AWARDS & PRIZES

Most star-rated hotels have their own restaurants and these are inspected by the AA. As with independent restaurants, rosettes from one to five are awarded annually to hotel restaurants for the quality of their food. Not all restaurants receive an AA award, but will generally serve enjoyable food. We seek out the best establishments in every part of Ireland for inclusion in our guides and, because we work independently and without charging a fee, you know that we can be trusted to lead you to the best places over a wide range of categories. In 1900, André Michelin published the first edition of a guide to France to help drivers maintain their cars, find decent lodging, and eat well while touring. In 1926, the guide introduced the star to note good cooking; two and three stars were added in the early 1930s. The guide awards one to three stars to a small number of restaurants of outstanding quality.

We were asked to wait in the bar when we arrived on time for our 7:30booking & were given menus. They left us there until 8:00 then took our orders for food. All this time we could see that the restaurant was only about one third full. There were plenty of tabels set. At eight twenty we were finaly shown to our table & the starters arrived the same time we did. They were okay but not very hot. Soup was bland. Chicken vol au vant was good. Main meals: Baked cod tasted of fish and nothing else. & chicken very fatty!! Veg were good. All in all very disappointing.

We've been here a few times and the food is wonderful and the place itself is very small, but packed with horsey charm. Afternoon tea is very good with a nice variety of sandwiches and pastries and the Sunday roast is nicer than most carverys around with crisp yorkshire pudding and a generous side of roasted winter veg. The only let down is when it comes to kids. When we arrived with our two children, we were only given the regular menus so we asked could we get a kids portion of carbonara, but were bluntly told no. So definitely go for afternoon tea but don't bring the children!

Hmm. Before I start, I should say that we were at a Murder Mystery Night so this may not be the "typical" experience you would get here. We were just jammed into our seats - absolutely packed the place. So much so that I could not get out to use the bathroom the entire time we were there because the table had to be pushed out for me and my boyfriend to get it (we're not big people either, for those thinking it!). The service was pretty awful. Just couldn't get their attention and they were rushing about the place (understandable, too). We got pumpkin soup for starter. It was lovely - but I know pumpkin soup and that wasn't it. It was vegetable soup and quite salty (probably the stock) but very nice all the same. Ordered the token vegetarian main - it was listed as "penne". Great. The waitress brought out the dish, looked at it, looked at me and said "penne"? I said "yes, please". It was ravioli. Now that was fine and tasted nice but it your staff can't tell the difference between penne and ravioli, I think there's a bigger problem afoot! The food (not being what I ordered) was very nice all the same but being squashed into a teeny, tiny space all night was not. I hope, if they are running it next year, they will be more mindful of the organisation.

I went here on Saturday for a party but I’m not sure I’d return. Its very cramped and they have too many tables in the space. The food and staff were good but the slow service was appalling! We waited an hour and a quarter to be served our starters, while I don’t like to be rushed this was a bit excessive I thought. It was busy but not that busy! I had the fillet steak, half of it was nice the other half was very chewy and tough. A few others got the fillet steak and said it was great, I think it was just a bad cut. Which is disappointing as it is fairly expensive! The garlic potato was amazing though. Everyone enjoyed the meal it's just a pity it took so long!!

Called in for lunch unexpectadly. We were greeted immediatley and shown to our seats. Bar staff were very quick with sevice, granted it wasnt busy but great service. We ate from the bar menu, food was lovely, chips were homemade! Only downfall was we asked for sides-ketchup and that and we were left waiting, the waitress we asked we saw a few mins later cleaning tables. We had to ask a second waitress who again took her time but none the less we got it! Food was delicious, staff excellent and good value, look forward to our next visit.

Had my Sunday lunch at The Station House on Sunday. It was very busy with a great atmosphere around the place. We were seated in the "Library" which is just off the bar. I don't think they usually use this room for dining but because the main dining room was full, this was where they put us. So cute....pictures of the old train station, invoices dating back to the 1800's on the wall, a fab fireplace and garden view to top it off. There were only a few tables in this room so it was almost like a private dining room. The food was delicious. I had roast beef -very tender with gravy sauce to die for. A nice touch of minted peas and fresh vegetables. The service was flawless. There were plenty of people around and seems to be doing very well, despite the recession. Highly recommend here for somewhere quirky, out of town, and great value for money. Very kid friendly too (as long as it's not raining) with lots of forest area and gardens for them to play in.

Ate in the station house hotel restaurant on the bank holiday Sunday in August. Didn't havea reservation as we had been visiting a friend near the area and decided last minute to chance our arm. Although they were very busy they were very helpful and accommodated us immediately. The food was amazing and although they were under pressure beingso busy very fast indeed. Our waitress was very attentive and constantly made sure we were happy. I would certainly reccommend this restaurant to anybody looking for something out in the countryside, away from all the hustle and bustle and the food is definitely worth travelling for. My friend got married there 3 years ago and the food and standards are as good now asthey were then. Can't wait to go back again!!!!

