“Food with thought”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

This lovely place is a delight. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. I loved the French onion soup so much I had to ask the waitress for the recipe and within 2 minutes the chef came out to greet me and advised me that the stock was White wine & herbs!! Super. My husband had the cottage pie and again the taste was fantastic, another secret ingredient was a little bit of Guinness, love killaloe, love this place.

“Murder Mystery organizer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Trials and tribulations of running a Murder Mystery night took its toll, Food was fabulous as per usual, John started the evening by describing all the food he had prepared for us and as the organizer I completely forgot to check who has special food requirements and as true to form John sorted it out without me even knowing. And then it happened, the special prepared meal landed in front of someone else. It was just one of those moments that isn't discovered until its too late. All 32 of us had fun at the Murder Mystery and I would like to thank John for taking care of everyone and so so sorry for the mishap. B.

“Disappointed with variety of food for people on gluten free diet.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I was with some firends at a private function and spoke with John Wood about gluten free food. It was a set menu for the evening but he said he would do something for me as most of the food was not gluten free. To my disappointment there was nothing prepared for me and there was no sign of John Wood at the end of the meal.
