We have been twice to this restaurant and on both occasions the food and service were impeccable Our first trip was for the taster menu which was great and it was possible if there was anything that you didn't like they would change it for you.Our second visit was again with friends and we had the individual choice.

My first visit after a friend recommendation. The evening in your restaurant did not disappoint. Food freshly cooked, good quality and prepared and presented very professionally. The two your lady servers were very polite and informed us of every course. A two hour taster menu extravaganza. Will definitely return to try the new winter 8 course taster, cant wait' Thank...

We visited the Lighthouse in a party of 9 during our annual university reunion weekend. We had the taster menu and everything was brilliant - the food, the wine and especially the service. Everyone is still raving about the quality of the cooking and presentation days later, and finding it impossible to decide which was their favourite course! It's always... More

Visited on a Sat night and the restaurant was nearly full. The restaurant is small but cosy and tables were sufficiently spread so as to be private. Wine menu was excellent with a good choice by the glass. Food selection was also great - it's not the biggest menu eve but there was enough to make choosing difficult. Starters and... More

My partner and I had never had a taster menu before and thought we may not manage 8 courses, but the food was so exquisite we just kept on eating! We loved seeing the chefs at work and really liked the atmosphere in the restaurant. We plan to go back very soon.

We were on holiday in near Ashbourne and this restaurant was recommended to us and we were so glad it was. The restaurant is behind a little pub called the Rose and Crown which is a quaint little pub in it's self. The restaurant was very welcoming and the staff were very pleasant and helpful from the time you entered... More

I have visited this lovely restaurant several times since it opened just a couple of years ago. The first meal was lovely and the service good. However as time has gone by their rate of progression has been nothing short of remarkable. I will refer to my most recent visit on Thursday the 25th September when four of us elected... More

Due to me not living close to the restaurant it has been over two years since I last dined at the Lighthouse, after trying the tasting menu last month I might have to move closer! It has improved so much since we last came, the food has always been very good but on our last visit we were blown away.... More

I have been dining at the Lighthouse every so often for the last three years and it has always been a special experience, never more so than the 8 course tasting menu my friends and I had last week. From start to finish the food was immaculate, all so flavoursome and perfectly presented. My particular favourite being the chocolate sphere,... More
