Parents and children alike will love Jack Meades, with its bar/restaurant fronted by a large beer garden containing railed in playground.

Jack Meades isn’t just a bar serving food and drink, it’s an extensive complex with various facets. The old world bar dates back to circa 1705, the lime kilns and ice house were built circa 1860, the grounds have been tastefully developed and are home to ducks, ponies, donkeys and goats. The large new bar was built in 2005 and boasts an extensive beer garden with childrens play area. One of the top 10 Pub gardens in the British Isles

Jack Meades "Pub Garden" was named by The Sunday Times 13/06/2010 Travel Guide as one of 10 Great Pub Gardens in the British Isles and the only one in Ireland to be recommended. It plays host to ducks on the stream and to the goats, ponies and donkeys who live happily together.
