What a special room for a 5 course meal. The victorian decor and period antique furniture give expectations for a fine meal. We were not disappointed in our dinner meal and service - breakfast was equally as pleasant. Gentlemen MUST wear a jacket for dinner...More

The food was good but the portions were absurdly small and you left the restaurant almost feeling abused. My wife ordered gnocchi and received all of 5 pieces. Don’t waste your time or your money, it is not worthy of the Ashford Castle experience.More

There is only one menu with just 4 or 5 choices for each course. This is the menu for both guests and those who are only dining there.

Description
The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
