The dilemma is I am reluctant to knock this place. They have made a significant investment in a rural area, and right now everyone who is prepared to spend deserves to be supported. The decor and furnishings are top class, befitting a centre city pub in Dublin. Clearly from the notice board in the entrance lobby, the pub is a focal point and a hub in this community.
But why the extensive and too ambitious menu. To provide the choice on offer, fresh food cannot back up this menu. And so our meal disappointed on that level only.
Cooked from frozen tempura prawns, wings for starters, and roast sirloin of beef for mains. The beef was cold cut reheated and immersed in red wine gravy. I saw the steaks going out and could only look on with envy.
Choose wisely, go for fresh cooked dishes ie steak, cutlets(if on menu) and its fine.
My advice to Whytes would be to have a full review of whats on offer, less in more, and cook all menu from fresh. The surroundings, decor etc deserves better.
