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

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
