Good morning all on this freeing Monday morning,
i just wanted to both praise and promote THE CENTRAL in Navan, after a long trip back from Kerry after my uncles funeral we stopped of at THE CENTRAL in navanfor something to eat. What a love...ly contrast to walk into a lovely warm and inviting restaurant from the bitter wind outside. The embience was so inviting with warmth and lovely cheery staff. We ave eaten there before but only in the front bar area
Even though it was six on a busy Sunday evening the staff were really helpful and in particular one called Enda, wish they had name badges on as I felt embarassed by asking him his name. As i do have history within the service industry I do tend to be a bit crtical of places where we eat (habits die hard ha). The specials were highlighted to us and were indeed varied which is refreshing to hear as many restaurants stick to tired and outdated specials. The service was prompt and courteous, food was served piping hot and presentation great, may i highly recommend the pok and duck noodles (flavours were exceptional) and my partner had chicken and we laughed whn he commented that it actually had tasted like chicken. Most places just overcook or add flavours to a lovely piece of chicken and forget about the lovely basic taste of a piece of meat. no desserts but a lovely complimentary coffee just needed ha.
prices were reasonable and having a family this place is really family orientated with a lovely seperate kids menu ( i may bring my children next time if they behave themselves over Easter ha).
I have to take this opportunity to thank the owner Michael Gavigan and his wife Tara for having the fortitude and ability to make a hard service industry look easy. In this current climate its not easy to make a living but i do hope that all yor hard work and endevours pay of for you. Next stop for me is THE BECTIVE, in kells which Michael and Tara als run and as a local person myself I will promote these businesses and wish them all the best for the future.
People are far to quick to judge and moan about value for money and bad food and service but please if you are paying good money thaat we have all earned for a nice meal please give praise for a good meal and service as well, it really boosts peoples moral and highlights nice places to go and enjoy
