“Highly recommended!! ”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Over the last few months, I have become a regular to the Snail Box. The food is extremely tastey and I have now being there quite a few times and can honestly say I never once had a bad meal!! I have tried a number of options on there menu and each of them has being top notch! The service and staff in the resteraunt are extremely helpful and friendly which creates and provides a very welcoming atmosphere.
The snail box is well situated just of the main road just a bit outside north side of Ashbourne town and has plenty of space for parking.
I honestly can highly recommend this place to anyone who hasn't tried it and I have already adviced a number of family and friends to go there from my past good experiences. Keep up the good work Snail Box!

“This place caps everything”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

Managed to get a table without prior booking and had an excellent meal. Brilliant steak but the "pepper sauce" obviously came out of a packet. Very good wine list at a reasonable price. I guess the breakfast will just as good and will certainly book a room next time I am in the area.

“Great food”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

I went to the snail box for a family outing we needed to book it as the restaurant is always really busy but there's a reason for this the food is amazing every dish that my family ordered was spot on no one complained about anything. Some of the food is a bit costly but overall it's worth it
