Top class lunch and great service. Also very good value. In the evening they set a great atmosphere with candles everywhere and class cocktails. I go regularly for lunch at the carvery and it's always very tasty. They always offer to bring you tea or coffee before you leave and a bickie. They need to be complimented for excellent service...

Excellent large steaks in here. We stayed in the Slieve Russel hotel but most of the residents were in here for steaks! Looking forward to visiting again.
