I visited with my children and a friend with her children. Friendly polite staff took our order and brought our cakes and drinks over to us. We each tried different cake and all loved our choices. I had Victoria sponge gorgeously yummy homemade cake. Nice cosy atmosphere too. Reasonable prices.

Decent place for coffee and good selection of cakes. They also do light meals which are very nice. This is a good place to take family or other visitors to the area or spend an hour or so, in preference to one of the ubiquitous chain coffee shops.

Very highly recommend the herb centre Bistro. The food is excellent, reasonably priced with a good selection. Particularly love the tasty Sunday roasts and the home made cakes are delicious. The staff are extremely warm & friendly. Can't wait for my next visit !

Dear Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaary I find this review exceptionally hard to believe. My wife is currently pregnant and regularly eats up here. Our chefs are exceptionally thorough in ensuring stock is rotated and that food is only kept within the guidelines of the HSE. Our working practices are good and we have a 5 star rating for food hygiene. Please could you... More

This is a pleasant place which people clearly travel out to. The staff are very pleasant & the food very well cooked & presented, though quite pricey for some items... Not perhaps a place to eat frequently, but well worth it from time to time.

We attended last weekend with friends and little people for Sunday lunch. The staff were very helpful and set up a table for us upstairs. Children's meals came before ours as requested and they seemed to enjoy them. Majority of us had roast beef which i found to be tasty, a good choice of veg and cooked well. Unfortunately my... More
