Early dinner for two mid week. I had the Chilli Beef starter - really good and packs a punch, my friend had the Scallops, very tasty and nicely presented. I had the Cod and Black Rice as a main - delicious. Creme Brûlée for dessert- exactly as it should be. Nice selections of wine. Will be back

We had a very enjoyable evening with you. Food was delicious. The steak was lovely but I thought for the price there should be more on the plate such as mash and some nice roasted veg?? I ordered the donuts for dessert and didn't feel they were homemade ..?? Please dont take the negatives the wrong way but as a way to improve maybe. Wishing you all the best and hope to dine with you again soon Deirdre and Alan Gallagher.

Amazing food and service. Chateaubriand was tasty, I just adore the starter ham hock and quail egg, its a must. Atmosphere was brilliant despite less people. Social distancing measures very well laid out. Place very ventilated and you felt safe. Thanks Fiona, Fergal, its a joy to taste your excellent skills a real treat for us. Gary and team were brilliant

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner a few nights ago. All the staff were really welcoming and the food was fantastic. For a starter I got the lemon and thyme baked ricotta and he got the chilli beef- both perfect. For the mains we both got the tenderloin steak with triple cooked chips which were so crispy. I'd have loved to see a ribeye steak on the menu but this was delicious too. For the desserts we both got the chocolate orange dish with honeycomb and barley icecream. The icecream balanced out the richness of the chocolate orange. Very good guys! Overall we'd highly recommend the food, delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. Keep up the good work!
