“Fabulous service and food”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

The service at the hotel and restaurant is second to none! I was in town only for the morning with my partner for his work. It was his 40th bday and I wanted a nice place for lunch. Rachel at the front desk was beyond helpful with answering questions about the menu, directing me to the breakfast lounge where I could have tea and work for the morning and then organising dessert with a candle! Not to mention the food was excellent! The steak pie pastry was the best I've had. Thanks to all of you for your help in having a great meal and experience!

“Best Risotto in town!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I was seriously impressed with the quality of the food, the customer service from the waiting staff and the general atmosphere in the restaurant. We had the early bird meal last night (Saturday 19 April) in the bar area. The only drawback was that we were placed at the side door where people have to walk around our table to come in and out if the smoking area but everything else was superb. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and I would definitely recommend opting for the early bird. The smoked salmon and asparagus risotto was probably the best risotto I have ever eaten and even their ice cream was remarkable!

The Risotto is a fantastic dish especially with Irish Asparagus being at its peak seasonally. We look forward to having you back.

Thank you for trying our Chowder, one of the few dishes that has been on the menu since we opened our doors in 2005. The Guinness pairs up nicely with it also. Thank you for your kind comments. We look forwarad to your return.
