I got saw dust in my food. I believe the kitchen was being "renovated". I duly contacted the food inspector. The young waitress was excellent and I cannot fault the staff but the head chef would not talk to me in person. I will never eat here again.

Dear Reviewer After fully investigating such an urgent matter I would be very grateful if you could contact me urgently in regard to such a delicate matter. I have reviewed camera footage in the restaurant and taken up a huge amount of time in this busy period to try and figure out when or how possible "saw dust" could land... More

We visited for Sunday lunch and we were very impressed. The ambience is excellent and the service was of a high standard. The menu offered a good choice and the food was of a good standard. We were surprised when we realised that we were paying more than you would in a good Dublin restaurant. Good but we would rate... More

Paul I apologise you were not satisfied with our food. If you could specify where we went wrong so we could try and correct the issues. A good review should be informative and provide on opportunity for an establishment to correct their mistakes otherwise the owner would feel that the review is malicious. Regards Mark Mc Gowan More

A real gem in Drogheda. The hotel has a cozy bar & a warm welcome from the staff. Great bar food, great flavours & an extensive wine list. The restaurant is white tablet cloths & vintage silver. The chef had definitely raised the bar of the food in the last 12 months. Don't leave without trying the homemade ice cream,... More

We are delighted to entertain and thank you for the feedback. We have a new team in the kitchen and it is great to receive acknowledgement for the improvements we have made. Apologies in regard to the small portion of Ice cream, if you ever would like some extra we would happily oblige. Thank you Mark Mc Gowan More

Stayed here overnight for a work meeting. Scholars is a nice cosy little hotel close to the centre of town. The rooms are small but have everything necessary to make for a comfortable stay.

Really nice hotel - the interior is spcetacular. The rooms are a bit small, but typical for Europe. The breakfast area is nicely laid out, the service excellent, and the furnishings are beuatiful antiques. Outside there is a garden with tables and chaier that runs the length of the front. Awesome in good weather.
