The only proper restaurant in Ashbourne. Food was excellent along with the service. So good I went back for the second night of my stay. It didn't let me down, again had an excellent meal with fantastic service. Highly recommended.

We visited this venue last Summer, having previously visited a couple of months earlier. We called in for lunch and the food was absolutely first rate on both occasions. The lady that attended us was most professional friendly and helpful. We truly felt that we were dining in "somewhere very special". The reason for this belated review is that we... More

Went here Thursday night for a meal with my wife whilst enjoying a few days away, we were not disappointed. We have been a couple of times before when in the area and have always been impressed with the service and food.

My first visit to Ashbourne, and I went to Lamplight with a group of eleven friends. As soon as you enter the door you get the impression of customers enjoying themselves in a restaurant that knows what it is doing. Between us we must have tried most of the dishes on the menu, and I heard only praise for the... More

A totally fabulous lunch in the most beautiful old building that has been converted into a high quality restaurant. Amazing homemade Mushroom soup, the sea Bass and pork loin were exceptionally well cooked and very well presented. The deserts were gorgeous white chocolate and raspberry bread and butter pudding, chocolate and Ginger cheese cake. Lynda was so welcoming and helpful.... More

Booking for a Valentines treat with my wife has proven to be very disappointing in the past. But not this year! This cosy little restaurant put on a five course menu with perfect choices and delivered throughout the evening with delicate and delicious tastes served up by the friendliest waiting staff I have experienced in this country in recent years....
