We had a great experience at the River Club, it was incredibly relaxing. Our designated server looked after us and the rest of the team were always close by if we needed anything. I will be returning with work colleagues for our future meetings

There was some confusion over our table I believe as the first two guests were shown to different tables. Otherwise it was a lovely afternoon lunch, with good food and first class service. Thank you.

Staff super friendly Beautiful setting Limited vegetarian options The pasta dish was enormous and could definitely be smaller (allowing room for desert!)

Dear Kevin, Thank you for the time taken to offer feedback, we very much appreciate the points highlighted & your compliments of the space and team. We are sorry we didn't leave you with enough space to try our popular dessert selection. As a past vegetarian, i can empathize with your point, next time you visit we will hopefully have more choice, our vegan salad is definitely worth the try also, its simply bursting full of flavor. We will take on board your feedback & use it constructively. We hope to see you here again in the future. Warm Regards, Aisling, Restaurant Manager.

Very overpriced for chicken and potato dinner €22 and no veg on plate 9.50 for glass of wine. Chips with the burger were like McDonald's fries

Dear Helen, Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback on your recent visit to the Grill Room, I’m sorry to hear you and the family didn’t fully enjoy the dining experience, I was here when you folks visited and I’m sorry I didn’t perceive any dissatisfaction, usually I notice and offer time to the guest to offer their thoughts in person. To further address some of the points you have mentioned, we appreciate that our fries aren’t to everybody’s taste, we have trailed hand cut fries previously and the French fries were brought back due to popular demand. We also offer sweet potato fries and creamed potatoes as alternative options. Our French house wine is also competitively priced at 7€, we are sorry if we didn’t communicate this more clearly as we are aware that the Ribbonwood is a more expensive offering at 9.50€ a glass. We do hope you appreciate these explanations and that you might consider dining with in the future again despite not being fully satisfied this visit. Kind Regards, Aisling Kelly
