So happy to return to this excellent restaurant. Fantastic staff, innovative menu. I'm amazed that they do it time and time again. This is a big restaurant in a small town. If you're in area go, if you're not its well worth a visit. I've recommended this restaurant to many people and I don't do that lightly. Great range of... More

We have dined in the Vanilla Pod quite a few times and the food as well as the staff have always been excellent! We normally go for the Early Bird menu which is excellent value for money with 3 courses including tea/ coffee at 25 Euro (if I remember correctly). There is always plenty to choose from, classics such as... More

This little restaurant is well worth going out of the way. It is not just the excellent food and great menu selection, as well as the friendly efficient staff, it's the presentation and little extra touches that make it special. Homemade biscuits served with their delicious coffee, complimentary bottled water, etc. I've been three times and it has never disappointed.... More

Ate here twice, breakfast and dinner, and the service was excellent both times. The dinner was tasty with lots of choices. Breakfast buffet was fine with the option to order eggs from the menu. Very nice hotel restaurant.
