This was my 2nd visit. After taking friends from Tokyo and friends from Belfast to this little gem. Service was fast and friendly. Staff were knowledgeable and could recommend dishes from the menu. Starters arrived quickly and was amazingly good. As my friends from Tokyo said, this was some of the best sea food they have ever had. Great friendly pub atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Frederick’s Restaurant
Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Carlow

The hotel its self is lovely, and we stayed over for St Patrick’s day weekend and had a great time. We booked the restaurant as we checked in on St Patrick’s day for a meal later on the same day. We booked a table for 8 people, however there was some sort of confusion and when we turned up at the restaurant they only had a booking for 6. When I complained and explained that we were 8 people, and would not have made a booking for 6 the front of house staff just pointed to the sheet and said “it says 6”. The restaurant explained that they were busy and we couldn’t sit together. Rather than suggest solutions the staff restated the problems. I eventually asked the manager how long would it take to get us all seated together – we were all seated within 20 minutes. Once seated we did get an apology from the manager - I just wish that the front of house staff and the restaurant manager could have just said “give us 20 minutes” rather than making us feel like we were pressuring them for a seat. The next morning breakfast was served in the same restaurant and we saw that there were in fact twice as many seats available in the restaurant, just on the night they had not opened up the back of the room. After sitting down the waiting staff rushed us through the set menu, insisting we select our deserts as we ordered our meals. This made us feel a little rushed. After this however the service was in general very good, but the atmosphere was ruined by having to argue for the seat in the first place. The food was good, with an opening free taster of smoked salmon and cream cheese for us to share! I had the monk fish starter which was recommended by the waiter and was good, if a little salty. My main course of steak was also good, and the fig tart to finish with was nice too. Breakfast was great, the selection was fantastic and the freshly fried and poached eggs went down well with our group. I score the restaurant well for the food, but not as well on the atmosphere and service.
