I've eaten there a few times on Saturdays recently. Definitely Above average food - standard roasts etc that are just that bit better than most. Recommend the great club sandwich. Decent coffee too. If they have the mushroom soup on HAVE IT!

Absolutely beautiful old style setting with a modern twist inside spotlessly clean with outstanding and friendly service I can't remember what the girls name was. It she was a blonde haired girl who... More

Been to this restaurant so many times before and never lets me down. A very cozy and atmospheric restaurant with a nice Christmas feel to it on the night in December that I ate here. Staff friendly, the bread for the soup one of the best I eaten with my soup, main course which was chicken was tasty. Highly recommended.

Went here with family (3 young kids) for Sunday lunch. The staff and owner are friendly and very helpful as we didn't have a reservation. Didn't like that we could only order full four course as its difficult enough to get kids to eat one so this made it rather expensive. Starter and main course were very nice but pavlova... More

I visited this restaurant many years ago and I thought it was terrible. I heard that it had improved and so my husband and I decided to give it another try. The food is mediocre at best. I ordered crème brûlée for desert and I have no idea what they served me. It was a thick dense vanilla ? pudding... More

Called in on the of chance and staff were very helpful and accommodating. Four course set menu for €50, a good few options on the menu and the pasta dish I had for a main course was divine. Husband enjoyed his roast beef but did say vegetables were overcooked. Desserts were lovely and we would return.

Me and my boyfriend are here recently, food was ok nothing to rave about. Restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and staff are very nice and polite. Having said that I wouldn't eat here again my boyfriends steak was over done and my curry was tasteless. The desert menu is very basic and my desert was very poor
