We had the beer battered cod x 2 people. The Batter was a grey colour...soggy, completely undercooked and oily. the chips were made with frozen chips and came out presalted. i ate it because the fish inside was cooked and didnt want to wait for more to be cooked. told staff but no goodwill gesture offered. The soup and dessert were ok though. meal was not worth €68 for two

This is a very large room and was very noisy on the night we visited. There were lots of hurling supporters around. The food was fairly standard hotel fare but the Caesar salad very tasty. However, my companion was not impressed with her 'homemade' soup. We both had salmon for the main course - fine. The lemon cheese cake was good. I thought it was expensive enough for what was fairly standard fare and would not be in a rush to go back.

My first impression booking was not great and the person on the phone was very distracted. The decor was very poor it was cold and should not be called a restaurant as it is just and extention of the bar. It was very hard to hear when you were talking as the band in the bar was very loud. The service was like a stressed mother trying to get the dinners on the table and it was just handed to you. The food was good and hot but would not be my first choice again to go out for a birthday meal.

Had a family dinner her on a Wed night to mark an anniversary. The service was very very poor. They were understaffed & the quality of the food was really poor. My sisters dish had to be sent back as it was cold, then her rice was re-heated so it was hard. Another persons steak was butterflied without even asking if we wanted it like that. There was nobody to serve us drink so we had to get them from the bar ourselves. Overall not good service & very poor food. We will not be returning here in the future.

Met a business colleague here for lunch as he was travelling from Cork and thought it would be handy for parking etc. What a disaster was really embarrased. The place is dark and old fashioned, no effort has been put into any creature comforts and the staff were completley indifferent to the customers. The food was last century "pub grub" I was not enticed at all so I went for a sandwich which was worse than you would get in a bad garage stop. Tea was served out of a flask and was cold and tasted of coffee. My colleague went for one of the hot options but had to wait for a staff member to appear from the kitchen to be served. The floor staff just looked on as he stood and waited. His food tasted as it looked evidently had been lying around for a long time. Wont suggest there again I can assure you.

A group of us went here for Sunday lunch and decided on the set menu. It was a disaster from start to finish. All the soup came out cold. There was about 5 bread rolls for about 15 people. When the soup eventually came out and was eaten, we were told there was bread rolls in the oven, at this stage obviously it was too late. The children's dinners were absolutely miserable and we had to order them chips to try and fill them up . For the children's desserts it was supposed to be jelly and icecream but they had no jelly. Everyone complained about some aspect of their dinner. I have to give credit to the waitress who understood how bad things were and tried to correct everything. They did give us the children's dinner's complimentary but the day had been ruined by the awful food.

We visited the hotel for my son's 24th birthday. As usual we were seated promptly and served with our menus. Being regular visitors to the Green Isle we noticed the menu had subtle changes. We ordered our meal. We were very disappointed with the meal. The potatoes tasted of pot as in they had sat too long in it. The roast of the day was beef which was quite tough. Far too much on the plate and the veg were micro waved. Desserts were ok for the other 4 however mine was cheese cake which was very soggy. It's such a pity as this was always somewhere we went to celebrate special occasions. We won't be back .....

Very tasty food, and good value for money. The kids menu is great too, went down very well. The place was buzzy for midweek. Overall, a very nice place to drop in for dinner, and it's cheap enough that you can do it on a whim. Will be back.
