Ate here last night with my husband. He had the brie for starter which was very good but could have benefited from a little more coulis. For mains he had the duck which he again enjoyed. I had the pork. They gave me a steak knife for the pork but to be fair you could have eaten it with a... More

Had dinner here with my husband and kids. It was gorgeous. We had the value men which at €25 for 3 courses was indeed value! The boys had half portions of food that was on the main menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to see them eating "real" food and not the usual rubbishy fare of "everything with... More

Paid a visit to this long established restaurant in the company of some friends recently. It was my first time back there in about five years and I must say I was looking forward to my return. The surroundings have changed very little in the interim and the welcome is as warm as ever. The decor may be a little... More

I could not recommend this Restaurant enough. The food was suberb and the service was friendly and efficent. The decor was a little quaint but this did not take from the atmosphere. A very enjoyable evening was had and I will be back any time I'm in Athlone.

This was my first visit to Hatters Lane with 2 friends and we certainly were not disappointed. It was our first visit to Athlone and we were purely going by the reviews as were unsure where to eat. I had the chicken fajitas and they were just amazing. Food, price and service were all excellent. The staff were very accommodating... More

If I could rate it less than zero I would. From the minute I got there it was a let down. The main room is packed like a cattle shed. There is little room between tables, there isn't even room for the waiters to walk comfortably between guests. Ordered fajitas which cost 19.95. What came to the plate was a... More
