“Cosy, intimate, friendly, good service”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have visited the Lamplight Restaurant in Ashbourne a few times now and we always receive good attentive service. The ambience is spot on, the lighting is just right and the service is wonderful. It is a cosy, intimate, friendy restaurant that is suitable for couples, families or group meals with friends. The food is always good and the wine is always just right. We go there time and time again and have never come away thinking any negative thoughts. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Our favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We visited here on our honeymoon and could not fault it one iota. The meal was a gastronomic delight, with a great portion size that just filled you up perfectly. The set menu was excellently priced and the whole experience was so good that we went back in December :)

“Lunch this time”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Called for lunch this time ,a very very wet horrible day, arrived around 1pm, only two tables taken
quickly seated,drinks orderd ,. A very good lunch menu,we chose onion soup and vegitable roll for the starters,mains ,we both went for the spinach pancake,what a fantastic flavour ,all served with a mountain of very fresh vegitables,I forgot to mention the bread rolls are very fresh ,and not red hot having just come out of a microwave as per usual in some restaurants. The place is now full with tables of two and four and a large party of ten,and the thing is, all being served by one waiter,who showed no panick or fluster,even when I asked a question regarding the meal took time to answer my inquiry . Last time we called for Dinner,which was excellent , and the lunch was on a par with it.
Would we return? you bet we will. An after thought ,I always think a good sign of a clean Resaurant is the loos they are spotless

This restaurent is in the centre of Ashbourne. It offers good food with excellent service in a historic location. Highly recommended whether a visitor or a local.

“Traditional good standard”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Short but balanced menu. Traditional but well done. Sometimes under staffed, but I've never had a meal here that's been less than very satisfactory.
