Just enjoyed the most wonderful Sunday Lunch with my family. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The homemade Apple Crumble is absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to go back. My favourite place in New Ross 😀

Went for lunch with family ordered warm chicken salad it arrived with big lumps of deep fried bread rolls which I was told was croutons. The bacon was cheap and there was bottled sweetchilli sauce poured all over salad. The lady in charge was very...loud while she was helpful she was really mean to her staff it meant we felt very uncomfortable. It is very over priced better places in town with similar pricesMore

Visited this establishment following a day trip with family, based on the Tripadvisor rating. Staff were friendly but clearly more staff needed to cater properly. The food was fine, but not fantastic as many reviews would lead us to believe. Our kids enjoyed their pizzas...though. The biggest issue however was the cleanliness. The toilet (there is just one) was not clear, and the toilet brush was absolutely caked in dirt from usage. There were also a lot of flies in the restaurant, and the floor in the cafe was dirty (probably from a long day of usage). Also, my wife's wine arrived in a dirty cup.More

Passing through New Ross we decided to go for a bite and were pleasantly surprised when we ended up in Ann McDonalds cafe. We got a friendly welcome, and they were taking all the proper procedures regarding the Covid-19 rules. I'm celiac and find it...hard to find small cafe's that I can eat in, but pretty much everything on the menu was gluten-free! Not only that, it was delicious and freshly cooked! Would reccomend 10 out of 10 and will definitely be back to try out more of the menu.More

Myself and my wife and daughter Dined here this evening and we were not disappointed. The minute you walked in the door you were made feel very much at home and relaxed. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was excellent. The menu...has a wide variety of tasty foods and all dishes we ordered were perfectly cooked. If you like to spoil yourselves with dessert then get the chocolate fudge cake lol, it’s savage. I would highly recommend this eatery and it’s also fantastic value. Conor from malahide.More
