Friendly staff, delicious food. We enjoyed the early bird menu and for a small amount extra got a couple of cinema tickets. A good deal.

Third time to visit this restaurant and enjoyed it every single time so thought it about time to write a review. Limited menu more than made up for by the quality of the contents. I don't drink wine but they have some craft beers well worth tasting. Black & White Pudding starter beyond belief. Main courses to suit most people... More

Stylish decor, limited menu, but still something for everyone. Love the fact that the team take such pride in the provenance of their food. The quality really shone through. Fabulous scallops, succulent steaks and melt in the mouth pulled pork. Everything is beautifully presented without being pretentious. Love the fact that the quality also extends right down to the fries,... More

What a great idea; great food on the early bird menu combined with a visit to movies at gorey; two courses and the cinema for €25; tremendous value from one of Gorey's best!

Nice food but limited menu. The steak was perfectly cooked and the pesto mash was without pesto. The prawns starter was fantastic. The haddock & fries were very nice. The ice cream selection for dessert was ok but maybe should have one signature ice cream (something different like salted caramel or fudge etc)

My wife and I called in on a Friday evening without a reservation, this was not a problem and we were seated and served without fuss, the girl who looked after us was very friendly and the food was excellent. We tried the Kilkenny Medieval cider which was slightly different, but really nice. A very enjoyable unplanned evening, we will... More
