I ate in the Dome with my family and had a wonderful experience! The food was gorgeous, the service exemplary and the uniqueness of the experience was really something else! Having the music set to our cheesy Christmas playlist and being warm and cosy while...the rain came down and hit the outside of the dome structure really elevated our meal to be a brilliant experience! What a way to catch up with Mom and Dad since before lockdown 2.0!! Definitely an experience I would recommend!!More

My friends and I dine in the new dome at the school house, everything was lovely, warm inside while being protected from the bad weather outside, you have the possibility to put your own music inside via a speaker that they provide. Really recommend.

Last night, had my favourite outdoor dining experience here of the last few months. We were so lucky to get a cancellation and a lovely warm heated table in a safe space with lovely friendly hard working staff. We never wanted for a drink or...any kind of service as the staff were so on the ball. Our meals were fabulous, the crab dish was prepared perfectly, not too overdressed with crispy bread, followed by a very tasty seafood linguine with great big chunks of fish and crab claws, the freshest prawns and salmon pieces. Linguine was not over dressed or too saucy. It was delicious, if this is my last meal out for weeks it couldn't have been better. My partner had these stuffed mushrooms and a beef burger and he was very happy too. Oh and the guinness was spot on :-)More

Beautiful cosy set up with fire heats and lots of blankets and other lovely touches. Food was good but what really stood out was the service. From the moment we arrived the service was so authentically warm, engaging, efficient. With Jane and the other staff...remembers being so attentive and anticipating our needs not just us but the other tables. I couldn't recommend it highly enough!More

We recently had a wedding celebration meal in the Schoolhouse restaurant. We were delighted with everything from start to finish. We had our own room and were welcomed warmly by Tom, who explained that Gena would be looking after us. The service, the food, the...atmosphere and everything in between exceeded our expectations. Gena and her team were exceptional in carrying out their duties, especially under the current circumstances. All guidelines were carried out and we felt safe at all times. We intend to return again such was the service and kindness shown by Gena.More

After a meeting in the Grand Canal Hotel, we strolled around the Corner for lunch at the Schoolhouse. Service was quick and efficient as we had the specials of the day. Busy pub/restaurant in that part of the city at lunchtime but the menu had...something for everyone and didn't disappoint. Would definitely return.More
