“Good but could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I was part of a group of 9 people.
There is a set menu available which is good. I had the black pudding and apple sauce starter which was excellent. For the main I had cod and chips. All ok. Veg was perfectly cooked.
Two of our group had to send their mains back as they were cold.
The service was friendly and helpful but waiting times are a bit too long.

Not a great atmosphere in the restaurant. I will probably try once more.

“great food ruined by the ridiculous time we had to wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We decided to try this restaurant because we were walking past it and they had signs outside and the prices seemed reasonable. We went in and the waiter asked if we had a reservation and we said no. He then seemed uncertain what to do with us so after looking around uncertainly he asked us to sit and wait. While waiting we looked at the menu and it seemed to have quite a few good choices but the left us waiting for around 20minutes.

When they finally gave us a table we ordered right away since we'd had 20 minutes to look at the menu. But an hour and 15 minutes later, we'd only gotten the starter and were still waiting for our mains. The waiting was too much. The restaurant was not even full, so being extremely busy was not an excuse. To make matters worse, there were two tables that we could see that came in after us and got served before us.

The food was delicious, but that fact was grossly shadowed by the ridiculous time we were kept waiting. I'm not sure I would go again..

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Really enjoyed the food and flavours. Portions were not too large so left room for the lovely desserts. Good value and Tues & Wed eves are currently BYO - so even better. Waited a little for the starters (but not at all excessively), but were warned of this on the menu as food is freshly prepared. It was worth it!

“What a fantastic find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Our gastronomic tour of Ireland started here by chance. We sampled the potato and garlic soup, and prawns and can thoroughly recommend the fish, chips and spiced peas. (the description does not do it justice!)
During our tour, which included three days at the 5 star Adare Manor, we did not sample food of this quality with this level of creativity.
If you are on the way from or to the ferry. Stop off here to celebrate.
Saturdays are busy so book but we found Sunday no problem.
