Just had a great experience at Orchids, perfect setting, service and really good food. From start to finish the food was better than expected. The menu provided a really good choice and variety, it met our needs. The young lady serving us was very pleasant and efficient with good interaction. Piano in background also helped create the perfect atmosphere. While... More

This is the place if you want to bring the special person in your life to dinner. Food was excellent and a great choice on the menu. Waiting staff again were excellent. Pianist in the background is a lovely touch. Restaurant was busy but was never rushed. Great selection of fine wines.

Ate here with my husband. Lovely decor & lightubg. The menu was a little different which was nice. Service was second to none with lovely touches like waiters lifting lids off main course plates. Amuse Bouche served & an exquisite coconut & Malibu sorbet. Devine! My lamb main course was excellent as was my husbands venison. Desert choices didn't excite... More

If you are looking for something a little more upscale than Perrotts, the Orchids restaurant is a wonderful choice. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast there.

Wonderful food, and a very fine wine list. We ate at Orchids three times on a three day stay, need I say any more?

Five of us had afternoon tea here in between Christmas and New Year - such a lovely way to spend an afternoon, into evening. We were treated to beautiful cakes, pastries, scones and fresh sandwiches and endless tea served in beautiful pots. Highly recommend.

The most incredible food and service. We were bowled over. The attention to detail couldn't be overlooked. From the attentive serving staff to the mouthwatering food; everything was exquisite. I had the scallops and beef while my fiancé had the quail and lamb. He said the quail was full of flavour and was the most incredible dish ever. The extra... More

Visited Hayfield as I had an hour or so to pass in cork. Lovely decorating for Christmas. Sat in the small room where they serve afternoon tea. Not one member of staff came near me to ask if I would like to order anything as I sat there for a full hour! Not what I would expect from 5 star... More
