Service was great. Service staff were all friendly and brilliant at their jobs. The food was the let down. Very average breakfast and lunch. Not worth €10.50 for a mini breakfast nor €15 for a burger and chips.

Spent a fabulous night in Mount Juliet, great place with amazing surroundings and atmosphere. Food in Hound restaurant only average and service not five star but still very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend Mount Juliet Estate to anyone for a very relaxing break away.

The food was well presented and the portion sizes were adequate. After having our starters the main course arrived soon after, but there was no cutlery on the table. And we had to ask for it. Thought the wine was a little overpriced.

Jimmy made the night very memorable. Really enjoyed our visit. Next time he's "fixing to" come to the US again, hope we can return the favor PS - He'll know what "fixing to" means ;-)

We had eaten in the Lady Helen dining room at the Manor house the previous evening and unfortunately it was far superior to the Hound restaurant. I cannot fault the staff, as they were clearly working very hard to get the job done but this rushing around of staff somewhat detracted from the atmosphere The food was lovely, but funnily enough I would say the main course came out too quickly after the starters, not something I would often complain about!! Our initial drinks orders did not arrive until after our starters which was a bit disappointing, but was a symptom of the fact the serving staff were over stretched. I suspect on a quieter evening for the restaurant it could have been a much more pleasant evening, but unfortunately though the food was good, the atmosphere and experience in the restaurant was not what we would have hoped for

I would like to see a little more choice on the menu, (maybe some chicken or lamb dishes?). We ate here for 2 nights and found the menu a bit limited. I certainly can't fault the quality of the food or the wonderful service.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Hunters Lodge and a fabulous evening dinner in The Hound. I would highly recommend both and will definitely revisit in the near future.

Was really pleased with our evening in the Hound restaurant. We were promptly greeted seated and our drinks arrived very quickly too. Our meal was made up of plates of seasonal, contemporary high quality produce. It was pure pleasure to enjoy a relaxed meal looking out at the stunning views of the golf course. We will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our 3 evenings in the Hound immensely for atmosphere, quality cuisine and service. The trout dish was particularly memorable.

I stayed at Hunters Yard for one night with my husband and two children. We had dinner booked for 6.30pm , but just as we sat down to order my daughter became very upset as she had an earache , which resulted in us having to return to our room . The waiting staff were so accommodating that they delivered our entire meal ( drinks included) to our room . Myself and my husband were delighted with the service and warmth we received from the entire team of staff .. I’d would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning soon . Thanks again to all at Hunters Yard , Mount Juliet. Kindest regards,Michele Fallon
