image preview

The Grealish family, owners of landmark 800-year-old pub The King's Head in Galway's Latin Quarter, are celebrating 30 years in business this year. To mark the occasion, and to say a big ‘thank you’ to the local community that have supported them over the past three decades, Paul and Mary Grealish are hosting a coffee and cake morning from 10am tomorrow (Friday), with all proceeds going to the Galway Rape Crisis Centre.

The King's Head

The pub is now to Ireland what the bistro has long been to France, that is a place of reliable cooking to be found across the country. Just as the French bistro is likely to have a menu of frisée and lardon salad, some steak frites and an apple tart, so the Irish pub will offer a terrine or pate, a burger and something involving beetroot and goat's cheese to start. There will be a fish dish, probably pork belly and rib eye for mains, and a chocolate fondant, crème brûlée, and lemon tart to finish. This is all excellent. They are sturdy, trustworthy dishes, the Ronseal of restaurant food. Either they are executed well or they are not great. Either way pub food culture will always be marked by its ordinary, not its exceptional.
