An amazing vegan menu with lots to choose from. Food is delicious. Some of the best vegan dishes I’ve had. Really impressed. Meat eating partner was also very impressed with his dishes. Service was great, really friendly and speedy. Beautiful place too, real cosy atmosphere....Absolute gem on our doorstep. We will definitely be back. If you are a vegan you have to check it out!More

11/10 - We came here at the weekend for my mothers 70th Birthday. A week prior I popped in during the day and the owner Mags was there. She sat me down gave me coffee and listened to my requests, very nice lady and runs...a great place along with her husband. The food was beautiful, the staff were very attentive always, ensuring everyone was looked after. It has a very nice atmosphere and for the high quality of food they provide, the prices are more than reasonably. I would like to thanks everyone in there, everyone left complimenting the fine evening we had. i can tell you if this restaurant was in Dublin city, it would be one of the top ones recommended to dine at. Added bonus when your owners are also your chefs you are guaranteed the love goes into the food and that what we felt. thanks everyone at the stonehouse, we will be back again :)More

Even though I have driven past this place so many times I have missed this gem. From the moment I booked the table nothing was a problem. The food is amazing as you will see from the photos. Even though the restaurant was very very...busy food arrived very quickly was hot and had a taste to die for. It’s the first place I have managed to get baked Alaska like my mother makes. I can’t wait to get back again.More

Had a recent family meal here and everything from start to finish was outstanding. The waitresses were helpful and friendly. The place has a wonderful ambiance and is decorated beautifully. Felt very safe in our time spent dining here. The food was tasty and so...fresh. The stir fry and steaks went down very well at our table. For those at the table dairy free it was excellent to see a full vegan menu, something which other places should follow suit on! An amazing place to have and an excellent addition to the area. Comes highly recommended.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.
