Scholars hotel is family run and it shows, the personal touch and attention to detail is evident from the minute you walk in the door. Every time my partner and I have been there the hospitality has been excellent and the customer service second to none. We have been for coffee, had a bar meal and dined in the restaurant.... More

We had an amazing stay in scholars in October. The staff were very welcoming and very accommodating! We ate the first night in the bar, it was quite busy and not very many tables. We were seated quickly and then moved to a better table before we had ordered. Menu was good and plenty of choice. Food arrived quickly and... More

Enjoyed a Saturday lunch in Scholars recently with family. Food very tasty and staff very attentive. Ideal location and setting for a Saturday chill. Bar menu offering soup, wings and salads to start and main courses of venison burgers, fish and chips, beef bourguignon, chowder and other choices on specials. Always pleased on a visit to Scholars that is why... More

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
