Their menu offers fantastic choice and is the perfect location for a Sunday lunch with friends or a romantic dinner for two. I really like how they strive to use all local produce and in doing so support local businesses”.
The menu tells that the name Eala Bhan is Irish for White Swan as it is not uncommon to see swans making their way along the river in front of the restaurant.
