Resturant is much more inviting than photographs potray so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Starters were delivered VERY quickly and were JUST okay...fishcakes didnt have much flavour. Mains were excellent...in fact Braised beef was outstanding. Desert...Sticky toffee pudding, like starter, was mediocre..i would say pre-packed rather than home made..it was far from warm..dry and slightly stale to taste. Staff were... More

Neither the food nor the ambiance is exceptional and I am surprised that this restaurant gets such a high rating. The service was slow and the decor is uninspiring.

Atmosphere: I'm not quite sure what this restaurant is trying to be. Scantily decorated with French wine paraphernalia, the odd oriental light fixture, Christmas decorations in place of table dressings, and a very colourful stripy carpet - I found it a little confusing. The name "The Oak Room" brings to mind images of oak barrels and aging wines, dark colours... More

I just love going to this restaurant. Its a lovely treat. The atmosphere is warm and laid back and the staff are friendly and efficient. A three course meal is from €25 and the choices are good. Their baked Alaska is honestly the best I've ever had. They have a good wine list also.

We ate here on a recommendation when we were staying in the Farnham Estate, and it was fabulous. The food was first class and really decently priced. The staff were very attentive. It doesn't look the most luxurious of places but the food makes this place well worth the visit. I will return when i'm back in Cavan.

Staying at a local hotel nearby I was less than impressed with the food on offer. As a result, I went in search of a better option. What I found in The Oak Room was beyond what I could have asked for. Opting for the early bird we couldn't believe the high quality of food for a reasonably priced 3... More
