Grogans of Glasson

Right in the heart of the picturesque village of Glasson lays our charming pub and restaurant.

Moira and Miriam Grogan are your hosts and they preside over this wonderfully atmospheric, traditional family pub and restaurant.

The entrance though small is miss-leading as you enter you are struck by the character and charm of the bar. The cosy front bar is divided in the traditional manner and has a lovely open fire, flag stone floor and a mixture of wood and brass furnishings.

As you round the corner to the main restaurant there is another large open fire for those cosy winter evenings.

The building was established in 1750 and it feels as if the fundamentals haven’t changed too much since then.
