We have been to the playwright on numerous occasions and on our most recent visits it's been disappointing. The staff are the biggest disappointment. We were greeted at the door and I stated we had a reservation for 7pm and was told then we were 10minutes late which didn't seem to matter as we still ended up waiting to be... More

The Playwright is close to the A7. It doesn't look much as you drive by but inside you receive a warm welcome from mainly Irish staff. The decor and ambience is excellent. The restaurant was full for Sunday lunch. Starters all pleased especially the seafood starter. The pork belly was the best main. Lamb shank was a little dry although... More

Been here before so knew what to expect. Atmosphere good, quality of food excellent. I had turkey and trimmings and it was served in a most unusual way. Excellent presentation. Wine choice of high quality. Well done to all the staff. Sometimes places rush the Xmas lunch so they can get home themselves. That was not the case here. See... More

A difficult day for the restaurant due to horrendous weather that morning but they coped very well and the serving staff were great. However, during Sunday lunch is it really necessary to have a singer interrupting your conversations with your lunch friends. She was lovely and had a great voice but it really is unnecessary. Also, the vegetables could have... More

As you will have noticed from the many great reviews we receive our reputation is indeed excellent and so we are very disappointed to read that you felt the food was under par. As you said due to the local flooding and related stresses we were working under difficult circumstances. We do advertise that we have live entertainment on Sundays... More
