Served in The Silver Key at the bar counter SIX sausages & a portion of chips. Cost €9.95. I would certainly not have ordered this had I been told the cost.

Just had breakfast there and it was awful. Tasted like it was there for hours and probably was too. Tomato was cold, sausage was cheap and we didnt even receive a rasher.

I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. The food isn't amazing and I've never been blown away either but nothing to complain about. Good choice on the menu and very reasonably priced. They seem to always have group bookings, and having eaten here as part of a group, I can see why, quick service and a... More

One of the owners grumpiness was bearable as staff lovely food pricey but generally acceptable. Complaint is they won't honour Coors light or murphys when it rains free pints without you purchasing a pint first. Short sighted mindness won't return

Stopped for lunch today. Ordered the warm chicken salad with balsamic dressing. The salad was literally floating in the dressing! I couldn't finish it. I would have sent it back if I had the chance. It was not one bit busy and the service was shocking. There was at least 5 staff members on that I could see - 2... More

Food was brilliant and service was outstanding. The deserts were outstanding. The bread and butter pudding was unreal.

Have been to this restaurant / bar a few times, most recently last week to meet friends after work. It is a large restaurant, so even when busy there is always a free table. We were mostly meeting for a catch up, so spent a few hours here. We did eat as well, food was good and came out promptly.... More

It was absolutely packed downstairs with parties. Upstairs was completely empty but we were told that without a reservation they can't give us a table so the only available option was to sit outside in the smoking area which wasn't ideal with a 6 year old.. But we were starving to go looking for another place to eat in. Order... More

I had lunch in the bar here last week with my elderly mother. It was busy at the time. A lovely staff member, Jess I think, saw us come in and as my mother is somewhat slow in mobility, Jess immediately led us to a table. She was very courteous and cheerful. The food was lovely, well presented and good... More
