Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is simply amazing. I tried the Apple and Blue Cheese salad and the Signature Steak on the Stone and I think it is one of the best meals of my life. I went with a coworker one Tuesday and I couldn’t believe it...so had to come again two days later with 3 other coworkers and we all confirmed it! The sorbet was super tasty, the wine was also good, we all liked everything we had. Lovely!More

One of the best surprises I've had in a long time! We ate in here on a Tuesday night, we were hungry, it was raining, and we ducked in to see if they had a table. It was so cosy and the staff were welcoming....We each had a starter, one prawns and one crab. We both decided to go for the burger and I can say it is possibly the best burger I ever had. I really wanted to give dessert a go but couldn't find room. Next time for sure. The sign outside just doesn't suit the hidden gem that is inside. Give this place a go, it won't disappoint.More

Lovely customer service, and good coffee. However for the price point, the menu was misleading. Ordered the waffles and despite the description saying they came with maple syrup, they actually came with golden syrup. Additionally, the ‘berries and vanilla cream’ waffles were served with cream...from a spray can, disappointing as one would expect freshly whipped cream. In short, food does not reflect the price.More

We were down in clonmel for a dog show so had just googled places to eat. When we saw the bunker we thought we would give it a try. They were so accommodating even though they were busy. The staff were all super friendly and...the food was so delicious. We both especially loved the baked alaska. So nice to have a different desert from all the usual options. If we are ever in Clonmel again we will definitely be backMore

Treated my daughter to breakfast to mark her summer holidays. The service was absolutely fantastic. I loved my breakfast. My daughter who has autism and is a very very fussy eater didn't like hers. As soon as the staff noticed this they took it away...and got her something off menu that she liked. They wouldn't take any money for the dish she didn't like. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Delicious food and beautifully cooked. Excellent service, our waitress couldn’t have been any more accommodating. Dinner, dessert and a bottle of wine was so reasonably priced.

Visited this evening for my Mum’s actual birthday and my (missed due to Covid last year) birthday. This is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten in, fab food (especially “steak on the stone”), lovely, friendly, nothing too much trouble. Last visited with extended...family in 2019 and it’s just as good now as it was then. If you live near Clonmel you have to go here, it’s wonderful!!More

Hi Bridget, I am not the owner of the restaurant, I just eat there. If you ring them direct, I am sure they will accommodate you. The restaurant is excellent.
