Good food, not exceptional by any means for the prices. Really over priced unless you're on the early bird menu. Service good but not great. After spending 180 euro for a meal we were told we couldn't have tea or coffee because the coffee machine was broken. Had to be prompted that an old fashioned kettle might do the trick. Wasn't impressed. Also very quick to arrive with the bill and inform us they were closing. Had anticipated a visit for quite a while but must say all four of us were dissappointed both with our food, the lack of customers and therefore atmosphere for a Thursday night and the lacklustre service. The pub grub is good and it's lovely for lunch. Early bird menu looks like a good deal but haven't eaten that. But overall, it ranks a little bit down the list of Wexford Restaurants.

We stayed in Wexford for the weekend at the beginning of June and we booked restaurants for both nights based on trip advisor reviews. We came here for the first night. The menu read very well and promised a lot. Unfortunately, even though the food was nice, it didn't quite live up to expectations. These high expectations were also based on the high price of the food. Both my husband and I had the Wicklow baun cheese followed by the fillet steak. In the case of the cheese, it was described as having a walnut crust, in reality there was a minimal amount of walnuts in sight. It was tasty but just not quite as nice as it could have been. The steaks were good but not really worth the money. We shared a dessert of the choux bun and it was yummy. The waiting staff could not have been nicer or more helpful and really made the meal.

Great restaurant, lovely setting, excellent, friendly staff. Only popped in for lunch but was so good, huge portions! 1 sandwich enough for 2 people. Portions very big from what I saw other people getting! You need to be hungry. Would definitely return.
