The Orchard House is real local with excellent food at a good price with excellent hospitality. Parents could relax over a meal in the family lounge while the children are pre-occupied inthe outdoor play area. A regular visitor to the fine cuisine and sports bar.

I really like Orchard House. They have really nice food, good portions, something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable. Kids bowls free. Little playground at the back keeps the kids happy. All staff really nice and efficient. Interior is welcoming and warm. Recommended!

The staff here is superb and friendly. A little outside of town, but it is a good location with large car park. I often come for a drink or for lunch.The food is so reasonable, a large rack of ribs served with salad and chips for only €6.50! The only downside is that outside seating is not heated.

The quality of food and level of service belies the humble location. A little outside of town but easily found it is a good location for a comfortable drink or a satisfying bite to eat.

9 of us sat down to breakfast on Sunday morning. The restaurant is clean and airy, nice and bright with comfortable seating. Our orders were taken quickly, the staff friendly and chatty. Big mugs of coffee and a huge pot of tea were presented. The breakfasts arrived in reasonable time, everything seemed to be cooked to order. The food itself... More
