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.

We had a family meal at the wishing well. Everything was great on the day. Food was good. The lady that looked after us was nice and attentive. We were seated in the large room downstairs which is ideal for family functions. Nice open air...section at the back which we hadn't seen before.More

We were very much looking forward to this visit, BUT...anything that could go wrong DID go wrong... 😔 Delay between taking our drinks order and order for Starter was about 20 minutes...a precursor?? Delay between Starter and Main was about 45 minutes !! Crazy We...ordered a bottle of water 💧 about 4 times before it arrived Food arrived - Ribs on Chicken Breast- chips hot, corn hot, Ribs lukewarm, Chicken so overcooked it didn't bend To top our evening, we were brought someone else's bill when it came to money time So very disappointing....More

This restaurant was fine for lunch but the toilets need to be cleaned and the water pressure needs attention -it was impossible to wash your hands.

It was my first time here and i couldn't believe how busy it was for a Sunday afternoon. We had to wait a few mins for a table but it was worth the wait. The food was really yummy. I had goats cheese starter, salmon...main course and a pavlova dessert. Real good homemade food. The portion sides was a very big which was great but not great for the waistline!! Defo be back.More

Ate here with me girlfriend a short time ago, the food was decent but nothing special. We arrived at the restaurant and upon arrival we were invited to wait at the bar as our table was just being prepared, "oh how convenient" I thought to...myself. After a short wait we were shown to our table. The staff were very friendly it must be said. My girlfriend got soup to start and the burger for main course, I also got the burger for main course. I tasted the soup and it was delicious however the burger was uninspiring, it was rather dry and dare I say tasteless. Once we finished our main courses we were considering whether or not to have a dessert, "oh go on then" I eventually decided. I ordered the cheesecake. After a short wait the waitress approached our table with chocolate cake and ice cream "hold on, no I'm not have this, no no no no", I said, she soon realized the error of her ways and brought the chocolate to it's rightful table. Shortly after that I did get my cheesecake and it was below my expectations as was my visit to this restaurant in general.More

We arrived around 8pm on a Friday evening to a warm welcome and lively atmosphere. We order drinks at the bar and checked if there were any tables left for dinner. Luckily, there was one table left. There were plenty of attentive staff who served...for the evening. We opted for the 3 course set menu for €28.00 which was extremely good value. We sampled and can recommend the chicken wings, salmon and desserts. There are plenty of side dishes on offer. Cannot recommend enough service perfect, food delicious..... a great evening. Thank you to all the staff.More

Fabulous food, fabulous staff, really went out of their way to make us welcome. I'd pre booked for a large group of us the night before our wedding and they gave us a lovely table with complimentary bubbles, a lovely touch. Delicious varied menu.

Planned meal to celebrate a special birthday, very disappointing from the start , waitress had no customer service skills or training, she had not enough menus to give to everyone but just left and walked away without explaining leaving 2 of us without menus ,.The...drinks order arrived and the bottle of wine was left on table not opened or poured, . We were missing a starter had to ask for it of a member of the bar staff as no one available it eventually appeared when everyone else finished eating, one of the main courses was sent back twice , third time lucky, no staff training very poor service will not be returning or recommending all in all we tried not let it put a damper on a special birthday celebrationMore
