I dont want to complicate this review. Its straight to the point. Simple food done right. Local suppliers used. Wait staff went over and beyond. Restaurant itself is in a very good location. I could not have been happier, the menu was great and had a full vegetarian menu. A three course meal for under €30.00 I could not fault... More

By far one of the best restaurants in Meath... And this is not an exaggeration. The staff are fantastic and the chief never fails to deliver a quality dinner. And what is more impressive is across the whole menu, not one dish is dull.

The food was delicious and the staff were some of the nicest people I have ever come across. They spoke to us as if we knew them years, they were so friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home.

Group of 8 went for short break , food was great and reasonable early bird menu. Always offers vegetarian option for picky eaters. Staff are attentive and friendly with your extra request. Just mind the small step coming out of the toilet if you have a glass of wine,

This is a great restaurant friendly staff and a great menu to go with it. Great early bird selection which runs late on certain nights. Have to say the filet steak is to die for so delicious and the garlic potatoes, oh would love some right now they're so tasty. Modern decor which is bright and cheery.

We were a large group and were looked after very well. There is a great choice on menu and the food was lovely. The early bird is great value. Staff efficient and friendly.
