I stayed here last weekend with my partner and we got a very good rate for the 2 nights, so I honestly wasn't expecting a lot for our "4 course meal" ! We dined in the Charleville restaurant and as soon as you walk in you get such a luxurious feel to the place from the decor to the menu!... More

Fantastic night with friends and family. Restaurant was fully booked but we were made to feel very special. The food was amazing and we had plenty of time between courses to chat and relax. Been presented with a beautiful cake for my birthday really topped off a wonderful experience. Waiting staff were very attentive and efficient.

Went with a family party of 12. Menu rather limited very old fashioned €10 supplement for steak on early bird !! No real 'light' options, 1 veggie option ( mushroom tagliatelle), nothing inspiring to choose from. But if you want large portions of everyday meals this is the place to go. Staff friendly and attentive but messed up on the... More

2We were looking forward to an evening out with friends minus the 7 kids between us. We were not disappointed with Balcone Italiano Restraunt in The Bridge House Hotel Tullamore.

I have regularly dined at this restaurant over the years whilst visiting family in Tullamore. Sadly I have noticed the decline in menu choice and service on my last couple of visits.

Not often I have to say this but would avoid going back to this restaurant. Service was poor; were given different menus with different prices and then our server tried to explain that the cheaper was a year out of date. Seems strange that this was never an issue previously and got the impression we were getting told a tall... More

So looking forward and so disappointed. Sat down with a table for six. Gorgonzola x2 and Black pudding starter x4 were awful, bland and ordinary. Manager took our order and one of us had to wait with one of the starters delayed by 10 min. Mains were terrible. I ordered T bone. Was cold and full of fat and gristle.... More
