Ate here last Friday & Saturday night as staying in the hotel (Rackett Hall) which is fab but unfortunately is let down big time by the food on offer - intended eating in the bar on Friday night & having a nice meal in the restaurant on Sat.as it was included in our package - but it seems the bar & restaurant menu are one & the same & a bit confused, not typical bar food & definitely not what you would expect on a menu in a country house hotel. Had burger & chips on Friday - the burger was lovely & tasty but the chips were anaemic - why can't theu leave them for another few minutes? husband had mini mixed grill which he enjoyed. The menu for our package on Saturday night was very boring so I asked if we could order from another menu and pay a supplement which the manager agreed to - I had deep fried brie which was reasonable enough but not very pleasing to the eye, a little more colour in the salad garnish would have made a huge difference, my husband had leek & potato soup which was fine - we both had steaks for mains but again the attention to detail was rather lacking - the steak was ok but it was served with more anaemic chips & onion rings that were very well cooked - the accompanying pepper sauce was a disaster more like bisto with a couple of peppercorns in it. Overall the hotel was fab but really think they need to vastly improve on the catering side of the business, we were given a voucher when checking out for a special offer within the next 6 months but I really don't think I would return because of the poor food quality & what seems to be a lack of interest in producing a decent menu

In my opinion I had the most disgusting meal here last Friday. The service was bad, the toilets dirty, the food was awful - truly inedible. We complained to the poor waiter who had the air of someone tired of complaints. I hope unsuspecting tourists don't stop for a meal here - in this day and age there is no excuse for such awful fare. How can a restaurant serve up such awful cod and chips/ homemade burger and chips? It was the worst meal I've had in 20 years.
love to dine out

Having read the review of this restaurant I was a little nervous stopping at this place but my fears were changed as I noticed that they have new signs up saying under new management. I was informed that it has been under new management since May 09 and the carvery that was once served all day was now gone and that they offer a full Al‘ carte menu. I must say they offered me a great meal with value for money. I will stop here again on my way back and forth from Dublin to Limerick.

We stopped there for a meal and where kind of dissapointed. The food was average. My boyfirend had the roast beef I had chicken breast. THe beef was fine. but the chicken very dry. The vegatables must have been on the hot plate for hours and were far to overdone. Overall good portions of food of not so reat quality.

Had a beautiful meal here with my boyfriend and his parents recently. The food was lovely, the staff very pleasant, and the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable.
