It is situated just off the road and attracts a lot of passing trade. The Bandon road is the main route from Cork City to West Cork. I have been in there a few times for lunch. They serve a decent carvery lunch and on all my visits it has been very busy. The bar is just inside the door but i have always went into the bigger area at the back. It is not a place i would consider heading at night time but it is convenient to stop off at. I have had one pint of Murphy’s in there and it wasn’t too bad. They do BBQ’S during the summer that might be worth checking out. I would hazard a guess that the Viaduct does a better daytime trade than at night. There are not many residental areas in the vicinity so you would have to drive and not drink or alternatively get a taxi.
The toilets were fine on the one occasion that i made use of them. The only complaint i would have about the place is that it seemed to be disorganised on my last visit. Tables were not cleared and staff were not easily found. That was only on one occasion though. It is a nice stop off for a bite to eat.
Toilet rating: 6/10
Pint rating: 6/10
Overall rating: 6/10
Final comment: The Viaduct Inn does not have much competition in the immediate area. Their carvery lunch is a nice treat.
