We have really enjoyed the great meals from this restaurant since the lockdown began in March. We have had regular wonderful date-night meals from the restaurant at home and have shared the pickup with another couple, they ate in their own home! Delicious steaks, seafood...pastas and roasts, wonderful vegetables. I like to think I am being very sustainable when it is all prepared and cooked centrally; we are used to catering for bigger numbers for weekend meals and it is very hard to avoid food waste with smaller numbers of people even with great planning. So no waste here, every morsel is delicious. Well done Kingfisher Team. Even the pickup is enjoyable with the wonderful decor and hand-decorated #tree with its wooden decorations! The restaurant was a joy to visit even when it was only to collect with its lovely fairy-lit indoor tree decor. Keep up the good work and we really look forward to getting back to visit in person!More

Decided to dine here based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren’t disappointed. I had booked online and received an email a couple of days before our visit confirming the booking. Upon arrival we were promptly taken to our table and sorted with...menus, wine list and water. The restaurant was quite busy for a Monday evening which is a good indication of it’s reputation. For starters we had the goats cheese tartlet and the pate, and mains the steak and herb crusted chicken. Both meals were excellent and a decent portion - we really wanted to try the desserts but there was no room left! All the staff were very friendly but professional and we look forward to visiting again.More

Nice place to have dinner, we went there last weekend and the staff were friendly and pleasant. Carlingford is lovely village with lovely views. The restaurant is casual and very reasonably priced,

Arrived here a short notice during the August Bank holiday. They happily fitted us in and we enjoyed a delicious lunch. On top of that I managed to lose my glasses. I enquired a day later and they told me they had found them and...returned them in the post.More

We visited The Kingfisher in August 2020 as we saw they did takeaway pizzas and during the Covid-19 pandemic we wanted to eat outdoors where possible. It turns out you can order pizza (or anything else on the menu) and eat outside in their outdoor...eating area. We enjoyed delicious pizzas with excellent service at great value. Also the staff were wearing face coverings for protection against the virus and toilelts were spotless with plenty of hand sanitiser avaiable. Will definitely return next time we're in Carlingford.More

Really enjoyed our experience here. We sat outside in the sun in the evening, was so warm. The wings are very tasty, main course serving is huge. Lovely place for dinner.

Great service and great food!! They were accommodating to my family and they were so friendly. I highly recommend this place. If I lived in Carlingford, I would become a "regular."
