“Graduation day.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Took our son there on his graduation day.
We were the only customers in the restaurant - all three of us.
We opted for the early bird menu. Starters were excellent.
Our main courses - pork, chicken & salmon were top of the range.
On the downside we ordered two pints of beer but the barrels and taps were empty. There is no point having a bar with no beer.
For most of the time we were there the chef and staff were parked behind the bar / reception chatting - not a good or professional image.

“Excellent food, excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Had dinner in Preachers last night. I had the potato, carrot and caraway soup which was beautiful in taste and texture. I then had the lamb chumps which came with aubergine, mixed vegetables, green beans and new potatoes. The lamb was cooked perfectly and had a beautiful flavour. The selection of vegetables was excellent and very well presented. The service was very efficient and friendly.
I would strongly recommend Preachers for variety and value. The restaurant has been recently redecorated and is a very pleasant setting for an evening meal.

“Mid week special is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Birthday celebrations so hoping for something special and it was far more than that. The starter of warm apple, pancetta and walnuts with lettuce that tasted like it was just picked from the garden won me over immediately. I've never tasted salmon as good. It was the first meal we have had where we truely tasted each component of the course, with each one bursting with flavour. We'll be back to try the Sunday lunch and plan to bring more people to experience the ambiance of the venue, the friendliness of the staff and the unbelievable food value.

“sunday lunch wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

having eaten here a few weeks ago i went back for Sunday lunch and was amazed as it is only €20 for four courses i thought it would be of lesser quality than the evening menu boy was i wrong and very happy to be so the food and service is very very good
the choice was unreal 6 starters to choose from i had the smoked salmon with herb mouse really different but beautiful to start and the good lady had the wild mushroom and smoked bacon risotto divine the homemade breads are to die for

the mains followed in a timely manner and are top top class i don't think i have ever gotten a better Sunday lunch than this really !!!!!!!!!!

half roast duck with an orange sauce was crisp and moist faultless
and the stuffed leg of lamb was tender and tasty
for desert where was again a big choice the floating islands are a blast from the past and done very well light and airy and the panna cotta is as good as any Italian restaurant anywhere
i hope to return very very soon for the evening menu again im sure it wont be long
