At a wedding locally and popped into this restaurant for a quick bite. Staff were very nice and menu was a little more a la carte than we wanted, we had two starters. Would come back for an evening meal for sure. Worth a visit!!

Gorgeous restaurant with fantastic food! Great knowledge of gluten free for coeliacs. They kindly offer shuttle service from local B&B's which helped us enjoy our dinner that much more! Kind people, super fantastic service - cannot fault it.

Lovely place in the Wicklow hills, nkt ideal for groups but ideal for small parties. Menu is nice if a little pricey but the quality of the food is high. Staff are very attentive and professional. Worth a visit if in the area.

I was there for a lovely Sunday lunch. I don't know if it was "traditional" but it was delicious. I would recommend making a reservation. I recall there were some great drink specials on the Sunday menu also
