Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food, service and professionalism were all second to none. The only drawback was how cold the restaurant was - we had to stay wrapped up in thick jumpers and coats - such a shame as it impacted the otherwise amazing experience.

Our first time to visit here and won't be the last. We went here for my Mum's birthday. Fantastic food, everything from start to finish was delicious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. One of our family didn't want a starter and they got him...a taster of soup. They gave my Mum a complimentary glass of prosecco for her birthday and sang happy birthday when they were serving dessert. We will definitely be visiting again. Highly recommendMore

Food is lovely, but I found the management very unprofessional and cold. I really wouldn't recommend this restaurant as they dont deserve any business. I was talking to a staff member who informed me they treat their staff horribly and I witnessed one such encounter...away from public in which the female in charge was nasty to a young member.More

A terrific restaurant. The staff are a credit. Mostly young people, one better than the next. Professional and polite. Clearly a great training programme. Really great menu, no shortage of staff. Great food, great service and a great atmosphere. Well done to all involved. Plus...a great children’s menu. More to offer than chicken nuggets & chips or sausage & chips etc. Will definitely be back.More

Well worth a trip out to the Old Stone House. Nice venue and good for either a family get together or couples. Very good knowledge of allergens. Excellent gluten free options. Staff were able to advise. Would definitely take a trip back.

A pure delight in the county of Roscommon. We had met with friends earlier who spoke highly of this restaurant. We managed to get a booking and were delighted we availed the booking. The staff are outstanding in their attention and knowledge , fully aware...of the menu and it contents. The food was superb and tasty. We tried the bbq ribs and the cajen stirfry, both were excellent. Not one usually for deserts we were tempted by the menu and delighted we did try the deserts. If in the area well worth a visit, however make sure you book in advance.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.
