Great value early bird

We really enjoyed our early bird. We just popped in on a Saturday evening we didn't have a table booked,but it wasn't a problem at all.We were welcomed & seated straight away. We ordered from the early bird menu,which was really lovely & great value for money.We'll definitely be back soon.

Good food, nice decor, good price and the rudest waitress I have ever met. We simply couldn't understand why? We actually asked did we do something to upset her but simply snubbed us?!?!? Ruined our night. No manager on duty but assistant manager just smiled at us when we complained. Quite simply dreadful staff. Should not have paid for meal... More

I wont go in to all the details but had a terrible experience in this place. The food was terrible but the managers attitude was worse. They didn't even have the manners to reply to a letter and e-mail I sent them. Never to return and will advise friends to do same.

Was really let down by this restaurant as I had heard good things. Staff were nice and decor is okay, however food is below average and very over priced. There is much better and cheaper in other restaurants in navan.

We went as a party of 8 for a family gathering. The food was fine and the service was OK but it was expensive and there is much better value and food in Navan. Disappointed 😞

Tried the Russell on a recommendation from our B&B host. Upon arriving without a reservation, we were told it would be. 30 minute wait. They suggested we go across the street to the pub for a drink, they would come across the street and let us know when our table was ready. Back in 30 minutes, our table away ready... More

We arrived to the Russell to find that they hadn't booked in our table, they eventually found our reservation, much to our relief! The whole thing was handled so well, we weren't left to feel it was going to be a problem at all. We were seated and relaxed in no time. We ordered from the early bird menu, a... More

This was a busy night and a good test for any restaurant. Boy did they pass with flying colours. Compliments to staff, management and owners. All were good humoured, pleasant, courteous, efficient, obliging and 100% on their game. They were fully aware and noticed what needed to be done without anyone telling them. I cannot remember seeing a restaurant run... More
