We had lunch here and the food and atmosphere was very good. However we waited an hour for our meal and the service, generally, was very slow. For that reason we won’t be going back sadly.

Staff very friendly but food was awful and overpriced. Husband had rack of lamb which was mostly fat and bone, at over €20 we expected better. Starter was too spicy to enjoy. Will not be returning anytime soon..best part was the chips..yummy!!More

Yes.. but go early on a Sunday as it gets full quite quickly, especially if the weather is nice.

I didn't have any response. Would appear the service & food is hit & miss which is a shame we have been there many times & like the ambience very much.
