Christmas period family dinner

We had our family get-together dinner in The Old Fort on 27th Dec 2015. The service was great and the food was lovely. The staff were friendly and courses served at the same time even though there was 28 of us. We paid 29 euro for 3 course meal with tea/coffee and there was a good selection to... read more

I have always loved this restaurant as I love the old building it's in, but food has sometimes been a little disappointing. BUT since Parkers took over I can't say a bad word about it! The 4 course value menu is superb. The food is so so good. I've been 3 times in last few months with different groups and... More

We visited the old fort restaurant recently and were pleased by the food quality and the overall appearance of the Restaurant. The staff seemed not to know exactly what they were doing and we were never asked was everything ok or did we require anything ??? They are charging 7 Euro for a Glass of House Wine which is ridiculous... More

Area was cold and without atmosphere. I had shank of lamb which appeared to have been previously cooked, as although the meat came off the bone easily enough, it was hard.

Great food at a very good price. For lunch or evening dining you must visit to believe the quality. The location and view from the first floor overlooking the river Shannon is great.

This was recently taken over by Parkers, who have other restaurants, and its shows. They obviously have a formula, and it works well! Lovely menu, good choice, very tasty food and great value! Eaten here twice in recently months and beautiful both times. Nice atmosphere in the place, warm (considering its an old Fort) and appropriate decor to suit. Whether... More
