Moran's Oyster Cottage

  • Seafood

Fodor's Review

Signposted off the main road on the south side of Clarinbridge, this waterside thatch cottage, the home of six generations of the Moran family (since 1760), houses at its rear a simply furnished restaurant that serves mainly seafood. It's the place to sample the local oysters, though chowder, smoked salmon, seafood cocktail, lobster with boiled potatoes and garlic butter, and fresh crab salad are also on offer. In good weather, you can eat outside overlooking the weir and watch the swans float by. The front bar has been preserved in the "old style," which means it's small and cramped, but very interesting if you want to get an idea of what most pubs around here were like 50 years ago.
