too formal and it bodes well for the families who like to dine out for Sunday dinner. There's a good selection on the menu, the fish cakes that I had were lovely.

Consistently good food and very good portions. Pleasant and comfortable bar. Service is generally prompt at the start sometimes after mains are served you can be forgotten about. Prices are higher than you might expect for bar food but the quality justifies them.

The Clock Tower is quite an impressive building and for anyone who remembered what it looked like 20 years ago it is a very nice restoration. We visited for bar food for family get together on the bank holiday weekend and had a nice time. Service was prompt, food was nice and in good portions. I had steak and ale pie and although not quite what I was expecting it was extremely tasty. The accompanying chips were crispy and perfectly cooked. Prices are slightly higher than I'd like but still reasonable value and the fact it is busy despite being out of town is a good sign. If you're ever driving through South West Donegal its definitely worth a visit. There is also a function room that caters to larger events, decking if the weather is nice and previously there was a very nice dining room upstairs but I believe thats closed currently.
