Quiet, friendly, Great food and attentive.

Hatter's is a wonderful place to go if you don't want blaring music and just enjoy the art of conversation while having amazing food. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu and attentive to special dietary requirements. Really great location in the heart of beautiful Athlone.

Hatters is a really cosy quirky restaurant with a great choice of food....very reasonably priced . Service was efficient & the staff were very friendly & chatty!Great for groups but would be equally nice for a couple....would highly recommend trying here....its tucked away from the main street but not far from the hotels/pubs . I'll be back!
