“Birthday Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We were invited to join my couisin and her friends to celebrate her birthday with a meal. When we arrived we spent almost 40mins admiring the flower displays at the entrance which were absolutely beautiful and a credit to the grower. We were led to our table and the staff couldn do enough for us, my 12yr old daughter was with me and she is a typical fussy pre teen and they offered any amount of variations to make sure she was satisfied with her choice. Our own meal was mouth watering and left us wanting to lift the plates and lick them! From the attentive staff, the flavoursome food, floral displays and atmosphere this is most definately a top class retaurant.

“Lovely family lunch ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

We went to scholars for the first time on bank holiday Monday. We've lived in bettystown for years and have driven by this place many times but Monday was our first experience. And we thoroughly enjoyed it. Very friendly welcoming staff. Warm family atmosphere. Food was yummy and very nicely presented. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch menu for €25 which was great value. Staff were very attentive even though it was busy.

One disappointing thing came at the end - my dessert. The sticky toffee pudding. Described amazingly on the menu - steamed pudding with rum and dates. It was a good pudding but had no toffee sauce at all. It came with cream and icecream but it needed a thick toffee sauce. It was quite dry without it

Otherwise it was great. We really enjoyed it and will definitely be returning. I've already recommended it to two friends.

Thank you for your comments, I also agree with the comments in regard to the sticky toffee pudding, a thick toffee sauce would improve the dish. Thank you for your feedback.

“Gorgeous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

Had dinner here for a 50th birthday celebration. From start to finish, the staff went that extra mile to make it a really enjoyable evening. Food, staff and atmosphere all great and lovely cosy bar to finish off the evening - gorgeous!

“Great menu & friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely family meal here. We have been previously and eaten in both the bar and formal restaurant. We recently dined in the bar, the menu had an excellent variety, our food was outstanding. The staff were friendly and on the ball with service and felt genuinely interested in how our evening was. Well done guys n gals. Highly recommend.
