We booked Hartley\'s for a memorial lunch for our mother\'s anniversary at 3.30 on a Saturday for a group of six adults. We s a group have dined there in the past. The dining room is a very impressive room with very high ceilings. This restaurant used to be our late father\'s favourite. restaurant.We had a drink at the bar while waiting to be seated. We were seated in the main room at a table which realistically was suites to a group of four despite the tables beside our table being unused. The waitress who took our order seemed at best distracted and at worst disinterested. She gave the impression that we were at best an irritation. We ordered a mix of set lunch menu and Al a Carte.Starters were served promptly and were very pleasant. Attention for drinks orders was hit and miss. Mains were served and again there were no complaints with the quality of the food served. However I would have to say that the standard of service is severely lacking in Hartleys. It is evident that the staff have had little or no training and there appears to be little or no management present. Our bill for 6 claim to €454.00 for 6 people excluding service charges or tip. Did this feel like money well spent. Unfortunately not. Hartleys is a lovely setting with decidedly average service and average food. Will we be returning soon. Unfortunately not on today\'s showing. I give Hartleys atbest a 2 out of 5 rating. Has potential but must try a lot harder.
