The food here has been consistently good since it opened many years ago. It has won several awards for its pub food. Good to have a choice of local produce eg duck and chicken on the menu (and of course the Monaghan mushrooms!). Friendly staff. I had the seafood chowder to start: very welcome when the weather is cold. But the large cup it was served in was only half full: I could have done with a proper measure. It was accompanied by small pieces of baguette-style white bread. This should have been wholemeal home-made brown bread, in my view. The Silver Hill duck from Emyvale tasted very nice on a bed of mash and with plum sauce. Did not have any room for dessert: when we were given the menu the waitress said there was no cheesecake or chocolate dish, so the two best ones were not available anyway. Probably because they had had a good crowd for Sunday lunch. I noticed they had added a range of traditional Irish beers such as red ale to their drinks list, but I did not get the opportunity to taste any on this occasion.
