Had lunch here today went in for carvery lunch st 3.10pm there were 4 people at the carvery to be told carvery was finished, thought fair enough it seemed busy enough, when we were seated I asked for pint of guinness and ordered lunch at...same time, with that waitress that took order disappeared I assumed she finished shift no sign of pint so 10 minutes elapsed I went to bar pint still sitting there and the only barman behind the counter was swamped,I spoke with Megan lovely waitress, very professional she poured me a fresh pint happy days, eventually at 3.40pm two dinners turned up, potatoes cold, no veg, so we waited for our third meal it turned up 5 minutes later with veg for 3, third meal was cold apart from veg. Once meals were on the table three diferent members of waiting staff asked us were we ok,It was a shame as we had been told by a friend from Newbridge to come here on our trip home down south. Lots of staff very eager to please, a bit of direction from a manager with restaurant experience would go a long way.More

Hi, we stayed for one night as we were going to Kildare village and wanted to stay over close by. I’m really glad we chose here, covid procedures where better than we have seen anywhere else. Hotel is a traditional hotel and though furniture is...old fashioned it’s in keeping with the style of the hotel, rooms very clean and bed very comfortable. All staff we came across were very friendly and helpful, food quality in hotel was excellent. Rooms were quiet, also free secure parking in hotel car park, would without doubt stay here again as it would be great to see if the hotel was really packed. Hotel has a few bars, restaurant and it’s own coffee shop bakery.More

Visited today and the organization was excellent. Temperature check and details collected without fuss. Tables nicely spaced and staff extremely pleasant. Felt comfortable and relaxing despite the new normal.

Decided to go for the €50 meal for two: 2 starters, mains and desserts plus a bottle of wine. The food was delicious and well-presented and it's good to see a local business trying to keep going during these difficult times. We booked a timeslot...on the website, drove up to the front door, and the food was ready to go. Great vegetarian options too!More

The restaurant inside the Lawlors was my go to as I was staying in the hotel and the weather didnt help as well. So I had multiple experience at the Bistro and it was a great dining experience. Morning Breakfast was top notch. the omelette...is highly recommended, so is the full irish breakfast.. please google what a black pudding is before you try it :) For dinner, I opted for the breaded fish n chips, it was excellent. Also tried the apple pie with vanilla ice cream, highly recommendedMore

We went here before wonderlights. The restaurant is huge but there was no way enough staff on. The staff were rude and unhelpful unfortunately. The food was also pretty bad. The soup and duck rolls were nice as was the chicken and steak mains but...the rest of the food was awful. The burger was full of salt and the curry was completely tasteless. I could forgive the bad food but we waited over an hour for the mains after our starters, not good enough with 2 kids getting bored. When we asked where the food was we were told the kitchen did not have enough staff. I am hopeful this was just a bad experience due to the time of year.More

Good food, great service despite being very busy. We are an elderly couple and we enjoyed our lunch which was a very generous offering in contrast with the 'decorated plates' which pretend to be meals at many of today's restaurants.

Went for dinner with friends in the restaurant , did the “steak on the stone” thing, as it looked a popular dish coming out of the kitchen....great fun & really enjoyed it. Called back in for lunch a couple of weeks later.....quick Carvery service, from...an engaging & friendly chef....chatting & helping all the customers, well done that man....good deserts & help yourself to complimentary water & cordials.. Two nice rooms, the bar area and the adjoining restaurant It’s now our go to place in Naas. I’ll try the hotel next!More
