We had a lovely evening here and were very well looked after by Zeljko, who was happy to chat to us and make recommendations for what to eat. The food was excellent, not as heavy as I had feared it might be, and of very...high quality. We were here because there was an offer for hotel guests, but we will return tomorrow to try some of the other dishes on the menu too...More

Very good value and very good quality. Started with the local Guinness bread and followed it with the stew.

They were not busy and it was starting to get late but the service here was phenomenal and really friendly. The food was outstanding and that’s not even saying enough! My wife and I were not expecting it and left completely satisfied.

Not far from city center is a great bar and restaurant. You can dine in the bar area if you get there early or in the dinning room from 6:00 pm on. The menu is varied and they have some creative starters. The mains are...very well prepared. A very pleasant surprise, give it a try.More

Went in with my girlfriend yesterday evening. We ordered two starters, two mains , a dessert to share and a bottle of Merlot. Everything was absolutely perfect, Delicious and divine food, combined with really lovely wine, was worth to try it for the first time....Really professional staff member from Suffolk was looking after us. Sadly we haven't asked for his name! We might have a chance when we go in the next time, Because definitely we are coming back. Would recommend to friends or family.More

We were looking for somewhere quiet to eat as the pubs were full of people watching the world cup. I think the staff were not expecting any diners - as they seemed surprised we wanted to eat away from the TV and not really set...up for service. We had the 3 course meals for the adults - and off the menu for the kids. The meals were ok - but the portions were too big and would have been better to focus on quality than quantity - eg the roast already came with cabbage and mash, so didn't need potato bake, mashed sweet potato and overcooked (or frozen) green beans with it. Smaller portions of just the best parts would have been better for us - because we didn't end up even ordering our dessert. So - a good average meal but nothing to rave about.More

We ate in the bar recently, tired at the end of our trip to Ireland and just looking to have a good meal with a pint. Pleasantly surprised with the food, everything we had was tasty! Even better was the service manager Chris provided, we...came in at an odd time and he was still totally on point! Very friendly! Chatted and joked with us but still gave us the perfect amount of space to socialize in our own group. Highly recommend visiting Chris and his team!More

We had a family birthday and everything was lovely. From booking to the end was great. There was 19 of us for dinner and there was not one complaint with the food or service. Chris was brilliant on the night and couldn't have been more...helpful. The menu had a great selection and the service was excellent. It is in a good location and there is on street parking nearby.More