I absolutely love this place! We had lunch here last Monday. The lunch menu is a four course meal for 22.95 and is served until 5.00 p.m. There is a huge choice on the menu. There were six of us and we all had something different and none of us were disappointed. The ambiance is fab and the staff are very attentive. Nothing is a problem. We will definitely be back again.

I had dinner in the Signal Restaurant in the Station House with two of my family and I have to say it was amazing. The staff were friendly and nothing was a problem from the moment we walked in the door of the hotel to finishing up our delightful meal with an night cap in the relaxing bar. It is a beauitful setting, I would describe it as a Little Gem in the Country. We really enjoyed the food, the presentation was very good on the eye and the flavours were amazing and also I do like the fact that they change their menus all the time to give you a wide choice if you go regularly. We will be back and I can honestly recommend it to my friends.

Since I wrote the review below I contacted the Station House we have been offered a voucher to have a meal in the restarant at a time and date of our choosing.We were out for a drive and decided to stop for something to eat it was only 5pm so we had the bar to ourselves. We decided to eat in the bar as there was a weddind going on and we could people watch. I had the burger and chips the plate was cold the burger had been ordered rare and was over cooked the chips were cold soggy and limp the bun had been toasted so much it broke in two whateversauce was on it was disgusting. My Mother in law had the beef with brocoli and cashewnuts the beef was so tough she couldn't eat it. My husband had the thai chicken which had no taste of thai and came with a greasy popadum. We complained at the end of the meal but nothing was done about it the waiting staff were very friendly and seemed to be embarrased that the meal was so bad. In their website we are told about the award winning rastaurant I dont think so not for the last few years anyway.

Previously eaten here and was never disappointed. However last Sunday (Fathers Day) the lunch was awful - tough roast beef which came without the promised yorkshire pudding but the worst of all was the whiting. We certainly did not expect it to come battered (similar to a chip shop) and totally lacking in taste. We both took a bite out of it and could not eat anymore and were surprised when the waitress did not question the plates going back barely touched. Service was very poor and unprofessional with my husbands dinner almost getting dropped in his lap. When we complained at reception while settling our bill we were told "Sorry you didnt enjoy your meal, we were under pressure because of fathers day and we will tell the manager". I did feel that she should at least have asked for a phone number and followed this up with a call. Will probably try it one more time to see if they can redeem themselves but would not go there on occasions i.e. Mothers Day, Fathers Day etc. as they do not seem to be able to cope.

I love going to the Statin House for dinner. Very nice resturant. Lovely setting. Food is perfect. Very good value for money. I have only one issue with it, however my partner thinks the following is a lovely touch. When you go into the hotel itself, you sit in the bar/lounge and are given the menus. You order from here and not from your table. If you have ordered a drink its brought to you here but its at this point I always feel like Im being rushed. You are just starting to relax with your drink and look over the menu when staff are straight over to take your order and then you are moved straight away into the resturant. Personally I dont see the point of this. Why not just take your orde at the table!? I cannot fault the food or the waiting staff in any way. You will be very full leaving.

Very very disappointed with a recent visit to the Station house. Was always one of my fav places to go for a special event so we booked my sons christening with them. Mix up with the tables and menus and a lack of communication of what we had hoped for that day. This is NOT a family friendly location Food fab but didn;t meet my hospitality/service expectations at all. To make matters worse-sent a pleasant email outlining my disappointment, then sent it again and got NO response. Will NOT be back.

Went there for Sunday lunch yesterday and I have to admit, it did not reach my expectations.... Waited for a copy of the menu and a couple of drinks a good 15 minutes... Found the deco and atmosphere rather stuffy and aged... Sunday Lunch seems good value for money at €19.95...but did not do it for me. Crab and potato cake was ok. Lacked seasoning for my taste and did not understand the marie rose sauce...but fair enough. My companion ordered the chicken and mushroom vol au vent which came decorated with little pieces of red and green pepper...strange twist to a classic. I did not get the whole decoration of the plates with something that looked like saffron either. Mains were average. My Salmon came with brie and red pepper coulis...the brie and coulis overpowered the delicate flavour of the salmon...and I found the whole combination odd at best. The salmon was perfectly cooked itself but the flavour was lost. Companion ordered the Pork...which was quite tasteless and did not look appetizing... The Baileys cheesecake for dessert was ok and the Chocolate mousse wasn't too special. Service was inconsistent...with not a waiter assigned to our table but several of them serving us. When they collected my main course (barely touched) they did not ask if there was a problem with it. In general a disappointing experience. Won't be back.

Amazing value for money €20..... left me not expecting much....but to my surprise the food was excellent really top notch.... the staff were very accommodating also! Would recommend for any small groups looking for good food & excellent service in cosy surroundings....restaurant could do with some mood lighting though!
