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.

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
