Rockett's of the Metal Man

Rockett's of the Metal Man Review

One mile from Tramore is Rockett's, part of the Metal Man pub—an old and welcoming place always packed with local farmers, truckers, and Southeast Willie Loman types. The house specialty is thoroughly unpretentious—crubeens (pig's feet), an Irish version of spare ribs that, with all their attendant oily, finger-licking goodness, will surely stave off hunger pangs for exhausted travelers. Long before roasted nuts and potato chips arrived, every Irish pub served crubeens, but nowadays you have to look long and hard to find them. The menu also includes bacon and cabbage and colcannon.
