Great little place

We visited Ardmore today and spotted this restaurant. Service is very efficient with everyone seeming to look after a different aspect eg one person took order, someone else brought water etc. As I have dietary requirements I was a bit nervous as I knew nothing of the place but I can say it was a... read more

Booked a table for 5 at The White Horses for a small family celebration. Arrived at the designated time and shown to our table. The first problem was we were only handed 2 menus and the wine list which I thought was strange having to share a menu but we muddled along. The prices of the starters were quite expensive... More

A group of 12 of us visited the Whitehorses tonight and to say we were disappointed would be an understatement! For the price we paid for the meal you would expect to be given a feed for a king! My main course of Chicken Curry which consisted of one chicken skewer (5 little pieces of chicken) a drizzle of curry... More

most restaurants nowadays offer terrific value in terms of early birds and after visiting white horses I realise they offer value outside of early birds when I compare white horses. Four of us had dinner and found the menu poor - choice wise. Very very pricey and I compare to many good restaurants in cork city and Midleton in particular.... More

We were in Ardmore for our wedding at the Cliff House Hotel and decided a meal out for all the family (wedding party) would be nice. We looked around Ardmore but could only see that The Whitehorses restaurant was open, and then only on a Friday and Saturday night, not suprising as it was October and therefor not the height...

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent. The main courses are expensive, Dublin or London prices, but the selection of vegetables that come with the mains make it good value. The desert's are always a wonderful treat here. Service is efficient and can be slow when the resuarant is busy. Lunch... More

Very rude staff and the heart of any good restaurant is nice and friendly staff, would not go back there again as meal is every expensive but you at least expect to... More

Ok, so I've always taken web reviews with a pinch of salt. However when I read through some of the recent reviews of this place I was shocked. We had dinner on a quiet mid-week evening as a walk in. As alluded to by other reviews the service was at best, to be polite, "eccentric". I had the creamy fish... More

Great substantial plate of dinner place, really good traditional square meals. The service is brusk but good. The room was very hot when we visited. This place works very well with the combo of the cliff walk.
