Visited the Spinnaker with my partner on Sunday and had the pleasure of trying their Sunday three course deal. The food was fantastic, I had the goats cheese salad for starter. It was presented beautifully with pine nuts sprinkled on top. There was a pesto oil drizzled over the top that complimented the cheese fantastically. I then had the fish... More

We had a dinner for my Dads 70th birthday in the Spinnaker tonight. We all had a fantastic meal and everyone's opinion was that it was a fantastic evening, all thanks to Niall and his team. The Spinnaker has such accommodating staff who help make the place so inviting and Niall himself couldn't be more of a gentleman. The food,... More

Had a lovely relaxing meal by the fire in the Spinnaker on Sunday evening January 22nd. We were given excellent service as usual by friendly attentive staff. Meal was lovely and reasonably priced. I had their fish pie which was absolutely delicious and reason enough to return again. Well worth a visit.

First of all may I say, I couldn't fault the attentiveness of the staff. Really friendly and welcoming. Plus the atmosphere was cosy, with it's warm open stove. 3 of us went in, with the intention of trying some of their Fish & Chips. According to reviews, this place was the best around. First of all, we almost changed our... More

Dear Dawn We are sorry the spinnaker did not impress your taste or budget / thankfully this is not the norm at the spinnaker. Please see other reviews. The last time someone complained about our fish n chips on trip advisor was 10 years ago I believe, I remember it well as he was vivacious in his comments. It is... More

I wrote a review about The Spinnaker some months back having had an exceptional dining experience with my wife. Recently it was my daughter's birthday and decided to ask the owner if we could hold her party there. Niall was very accommodating and gave us the use of the back area of the premises exclusively. With 30+ 6 year olds,... More

Had a fantastic meal in The Spinnaker this weekend. Usual high standard of food and service. Staff were very accommodating to us and our three small children who are a handful! Never a problem for any special requests. We love the cosy casual pub atmosphere. When we visit Dunmore East we won't go past it. Keep up the good work... More
