Hi YvetteOB Thank you for your review. We're thrilled to hear you had a lovely anniversary celebration in Statham's! Please accept our apologies again for the mix-up with the steaks. Kind regards Edel

The food served was standard Irish fare, no fanfare, but acceptable. Though with so many offerings in the area, a trek through the town street will bring you to any number of eateries.

Our unique cocktail menu has a sparkling of ingenuity, a measure of creativity and a splash of inspiration from our 1930s racing heritage. The menu is curated by international award-winning mixologist Darren Geraghty.
