Myself and my girlfriend decided to go for a mid week meal and having heard such great things we decided to try the anglers rest. It was busy enough however we were able to get a table no problem. Our waitress alison looked after us from start to finish and really added to our night out. The sole is a must have and the fish and chips couldnt be faulted. We are already planning our next trip so see you soon

Dear Colm, Thank you for your fantastic review. I'm delighted you & your girlfriend decided to give us a go, the Anglers Rest is a real hidden gem but hope that your will become a regular visitor. The team really do everything they can to ensure an enjoyable time is had by all our customers, from the food, customer service & ambience. Tables can get booked up even midweek so Id recommend booking the next time as Id hate you to be disappointed. Look forward to seeing you both again soon & if there is ever anything I can do for you please just drop me an email. Kind Regards, Jennie Grogan, Sales jenny@wbg.ie

Had a fabulous time in the Angler's Rest this afternoon for Sunday lunch with my family!!! A busy spot for sure but can't fault the food or the service. Our waitress Alison couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great time and that we did!!! Nothing was too much trouble and she is a credit to the restaurant. Will definitely be back again.

Dear Aileen, Thank you for your amazing review. I'm delighted y to hear you enjoyed the Anglers Rest so much. Its a beautiful spot to enjoy Sunday lunch with family, cosy in the winter with the open fires & equally as good on a summers day when you can enjoy a bite to eat outside. The team work really hard to ensure everyone has a great experience from the food to the ambience. Alison is a fantastic waitress, nothing is ever too much trouble & I will be sure to pass on your lovely comments to her. Tables can get booked up in advance so Id recommend booking the next time as Id hate you to be disappointed. Look forward to seeing you again soon & if there is ever anything I can do for you please just drop me an email. Kind Regards, Jennie Grogan, Sales jenny@wbg.ie

We visited yesterday for a family dinner. Beautiful restaurant, we all really enjoyed our food. I had goats cheese to start wud have been nice with some green salad. Followed by the fish pie, beautiful flavours, excellent. Everyone else enjoyed soup and steaks looked and tasted amazing. Other starters were generous sizes.
The young male waiter was a bit rude, appeared to have minimal interest.
Unfortunately a massive let down was the wood and turf burning fire was not sufficient to heat a large room. We sat in to the left as we entered. Minimal atmosphere. We were freezing in the restaurant which was a massive let down considering the food was delicious. Sitting in a cold restaurant is a big disappointment for me

Dear Endorite, Thank you for taking the time to share a review. I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed the food so much in the Anglers Rest , it is something we pride ourselves in and appreciate your feedback on the goats cheese dish, I will pass your comments on to our head chef, we are always keen to make improvements where we can. I'm sorry to hear on of our team was a bit rude, this is not the norm & there is no excuse for this, I can assure you it will be looked into, apologies. Regarding the heating in the Salmon Room. I will look into this as this room is always very cosy, there must have been some issue. I hope that we will welcome you back again & next time you will have a 5 star experience.

I was with a group of five in the Anglers rest Sunday last.
The log fire out front is a great idea and makes the place very homely looking. On entering the restaurant we were promptly shown to our table. It was very busy with a continuous flow of customers a lot of which were regulars. The manager is a really nice guy and very very helpful.
The building is very spacious with a beautiful log fire at the far wall.
We ordered Chowder, spicy wings, Calamari, and smoked salmon for starters all were excellent. The Calamari was the king of starters and highly recommended.
We then ordered Fish Pie, Fish Platter, for mains both are highly recommended.
All in all a super evening.
Constructive advice. A sign before the entrance of the car park when coming from Lucan would be great.
Thank you guys for the super food.

Thank you for your fantastic review & I love the title :) I'm delighted to see you & your group enjoyed the Anglers Rest is a real hidden gem but hope that your will become a regular visitor now you found us. Its a fantastic spot on a cold winter day with open log fires but equally as good on a summers day when you can enjoy a drink outside. We also have traditional Irish music every evening so a great atmosphere. Hope you'll be back again soon to sample some of the other amazing dishes on the menu & if there is ever anything I can do for you please just drop me an email.
