I've had scones and coffee a few times in Shoda Cafe @ The Glenroyal and its worth a visit if your a scone person like me. They are somewhat pricey coming in at €2.75 each but I'd rather pay that for a quality baked scones than less for an only ok one. There is a variety of scones to choose from. In fairness the scones are big and they are served with good quality help yourself raspberry or strawberry jam rather than cheap over set stuff you get in little prepared portions. There is butter of low low spread to choose from too. I had a nice large americano and my bill came to €5.90. The cafe is rustic and trendy in its decor and the staff are friendly, very well groomed and I love their uniforms. Will definitely go back X

Having eaten here regularly over the past few months its such a shame after the quality of the food i wont be eating here again. Arrived with mother in tow for a quick bite instead of cooking on a friday night. I ordered steak sambo (medium) and she ordered chicken in mushroom sauce. Both were slow to arrive. The sole of my shoe would have been easier to eat than the steak, it was undercooked (still cold in the middle) and the chips were re-heats. Mother's chicken had been cooked earlier that day as it was (fridge) cold in the middle! Potatoes and veg were microwaved to within an inch of their lives! This is the first time ever i refused to pay for food. The glenroyal had 4 coach loads of students that night but should remember its the regular customers that keep them in business!! I wont be back

Very poor value for money. Provided us with very little vegetables and had to ask for more. Was not made to feel very welcome for doing that! Would not recommend this place to anyone and will not be back. Prices are too high.

food is good but the service is lacking. The poor waitresses are running about trying to help everyone and are lovely and friendly but the bistro is clearly understaffed. Its very overpriced. The ravioli is great and so is the brie and chowder. Decor is boring and old. If it wasn't so expensive, Id probably consider eating there more often!

VERY overpriced for pub grub. I think they're very poorly staffed as the waiter/esses are FLYING around the place! Limited choice for vegetarians. Really comfortable place, feels classy!

Nice relaxed atmosphere. The caesar salad is to die for.
