“Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I heard that the value in Parkers was very good so I taught it was worth a visit. The venue is a converted bungalow which was ok but I didnt feel the atmosphere in the restaurant was anything special.
I booked in for Sunday Lunch which I taught was part of the value meal of €20 for 3 courses per person. However on paying the bill I was told that it was the ala carte menu that we had picked from (only memu available at lunch time) - which I was disapointed with as it wasnt clear that it was at the time (hard to believe that eating during lunch is more expensive than eating in the evening!!!) The selection on the menu was ok nothing special jumped out with roast beef, chicken, salmon, pork and vegitarian option for mains.
If I had paid the €20 for what I got I would have been happy but for the price of the meal at ala carte prices it wasnt value for money. The waitress also informed me at the reception that the €20 pp 3 course meal has been increased to €22.00!

“Great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Was recently told by a friend about parkers and was told to book. I booked a table at least a month ahead of time for our wedding anniversary. We arrived on the night and without as much as a hello we were told "you were told that that table is for a reset at 8?", I replied no as we hadn't been and we weren't given any choice. This really did put a sour taste in our mouth as we felt rushed to eat our meal. Such a pity as the food was really lovely and the value of €22 for a 4 course menu with lots of choice. All the other staff were lovely and friendly and nice atmosphere.

“Best value around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

If in the area and you want excellent food at an affordable price then Parkers is for you. Renowned now for its excellence boking is essential. Service is friendly and efficient and while this is a busy restaurant there is no sense of being rushed. this is a perfect place to meet and children are welcome.

“Come Hungry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

On a recent trip to Tipp, we visited Parkers again (4 adults) did not book, but would recommend it, arrived on a Wednesday evening about 6 o'clock, we all had the 4 course meal for the unbeliveable €20 a head, I still dont know how they do it, I wish I lived in Holycross as I would visit at least once a week, we all enjoyed our meals which were very enjoyable, I recommend you come to this restaurant hungry as the food is plentyful, and the service is next to none, we will be back very soon
