Our visit to the The Percy French was for a Sunday lunch with friends. In the party there was four adults and three children. On arrival swift direction to the table was given by the staff member for our party. The order was taken after a short delay. The order was taken. The starters arrived followed by the main course. The food was of a good standard and reasonably priced. As we had a party of three kids we would have liked the opportunity for the kids meal to arrive with the starters. The service could have been more swift. All in all I would return to the Percy French.

We had Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day. Food was ok. Turkey had Parma ham wrapped around it rather than traditional ham, too much mash and not enough veg. The atmosphere was meh. Not very festive, we felt we were sitting in a canteen. Roast beef was delicious, as were the trio of desserts. Service was very good, staff friendly and helpful. Overall, it was ok, but id rather have my dinner in the Slieve Donard Hotel next time.

Nice food and decent service. Zero atmosphere in the restaurant though which was disappointing.

Whilst the service and atmosphere were fine at Percy French the food was very disappointing. My little girls pasta meal was horrible and basics like chips just were not good. Definitely would not rush back.

The hotel is excellent and the staff are very good as well. It I don't a bit on the expensive side but you get what you pay for . Hotel needs to make its check in process a bit smoother than experienced .

Only complaint is that the chunky chips with the main courses were so chunky that they were hard in the middle.

Great experience on Christmas Eve. Everything was spot on even though the restaurant was very busy. Looking forward to going again next time we are in the area.

Food was ok, The main was a big let down, defeat not enough in terms of quantity and taste for the price, it was basically just Beef, mash and carrots which ive made better in my own house, service was very good though.

Service wasn’t great, ordered a Sunday roast and the roasties where barely cooked. Couldn’t get a waiter’s attention and by the time we were asked if our meal was ok we had nearly finished and upon showing the roasties I was offered cooked ones the meal was over. We also had to wait 15-20 mins to place our dessert order after being given a menu, no waiters were about.

Great food choices especially for those who are gluten free. Only issue was when at booking we requested the table by the window, booking was made a couple of months ago, this could not be accommodated which slightly spoiled our evening.
