Family visit we all had the burger. Burger with chips 17 euro. ( bit dear) Amazing feed. Kids meal was cheap and includes drink and ice cream which was massive with all the toppings.
Handy to Tayto park and homely wee spot. Give it a go.

This is a nice pub with plenty of character but overpriced for the average food. Frozen chips and burgers that have been bought, not prepared. I had the burger with bacon. It was a strip of streaky bacon which was more fat than meat and made the burger a chore to eat, trying as I was, to avoid the stringy pieces of fat. This food is just cheap ingredients combined to fit a description on the menu. No thought, skill or care were involved in making this meal.The cost to buy the same standard ingredients in a supermarket would be €2-3, they charged €16.95. I will never eat here again.

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!

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.
