“A road-side pub with good food”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The Coolquoy Lodge is just off the old N2 Navan road. It's a pub/restaurant with ample parking. Four of us had dinner here last night and enjoyed the experience. I had the sizzling beef and I can’t complain about it. The beef was very tender and the sauce was tasty. All of our party were happy with their food even if they weren't jumping up and down with the wow factor. Service was a bit slow although the staff were quite friendly. I can't comment on the price as I was being treated to a meal out. All in all I'd go again and I have no problem recommending it.

“Bad bread at the Coolquoy”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

In the past, this was a very good and inexpensive pub/restaurant. Unfortunately, it has gone downhill in its selection and presentation of food, but the prices have rocketed. How difficult can it be to present breaded mushrooms, or crab claws, or even children's sausages and chips? Well, the Coolquoy can, and did, get it wrong on all these counts in regard to presentation, taste and price. And that is even before looking at the quite limited menu with prices that are certainly not limited. And that is a great pity because with the relatively pleasant service (forgetting that drinking water was not made available without having to ask), this could be a great pub/restaurant. After many years of going to the Coolquoy, all I can say is: never again. One family lost - how many more before they cop themselves on?

“Standard Lunch Fare”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Very average standard old fashioned lunch. We went on a Sunday and it was very ordinary and a little disappointing.

“Great food & friendly staff”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

I eat here quite often with family & friends & have never had any problems. The food quality & service is consistently good & the staff are very nice & friendly. The steak is what I usually have, it's big & reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area.
Overall I would recommend the coolquay to anyone & everyone. You won't be sorry.
