The restaurant is nestled in the shadow of Roscrea castle and it’s a quaint Tudor style building, with a winding stair and triangular shaped windows. They don’t have a wine licence, so we dropped into the local Tesco and armed with a Stellenbosch and Chianti headed for... More

I visited this restaurant on my last evening in Ireland (this trip!) I had eaten here before and found it more than acceptable. However, sadly this time it was a disappointment. They don't have a license for drinks, but this is no problem as there's a very good off license in the town. The waitress found us a pleasant table... More

Ate there on a Saturday, sign outside advertised lunch menu from €7.95 but when we were seated we were told that there is no lunch menu at the weekends. We were the only people in the restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime which did ring alarm bells but we decided to stay. We only wanted something light and ordered two starters:... More
