We got a fabulous takeaway, it was top quality abnd presented so beautifully. The food was full of flavour and was delicious. The service was so good too, even though it was takeaway, the use of their plates and platters, they talked us through all...the sauces for each dish. Ten out of ten from us, thanks so much. 💛More

Had our usual Valentines meal from the Stonehouse, this time it was takeaway! What an exceptional service, so easy to order. Hassle free, collection was so easy, brought out to the car. The food was amazing just as good as being there. It was still...hit by the time we got home and dessert was still frozen by the time we got around to it! A real 5 star experience in the middle of Ballinlough. Can't wait to be able to go back and enjoy a meal in the beautiful restaurant ❤️More

The venue really is a gem for any occasion big or small..the venue itself has so many beautiful features about it!! Thank you again to all at The Old Stone House, you made our day very special..

A massive thank you to Ray, Mags and all the wonderful staff for the wonderful reception for our son and nephews christening last weekend. The staff are exceptional, food was outstanding and the venue itself is beautiful. Our families thoroughly enjoyed the day and we...felt so well looked after throughout the day and evening. The venue is covid friendly with all safety measures in place throughout the venue. The venue needs little in the way of decoration for any event as it is so beautifully fitted out and the decor is amazing. We very much look forward to dining with you again soon.More

We were a party of 13 celebrating a birthday celebration and we couldn’t recommend the old stone house enough. The food and service was brilliant and all staff appeared to be following all covid 19 guidelines through our visit. The restaurant was fully booked out...with a big crowd however at all times we felt safe and social distance was been maintained and there was also hand sanitizer on each table and widely available throughout the restaurant. Overall lovely restaurant and we would recommend it for any type of celebration.More

Yes I'm sure they would be able to cater for a group, I just think Father's Day they were probably under pressure with the groups that were booked and people just calling in without pre booking.
