Went here for Sunday lunch and not our first visit. If you want value for money, then the hunters rest is the place to go. Sunday lunch, three course meal with tea/coffee €17.50 each. That is a set menu and they have a different menu if you fancy something else. I have tried that menu and the selection is first... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Whilst the décor of the restaurant is nothing spectacular, and the food is not served in any fancy way, the 3 course meals which are served here on a Sunday are excellent and the cost of same is €17.50 which is unbelievable value for money. Starter, main and desert plus tea/coffee for under €20.00... More

If you want a substantial meal of consistent quality, you can't beat the Hunters. They have a large menu and the pints are good too.

A pleasant place to drop in to for a pint and something to eat. The menu is fairly traditional and offers a square meal meal at a reasonable cost. Popular with all ages.

The Hunters rest is not fine dining but it offers good food at very reasonable prices. The place is always busy but the service is always prompt. They have a huge menu with a wide variety of food to suit everybody and as other reviewers said you certainly will not leave the place hungary as the portions are huge.

Well impressed with the food here. It was packed out the door but we were seated quickly and there was no delay with our order being taken. The food was absolutely delicious. It was presented very well and good portion size. Staff were friendly and prices very reasonable!
