Found this 'wee' gem on the way back from the Cash Machine. Service brilliant food amazing had my Cajun Chicken salad altered for my peanut allergy without any fuss, all suggested by our waitress, wine list was great and the lager list made us wish we drank the stuff! Well done guys!

Deceptively large place - stretches back from main street - dark decor; popular and busy (Friday night); service fine; food so-so - not cheap and, in our case, not that great (indifferent pasta sauce). There are better places to eat in adn around Navan (have reviewed two better).
