About Lady Helen at Mount Juliet Estate

Lady Helen McCalmont, the previous owner of Mount Juliet, was a superb hostess, who oversaw the gardens and kitchens with a kindly but firm hand. We believe she would have been delighted to know we have maintained her standards, and that the restaurant bearing her name also bears a Michelin Star, along with three AA Rosettes.

Our internationally-themed menu consists of dishes made using local ingredients, including many from our own kitchen garden, herb garden and farm. The atmosphere of opulence within the Lady Helen Restaurant complements the pastoral views out over the pastures to the River Nore, racing its way south to Inistioge.

The meal was fantastic. We did however have some difficulty actually finding the restaurant. Our taxi driver had no idea where it was and there didn’t seem to be any signposting.

My wife and I have been to the Lady Helen a number of times and we always enjoy the experience. We had the 9 course tasting menu this time, and although we both enjoyed the menu, we did find the food quite rich. As always the staff were excellent and attentive.

Only recommendation would be to ban mobile phones from the restaurant, it’s such a great experience people shouldn’t need phones

Oplevelsen efterlader et meget forvirret indtryk. Høflige tjenere men ingen passion eller tilstedeværelse. Mange modsatrettede smage på samme tid der ikke harmonerede eller overskyggede hinanden.

Superb. The food was exceptional. The menu by the chef , John Kelly , was a real experience. The 1 thing I would say was tha on booking , by open table, I never received a confirmation email. That is a truly minor issue in what was a fabulous experience. I have recommended to many friends

To book Afternoon Tea I was asked numerous times to send my card details through email which I thought was very strange as it would not be secure. I had to drive up to secure the booking. The staff agreed that sending my debit card details via email would be dangerous.

It was one of the best meals we've had, the chefs deserve great praise, all 7 of them for presentation, innovation and quality of food served. The sommelier was extremely helpful with our wine choices. Already looking forward to going back.

Really fantastic food - went for the 9 course tasting menu and every single course was as good as the next. Fantastic service as well and great wine list. Couldn't fault anything.

Exceptional Stay! Everything about it was so fabulous. The food and wine evening was just amazing and so fun and different. We were so wonderfully treated by all of the staff and were upgraded to a stunning bedroom on arrival. We both can't wait to return. Thanks again. Julie
