Vaughans Anchor Inn
The Vaughan family’s traditional bar has great character, with
open fires and lots of memorabilia and fascinating aquarium
feature.Denis Vaughan’s (owner) philosophy is to use as much local
produce as possible, and for all fish to be fresh and from Irish
waters; fish is bought whole and processed on site in order to have
greater control over quality – and he uses as many native species
as possible, on both lunch and dinner menus. They offer about
twenty varieties of fish, and the menu may even be changed in
mid-stream because there’s something new coming up off the
However, you don’t have to eat seafood to eat well here –
vegetarian options are offered, also game in season, and they do
excellent steaks too, and many other good meat dishes including
imaginative variations on roast lamb or beef and you can have
sautéed foie gras with any of the meat dishes if you wish.

Vaughan’s on the Prom
This smart modern two-storey restaurant was acquired
by the Vaughan family, of Liscannor’s famed Anchor Inn, in 2021
It enjoys a great location, overlooking one of Ireland ’s best surfing beaches, and
the interior is very attractive.
Environmental care and local sourcing are central to Denis Vaughan’s (owner &
head chef) philosophy and super-fresh fish and seafood.Their superb Fish & Chips is
made with the freshest of fish and dipped in their famous batter (the starter dates
back 19 years!),it is served with genuine handcut chips that are steamed before
frying in beef dripping.
A Basque Josper Grill that is used for cooking all meat and shellfish over hot coals at
250ºC, giving it an irresistible flavour and texture. Favourites include whole
Clare lobsters, Galway Bay Prawns (langoustines) and John Stone Black Angus Rib
Eye Steak, which is served with a flavoursome beef jus and chunky chips.
Starter specialities include a Proper Prawn Cocktail, made with Galway langoustines,
iceberg lettuce and Marie Rose sauce, and delicious Steamed Mussels with white
wine, garlic and parsley oil, served with freshly baked soda bread.
Service is great, and it should be no surprise to find that the drinks list is very well
considered – and includes the local beer, Western Herd. And don’t forget to round off
a meal here with that other speciality, ice cream – from their own ‘cow to cone’ ice
cream parlour, Spooney’s, next door.
