Good food for a hotel restaurant

We were too tired to venture out so we tried the hotel restaurant and had great meals. They were all priced at L16 and service was very nice. Glad we tried it!

Had a meal here on Friday 14 November. There were twenty of us and all had a really excellent meal. Food was perfectly cooked to order and beautifully presented. Staff were very efficient and friendly.

How disappointed we were. The writing was on the wall when we were presented with the slightly expanded bistro menus (i.e. bar snacks) as... More

An efficient service offering steak fish and the usual alternatives. 6 or 7 starters and the same number of dessert choices. Supremely short wait between courses due to excellent service.

I'll open by saying we eat at the Armagh City Hotel's Sunday carvery reasonably regularly and find it very good. However, I opted for their bar menu for a quick dinner for the kids and I at the weekend and thats what this review relates to. Firstly, if you had to wait on the staff to bring you menus you'd...
