The food in this hotel is excellent and the service is excellent. The staff are ready with water to top whenever youneed it. Especially impressed with the mint and cucumber water. The menu is varied and I can recommend the fish pie.

The Walter Restaurant & Bar is a period style pub with amazing sea views. Relax in front of the open turf fire and enjoy a beautifully prepared lunch or dinner. Our menu is available from 12 noon till 9pm each day. It is full of classic local dishes like our Atlantic seafood pie, locally landed fish from Ballycotton and Irish Hereford steaks. Treat yourself to afternoon tea in the Tea Room and enjoy a range of exquisite finger sandwiches, cakes and savoury treats accompanied by a tea of your choice from our range of loose teas or freshly ground coffee. The River Restaurant is a brasserie-style restaurant. We serve a similar menu as the Walter but in a period restaurant setting open Friday and Saturday evenings from 6pm and for Sunday lunch from 12 noon.
