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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What lovely staff. We visited here before the theatre drawn in by their parking and outdoor seating. We encountered three bar staff as we ordered and received our meal and each one so friendly and just so personable. I paid for our meal as I...ordered it as we were sitting outside ,as our plates were being cleared we decided to have a coffee ,another member of staff ,slightly more mature but equally friendly ,brought us our coffees and when I went to pay they said that it was on the house. What a lovely experience,we will definitely return. To the owners your staff are a credit to you .More

Was in today, we eat in here every so often and its always lovely but today was SHOCKING! If we werent starving we wouldve just walked out. Didnt want to complain to the waitresses as they seemed new and were actually lovely. Boyfriends burger was...luke warm, he got the wrong chips and when they brought out the new plate there was barely any on it and half of the chips on his plate were raw. My fajitas were meant to be vegan but I was given sour cream on the side, also it didnt come out presented how it normally does. It wasnt hot and tasted like someone half cooked some vegetables in a tin of tomatoes and threw it in a dish! Usually when we eat here the food is always amazing! The chef today clearly wasnt bothered... worst thing was, it wasnt even busy when we were in. The pints were lovely and so was all the staff, shame the food was so bad!More

We stayed for a few days in letterkenny and on our last night we decided to eat in the Orchard Inn. We heard good things about it. When we arrived the guy that seemed to be the head waiter came over to us and asked...our booking name and off he went, we didn't know whether to follow him or not until he came back and beckoned us. There was certainly no greeting in it for us. He sat us at our table and off he was again, no menus or cutlery at the table. When our food arrived it was decent but we had a hard job tracking down any staff as they were rushing about. No one asked was everything OK etc. After our meal the place was packed and it was then we realised that we were basically sitting in the laps of others with about a 30cm gap certainly no 2 metre distance and every other table in the place was the exact same. I even witnessed the waiter bringing people to a table that had not been cleaned down or sanitised between other customers and with that we got out of there. Probably won't be back to be honest.More

Call in with my girlfriend while traveling back from Donegal for a bite of Lunch. Secured an outside table as weather was beautiful. I had chicken carbonara which was delicious at only $15 Euros with great tasting chicken and sauce. My partners Chicken Curry was...$15 Euros 1/2 & 1/2 with a surcharge of $1.50 which I though was strange. Gordons & Tonic was $6.50 Sparkling Water was $3.00 My total bill came to $45.90 Barman overcharged me for Pint Of Bud $4.90 which I never asked for or received I just paid the bill and did not notice until I traveled home some 90 miles later. If owner wishes to check this receipt number 475925 on 15th Aug 2020 @ 2.20pm. It was my fault for not checking Bill but I hate to be ripped off by the barman not the Waitress. Toilets where spotless.More

Ate here with my partner and my son. Couldn't fault the food at all, had the chicken wings for starters and burgers for mains. Reasonably priced, good portions and tasty, five stars for the food. However, I don't think I've ever felt as unwelcome in...a place as I did here! Maybe they just don't trust people from Dublin. Our server was nice but the other staff we dealt with seemed to think we might take off with the cutlery!More

We went in here for a Sunday lunch. I’m always amazed at how staff maintain patience with small children running around there dining rooms. The staff in the Orchard nailed it! We had misplaced a gift voucher which only became obvious when we went to...settle the bill. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful, particularly the older white haired man who fixed the problem. Well done, we’ll be back!More

Myself and a friend visited one evening for a quick bite. We were both hungry and ordered off the normal menu. When the meal arrived the portions were quite small even though the prices were not. My friend who has a small appetite even commented...she was still hungry. We ordered curry and rice and the rice portion was small. It was nice however but who wants to leave feeling they want more.More
