When I pass by the restaurant... More

Its a pity when bad staff and unpleasant treatment can spoil a positive experience and colour your view of a restaurant. This is a favourite lunch & dinner haunt and at Christmas, we always book a group lunch here. We love the location, the food and the ambiance. This year, having enquired several weeks ago, I had to fill in... More

After lots of Irish food it was great to take a break with some elevated cuisine at The Green Hen. Seafood, braised meats, chicken, steaks and sides all very good. Good wine list as well.

I have eaten here a great many times over the last five years or so. I have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the service friendly and efficient. They change the menu frequently so there is always something new to try. The restaurant is cosy and is usually buzzing so booking is advisable, although we have found... More

As for the staff so friendly and helpful in every way. The Hospitality we received was top notch. I will definatly be back.... More

Visited for first time at weekend with friends for lunch. Staff are very friendly and professional. Lunch menu had a good selection of courses at a fantastic price! Lovely atmosphere and decor! Difficult to read specials written in white chalk on mirror background!

I have visited a number of times, enjoying both the pre theatre and the a la carte menus. The food is very tasty and well cooked. The duck leg confit stands out as one of my favourite dishes.

We went to this restaurant without a reservation in the hope we might just get a meal before going to the theatre. It was early evening and getting a table was not a problem. From the moment we sat down in this very pleasent place we were well looked after. We choose to have the 2-course set menu. The food... More
