Go here regular for dinner and cannot recommend it enough. Went for our kids confirmation dinner and with 14 of us we were all looked after very effentially by the staff. Everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Great menu for kids which includes desert for a good price. While we always book to be sure of a table they have... More

Had dinner here earlier this week and sat outside to enjoy the heat wave we were having. It's been some time since we were last here and it has gotten even better! We shared a chicken wing starter and I had the stir fried beef strips and my wife had the tempura prawns for our mains. All of the food... More

Have eaten here a few times it surprises me everytime I go in, you expect average as the place is so homely and not overly modern so you expect to just have what you get in your local, but yet the food it out of this world. It should not be passed!!!

Absolutely love the snailbox. Location is great, food is excellent and the atmosphere in the place is just fab. So much on the menu to choose from and everything I've tried so far have been gorgeous. Staff really friendly with excellent manner. Not a bad word to say about it.

We visited the Snail Box recently with a group of friends for the birthday of one of them. There were thirteen of us in all and we were booked in for dinner and bed and breakfast. From the outset I have to say the Snail Box has a lovely location overlooking rolling hills and countryside and the bar and restaurant... More

Was driving from Newgrange to our hotel, and passed a pub that did not serve food. But when asked pointed us in this direction. Glad they did. This place was very good. Food was tasty. Owner kept coming to our table and even gave us a free hat so that he could take out photo. We are from South Carolina... More

The food here is always great and a great menu for children too. The staff are super friendly and we always go back. The atmosphere is lovely and when the fire is lighting you could sit there all day.

We had a package deal at the Snailbox last night to celebrate a 40th birthday. The package is bed, breakfast & evening meal. The restaurant & accommodation are on a hill & overlook the rolling countryside. The rooms are a good size, spotlessly clean, with tea & coffee supplied. The restaurant is a sight to be seen with baseball caps... More

Just returned from a few days with family and friends staying at the Snailbox. What a great place, the accommodation is clean and functional and fantastic value for money especially combined with the restaurant deal. Surf and Turf is a must, as is their white pudding at breakfast. Steve and the staff were so welcoming and friendly, we will be... More
