“An easy 5 stars. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I was at a party here recently with a large enough group and the service was so good that I decided to give it a go again on a recent trip to Ennis. I was delighted I went back because the food was delicious. I had a goats cheese parcel to start and I had to stop myself from licking the plate. I had pan seared cod for the main and it was perfectly cooked as well with a mouth watering sauce and a very generous helping of vegetables on the side. The meal was really well paced as well which was very welcome because of the portion size. I didn't want to be leaving any behind. Ha ha. Can't recommend it enough. Hopefully I will be in Ennis again soon to try the rest of the menu.

“Friendly staff & good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Arrived there this evening, 5pm, no reservation, two adults and two small children, 5 & 3 years old, welcomed at door and seated immediately. Early bird menu did not start till 5.30pm but they happily obliged us. Nice choice of options for children and when food arrived it was well presented and tasted great, kids loved it. Adult starters mushrooms and chowder went down well and duck and fajitas for the mains also lovely. Staff very friendly especially with the children and came to check on us many times. Overall a very pleasant experience, will definitely return in the future.
