“Another good dinner”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Had dinner here last night. Had chicken skewers for starters while hubbie had soup - in fairness I've had better chicken skewers. Hubbie said soup was lovely. I had lamb shank (devine) and hubbie had steak (he declared it to be better than a recent steak in the Wineport) I had raspberry & white chocolate cheese cake - very nice. Hubbie had apple pie - also very nice. We had a nice bottle of rose and will be back. Incidentally we had the nicest waitress I've experienced in a long time.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Ate here on Friday night and really enjoyed it. The waiting staff were excellent and the food was delicious. I ordered soup as a starter, steak as a main and cheesecake as a dessert. The steak was cooked perfectly and came with onion rings, chips and salad. There was loads in the main course alone and I struggled to finish all the food. I will be eating here again.

“A nice simple Dinner”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had dinner here last weekend with Hubbie. Nice crowd. Excellent service. Menu not too exciting but food very good. I had chowder and hubbie had chicken wings for starters. We had 10 oz steak for mains which was served with onion rings, chips and salad. For dessert I had Bailey's cheesecake (yum) and hubbie had apple pie. We had a voucher for the main courses so this was a cheap night as starters and dessert are around €5 each.
