It was my first time dining out with my friends and my new baby and the food was amazing. We couldn’t fault it, taste and presentation were faultless and portions very generous. The Pigsback voucher was incredibly good value and if it weren’t for that I would never have even thought to come here for a meal. However, our experience was tainted by an experience with management. I had bought a pigsback voucher which I had on my phone to be presented as stated on the voucher. The restaurant wanted the voucher to be printed out which wasn’t stated anywhere and we were reprimanded and subjected to a rant about their grievances with pigsback. There were very obviously issues and frustrations that the reservations team were having with pigsback vouchers due to lack of technological training or clearly specified requirements which I feel was projected onto us. I also explained to the manager at the time that it had taken a week in order to book my table in the first place. I would suggest for future, to allow pigsback to do their job and handle the bookings themselves, rather than state in the fine print that you want bookings to go through resdiary as this can only be a recipe for disaster. Despite the sour taste that was left in our mouths as we left the restaurant, I’d like to emphasize how good the food was and I would definitely come back again.

Hi As you can see from my ratings I was happy with food etc But was annoyed at how the following was dealt with we had a pigsbsck voucher but wasn’t aware it had to be printed had the reservation number etc on my phone but that wasn’t enough We were in a hurry to catch a train as our friends had gone Ahead as we were trying to find it on my phone In the end we had to pay for it It was a disappointing end to a nice evening

On our arrival we where greeted with a warm smile from Caoimhe & shown to our table on a busy friday evening service in the Black Bull.Our waitress paula promptly arrived with our menus & wine list which we both had a very difficult choice of what to chose between the starters & main courses on a fantastic menu.A good atmosphere is very important and the staff where buzzing around looking after their tables constantly with the food & Bar service always asking if the customers required any additionally requests while enjoying the catch up with their friends or family.The Food was top Quality served prompt in between starters / main courses & Dessert and again with a warm friendly smile from Caoimhe,s team. Definitively a return visit to a professionally run family established Hip Dining experience.
