Lovely atmosphere again even with all the Covid precautions in place. The food was fantastic as usual. Staff friendly and polite. Easily the best Restaurant in Longford.
Fabulous food in beautiful boutique hotel. Not for nothing this restaurant is consistently voted one of the top restaurants in Leinster. The menu is extensive, the food to die for and perfectly presented. Staff and management are attentive and helpful. This is a wonderful dining experience to make any occasion really special. I had the added pleasure of staying overnight recently to mark our anniversary and experiencing the joys of the hotel and the fabulous breakfast the morning after. Not to be missed.
