We went out to the woodenbridge last thursday to have dinner in the Bar. Now i've been going here occasionally since i made my communion years ago and every other family occasion growing up I remember coming here. The bar's walls are covered with like all old pictures and it's interesting when your waiting on your food or wandering back from the restaurant to have a look at them and it has a warm, cosy feel about it you feel really comfortable in the surroundings. So to get down to the food; There's a good selection on the menu, you usual pub grub with that little but extra (if that makes sense). Well i had the Tiger Prawns to start I love seafood (prawns especiallly) so if they're on a menu i usual get them. They were tasty now the filo pastry was nice and crispy and they came with a huge side salad that i couldn't finish. For mains I had the I think its a boxty burger it was a huge beef burger served on like a bed of mash with onions which was can I just say delicious it's kind of like bangers and mash but burgers and mash very tasty definitely recommend people to try this. As usual I couldn't fit in a dessert but my friend got the Apple strudel and I sampled it and it had just the right amount of cinnamon in it. (the only complaint I have is that we did have to wait a bit but i'm an impatient person) The waiters/waitresses were very friendly and attentive.And as we were finishing up this group were starting to play old irish music which created a great atmosphere and suited the surroundings perfectly i thought. It's a nice kind of get away to get of of the town to the woodenbridge because it's only around ten minutes from arklow so it's a handy drive.

The Soya Bean has to be one of the nicest chinese take-aways/restaurants in Arklow town. The take aways are really nice but to really experience the food you have to go into the restaurant. Its decorated chinese style and the waitresses wear chinese dresses and it's a great atmosphere and the staff are friendly and very polite. But the food is amazing they have this deal at the moment where you can get a any starter, main course and dessert from their menu for €16. The menu is very comprhensive too has such a vareity on it. I had the salt and pepper chilli praws for starter (the presentation of it was brilliant they carved a swan out of a turnip to decorate the starter and the collours are fantastic on the plate.) For Main I had the Chicken Chow Mein which I always get and it's always delicious ( they bring it out on a hot plate and put it in the centre of the table which I think is a nice touch because I love the fact that everyone can just share their dishes and help themselves to a bit of everything. For Dessert I had the Orange Sorbet which was the perfect light dessert and the sorbet is served in a whole orange which presented nicely. I just think that they're attention to detail is fantastic and the food is delicious.

Lisgrey House Restaurant Bar
Lisgrey Cross Roads, Virginia, Cavan

We've been here a few times and the food is excellent.On one occasion we had the fahitas that are carried out in this rack like thing which holds the sauces, the wraps etc, which I thought was very good presentation of the food and fun to eat. But one thing that they do perfect are the Sirloin Steaks, I had the best steak I've ever eaten from here 5 Star for the food and it's reaonable priced too another thing that is absolutely delicious are their garlic potatoes, You have to try them they're Superb. The staff are very friendly too and it seems like its a restaurant/bar that caters for all.
