Trappers Inn located on the Tuam Road Galway, 2kms from the city centre. It is part of third generation business and has been catering to the local business community since the late 1960’s
The bar serves food all day, staring with breakfast at 8am right through carvery lunch and the bar menu runs from 3 to 6pm. We stopped by at Friday lunch time and the carvery was doing a roaring trade with locals and visitors to the city for the weekend. We don’t usually review carveries, but a friend who works nearby said it was the business, so who are we blow-ins to argue.
The menu is big, definitely something for everybody. With a homemade vegetable or potato & leek soup to start there was a large selection of fresh sandwiches, triple decker or roast of the day on bread to follow. For those looking for something a bit more substantial you could choose from glazed horseshoe gammon, rib of beef or oven baked breast of chicken with all the trimmings
Keisha ordered the sauté breast of chicken curry with basmati rice while I went with the baked fillet of haddock served on a bed of couscous with lemon & dill sauce, mashed potato and selection of fresh vegetables. Both dishes were very good; this is home cooking comfort food, honestly made and fresh, since in carvery terms, busy is good as nothing sits around for long.
We followed with a proper apple pie with fresh cream to share, tea for Keisha and cappuccino for myself. You could also have chosen sticky toffee pudding, sherry trifle or a cheesecake of the day
Food was well served, and the staff more than obliging. If you’re looking for generous servings of good homemade food at exceptional value you can’t go wrong with Trappers where owner Emmet Linnane is always on hand to help
