As i'm getting married here this summer I decided to go to The Bell Tower in Castlemartyr resort recently with my fiancee & her family when we were celebrating some recent news. It also gave my fiancee and myself an opportunity to sample different types of food off the menu to help us in our wedding menu choice.
The food was smashing, every course, every meal, everyone enjoyed. I loved my venison, my partner loved her duck, we now have a very clear idea what will be on our menu!
However, something that was a little bit worrying, was the service. Putting it simply, it just wasn't very attentative, nor was it the 5* standard that the hotel should offer. We had to ask for our glasses to be filled on a constant basis (eventually just filled ourselves), it's only something small but in other lesser, cheaper restaurants I've dined in waiters would always top up your water/wine, etc unprompted. Long time frame between courses, for the main course we had been waiting the guts of half an hour and had to enquire where our food was, funny enough it came about 2 minutes after we enquired.. Finally we had to ask for our empty plates to be collected after said main course was eaten.
I'm putting this down to a bad night? I have been here before and the service was much better, I just hope they don't have many off nights! Overall the company was great, the wine was flowing the atmosphere was good, the decor in the room was stunning and we had a lovely night and I can't wait to get married here.
