Visited here at 7th on a Thursday evening. The place was relatively quiet with 2 floor staff. Food we ordered was tasty and would happily visit again. Only issue we had was the table we sat at was a little off square, my wife kept trying to adjust! All in all a good eat and helpful staff

Four of us stopped by chance in Kells yesterday evening and decided to have the early bird in the Pod restaurant attached to Headford Arms Hotel. Really good food and wonderful service made a long drive home into a memorable experience.

My husband and I went to the Vanilla Pod for a Father's Day lunch along with my parents, sister and two small children. The service was second to none. Lovely child-tolerant staff who offered more sprinkles on ice-cream than they are ever lucky enough to get at home. All were happy with their food bar my mum who felt her... More

I had heard so much about this restaurant and was looking forward to eating there for the first time and I was happy that it lived up to its reputation. The staff are... More

Very disappointed with all 3courses. Steak tough and certainly not medium rare. Chips from frozen .desert covered in artificial cream. Hardly good enough for the price where most items even on set menu had a supplement

I was here recently with a party of 10 to celebrate a birthday. We were greeted and seated by a lovely and very helpful waitress called Laura. Found our table to be very cramped for 10 people! The restaurant was very busy that night with 3 other large tables! Think they probably squeezed in a few too many! We all... More

Good meal, Cesar salad starter followed by sirloin steak and Eton mess all washed down by a good bottle of wine in a friendly atmosphere with a few mates, a great way to spend an evening
