Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff.

My sister and I recently had a very tasty two course lunch. My starter was perfect for such a wet and windy day, a sort of mini chicken stew. We both had the King Prawn tagliatelli - delicious. We also indulged in a perfcetly acceptable glass of house white wine. My sister then had the raspberry cheesecake which she declared to be absolutely yummy. A good cup of coffee brought a very satisfactory lunch to an end.

My girlfriend and I visited "The Larder" last weekend for my birthday. I made the booking through menupages and used a deal voucher which was fantastic value. We arrived at 9pm per the reservation and were warmly welcomed by one of two waiters. We were the only people eating in the restaurant (9pm on the first Sunday of the year so not overly surprising) and were given a nice seat by the window. I think the waiters felt a little awkward/uncomfortable as we remained the only two in the restaurant but were very pleasant and professional and we enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and I joked that I had booked out the whole restaurant. On to the important part, the food. We shared a portion of the "The Larder’s Crispy Chicken Wings" to start which were delicious; full of flavour without an overpowering amount of spice. I went with the "Braised Lamb Shank" and my girlfriend had the steak for mains. The lamb was superb. It was sticky and just fell off the bone. The combination of flavours with the red cabbage and quinoa was really tasty. For dessert I had the "Bread and Butter Pudding" which again gets top marks. It was cooked perfectly served with creme anglaise it was delicious. The waiters even put a candle in it and sang happy birthday to me. It was a wonderful night and I couldn't fault anything on the night. In a nutshell: great food, friendly and hospitable staff and overall a great restaurant. We will be back.

I had my work Christmas lunch here and I was really happy with the food and the service that we received. The Indian Potato soup is the nicest soup I have ever had! The steak had a lovely charcoal flavour to it and the plum tart with cream were lovely too. Usually Christmas lunch set menus are a bit thrown at you and samey but I didn't find that at The Larder. We also were allowed to take our time over lunch and weren't given an certain amount of time to give back the table which everywhere else as giving (this could have been to do with the time I booked for as well, they might have to do it normally). I will come back another time definitely.

11 of us visited The Larder last week and had a lovely meal. There was quite a mix of dishes ordered and we were all happy. I had the olives and dips that came with crusty bread and I had cod to follow with puy lentils and a mushroom veloute. Service was very attentive and it was no trouble to change an ingredient when requested. This was my second visit to the Larder and I will be returning.

My sister and I ended up in The Larder without a reservation on a Friday evening at almost 7pm. We had a great table up on high stools and were glad of this as some of the other, lower tables seemed very close together. We had never been to the Larder before and were very impressed with the menu - especially the Early Bird deal which was absolutely fantastic value. My sister had the chicken wings which were a little greasy but delicious and the rib eye steak which was perfectly cooked - her only disappointment was that the chips were so chunky, they were almost like roast potatoes. I had the crab and crayfish starter and that came with a lovely crisp apple-based salad - it was gorgeous. My main course was the slow cooked beef which just melted at the touch of a fork - it was fabulous and so moreish. The bottle of prosecco we enjoyed was reasonably priced and the service was fantastic and faultless although the restaurant was very busy. Will definitely be going back soon!! :D

I could not stay away! Had a bit of an embarrassing and bad experience end of August with shoddy service at The Larder. But I always loved the food there, so was determined to go back. I booked a table for six of us on Wed Sept 17th for 7.30pm. Boy was I glad I did so! It was the best yet. As it was a great friend's birthday meal, and her maiden voyage into the restaurant, I was hoping it would be memorable, and it surpassed my wildest expectations. From the moment we set foot inside, Peter and staff could not have done any more for us to make us all feel soo very welcome and happy. From the complimentary Prosecco, to the wonderful array of starters, that included as always their signature and mouthwatering spicy chicken wings, to our delicious mains of duck, fish of the day and chicken it was absolutely scrumptious. My chicken breast dish served on a beautiful moist risotto of varied mushrooms and and bacon pieces, was too delicious for words. All were complimented by a 'few' bottles of their magnificent Chilean house Sauvignon Blanc, and a most welcome birthday desert for my friend with candle and rousing chorus of 'Happy Birthday'! What a finish, to a wonderful night, most delicious cuisine, impeccable service, and the amazing atmosphere, that only Larder staff can create! Cant wait to return!

I love The Larder, on any occasion, and normally the food quality and service is impeccable! However not on the Friday evening I last visited 29/08/14. Accompanied by two visiting Australian friends, who had also eaten there a few times on previous and this visit, I was grateful to get a last minute booking for the three of us for 8pm on a busy Friday evening!. We arrived on time, and shown to our favouite spacious table at the rear, table 6 ! Staff as always were friendly and attentive, and duly brought our water and first of two bottles of wine we ordered. Though it was busy, it didnt seem exceptionally so, our starters were brought to table some 30 mins later, all of us choosing the signature Larder ultra tasy chicken wings. As we had finished one bottle of wine another was ordered stat. However by 9.45 our mains still had not arrived, and as we were overdue a meet with friends elsewhere, I approached staff to ask when same would be due, as by this time we had drank both bottles of wine and did not want to order another. He assured same was being plated and duly arrived shortly thereafter. All mains were as tasty as ever, though my chicken and another duck dish, were a bit dried from probably being under hotplate and lamp. We ate quickly and asked for bill. On attempting to pay via Credit Card, the server informed us that their visa terminal was out of action, but that we could go 'to a nearby Spar shop to withdraw cash from an instore atm'! I was a bit startled and embarrassed by this and said that same should have been told to us on entering the restaurant, not when meal was over. We had to collect cash between us, to pay the bill. I was greatly disappointed, my first ever, with this shoddy level of service from Larder staff, and embarrassed in the company of my two Sydney visitors. Food quality and value was as good as ever, but I thought the inordinate delay with mains and subsequent non availability of credit card option was totally unacceptable.

My partner brought me here for my birthday last year, the food was great, chicken wings especially and they brought me out a birthday desert with candles after the meal. All in all the larder is a hidden gem, and we have gone back several times since!
