“Fabulous Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

arrived for dinner at 5 with four friends...service with a smile and food to die for. I had smoked pork for starter and lamb for mains. (although was a little sad when i saw my friends steak!) but sure i would say every meal here would be delicious.

We will definitely be back even if it is just for your smoked eel barley risotto - stunning and flavorsome.

Stopped here recently for a break on a long drive. Had really well-presented delicious food and the service was top notch. It is well worth a stop - there should be one in every town in Ireland!
