So disappointing ..the service was appalling. Our dinner reservation was 8.30pm, we finally got our food at 10.30!!! We didn’t order a starter just mains. No bread put on the table, chased the waiter serval times for a glass of wine.... never again.

We have a wonderful time in Mount Juliet and our meal on Friday night in the Hound restaurant was excellent. The staff are so helpful and always smiling even when extremely busy. We will be back. Catherine

Will definitely be back wonderful staff, facilities and immaculately kept. Excellent breakfast but hot plates would be appreciated. Dinner seasonal and fine ingredients just the steak lacked quality on this occasion but dessert and starter made up for it. Chefs bread for the table would be a nice touch. Quality wines and great value for money through out. We will be back soon, thank you for a brilliant stay.

We were disappointed in the food. The starter of hummus and olive tapenade was paltry in two tiny ramekins and a few pieces of bread. Not inspiring and tasted like store bought. The trout on shredded veg was very bland, again so not interesting to look at or eat. And the lemon tart looked lovely but I didn't taste any lemon so between us we didn't finish one of them. We expected more and since it was our anniversary dinner it was a letdown. Luckily the rest of the resort was so lovely and Brian the bartender was great.

We arrived for a Dinner booking at 830 and it was heavily overbooked, we were not called in from the bar until after 9pm to sit down at our table. We did not receive our starter until 10pm and my wife was sick that evening after eating so late. Terrible service and staff did not seem to be able to organise for it being so busy.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Very pleasant surroundings. I always enjoy my visits to the Hound. Only issue is the “ mugs” for breakfast. Cups and saucers please 😂😂

The Lady Helen restaurant was superb. The Hunters yard food could be better. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Room and service was tip top and Des was a joy to listen on our tour/talk on the estate. Many thanks Carol

Thanks to the Hunters Yard and The Hound Restaurant for a great overnight stay and dinner. The rooms were very nice and the food was good quality. Will recommend to others. Thanks especially to Michael Sheehan for being so helpful during our booking. Although we did not get to play the golf with the rain on Sunday, we will come back again hopefully in the near future to get a round in. Many Thanks.

Excellent food ,but service was decidedly poor . Young enthusiastic staff but a little training would go a long way . Disappointed as we stayed in the manor house and the quality of service was outstanding .
