Had a really good evening with some friends in Hamlets bar. The service was brilliant considering the current climate and the food was delicious. We only wished we could stay longer!

I was a little disappointed in The Fish Market -- the menu did not live up to the description given on the website : "Mouth-watering seafood dishes include Calamari Tempura, Kinsale Lobster (subject to seasonal availability), Fish Pie, Seafood Platters, Kinsale Crab & Shrimp Bruschetta, Pan Seared Atlantic Scallops and lots more" Instead, we were offered dishes like Fish Taco, Seafood Korma,and Fish & Chips.

Was very satisfied with the reservations service. On entry we were met by a member of staff who asked us to sanitize our hands & checked our temperatures. I felt confident dining there, food was great & I will return.

Booked a table in the bar area five days in advance only to be told on arrival that there was no table available there and had to sit elsewhere. Apart from that everything else was great
