Not good for Celiacs
Jul 2021 • Family
My husband and I dined here along with our two year old son. My husband is a celiac and usually has no issue with menus as most places cater very well for people with allergies. Not true for this place unfortunately. Firstly, even though everything on the menu had numbers alongside them, there was no key as to what the numbers meant. He asked and was told that 1 meant gluten. Every single thing on the menu except one a salad had a 1 beside it. Not even the chips were gluten free. The only thing he could have was the special (stripped almost bare to avoid gluten, yet still charged over €20 for it)
What I had was fine, no issues. But in this day and age when most places have all sauces/gravy GF and wheat free options for burgers etc it seemed a little like a poor effort. There was very little attempt made to accommodate him. It’s the only place to eat in Dromineer and it could be a lot better.

The Whiskey Still has a special character and serves good food.

The food is not Haute Cuisine, but after a day on the lake the fish and chips are just what i want, served nicely. They serve a good pint of Guinness which is an ideal partner to the fish and chips. On the evening we were there, some of our friends had to eat in the smoking tent which was cold and draughty.
the place can generate a great atmosphere when there is a crowd there- and they do increase staff numbers when they expect a crowd.
There is hardly any view of the lake from here.

Great food and staff
Aug 2019 • Couples
We visit here on a regular basis. The food is so tasty. The Whiskey Still is well known for the food and good service in the area. Joe the chef, his wife Rita and their manager Colin run a really good show. The staff are always so friendly and efficient. Last time I had the smoked salmon and prawn starter, my husband had the garlic mushrooms, he had a steak for main course and I had fish and chips. The food was just amazing and always is, we were hungry and we enjoyed every morsel. We love the food, it’s just so good. We have never been disappointed. In fact I’d question anybody who would give a negative review of this place. The place could do with a bit of an upgrading, both toilets in particular and it may be time to change the place mats, some of them are in a bit of a state but otherwise things are just perfect!

Good Food - Not Good if you have Kids
Jan 2019 • Family
The food was all good. It’s nothing amazing, but good, hearty food. Our server was friendly. That being said, we were trying to order when our 1-year-old started crying. A lady from behind the bar came over and told us we could take him outside if we needed to and we thanked her and said ok. Then I continued to order while my wife directed one of our other children to take our baby outside. Before our child could stand up, the same lady behind the bar rushed over, opened the door, and told us to take our baby outside before we had the time to get out the door. It was quite rude. This set the tone for our entire meal. I don’t think I’ve ever rated a restaurant this low for service, and I’ve rated a lot of restaurants.

If you have young children, they aren’t very welcomed here. If it’s all adults, this place isn’t bad. It’s a cozy pub inside.

Lovely Place

Recently visited the Whiskey Still on a balmy May evening. We had rang earlier to book a table for 4 in the restaurant but it was booked fully but we were offered a table in the bar. We had a wonderful evening with lovely food and drink.

Great setting

If you can forgive the slightly cramped and dark interior this is definitely a lovely place to eat and envibe. The food is great and if it's a nice day the decking area and view are the best things to enjoy while your palette is being gratified.
