Ireland - no passport required.

The Holy Grail is church and a trip to Ireland with no passport or collection plates - it is simply beautiful and fun. The bathrooms are the confessionals, the choir loft is lovely and fun, they have a gorgeous mural of Ireland on one entire wall with the Holy Ghost looking over it and you get to... read more

What a nice idea, converting an old Church into a Restaurant/Bar. Nice location with plenty of parking (remember it was a Church) Inside they did a great job, it has a large horseshoe Bar with tables around the edges and upstairs. They also have a nice and large outside seating area. The tables outside have umbrellas and the seating is... More

Our group of twelve ladies recently enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We sat high in the loft overlooking the murals, rafters and stained glass. We were treated royally by waitress Mariah who was attentive and one step ahead of our requests. Thank you kindly. Our assorted meals were delicious from sandwiches, wraps, lobster rolls, seafood trio, salads, bangers and mash, and... More

We had an attentive server. We almost sat outside on the patio, looked so beautiful outside, however I was with a guest from Kentucky and I wanted her to see how beautiful it is inside. We ordered the artichoke dip and the server was kind enough to request they toast and cut up a gluten free hamburger roll so that... More

Was able to grab a couple of seats at the bar, great service from bar tender during our wait there. Nice selection of draft beers. Once seated started with corned beef nachos & mussels, both were good. Dinner consisted of fish... More

The Holy Grail is very popular in our area with many of my friends enjoying the restaurant. I have tried it three times and found the food to be mediocre with what seems like a lot of processed food lacking in great flavor. The service was good and the drinks were satisfactory.

The decor is outstanding, the Scotch eggs are interesting and different and my salad special of the day was delicious. Iced tea was fantastic too. Loved the vibe and the Guinness cocktail menu as well! A must visit in Epping.
