Had a lovely meal in the bar. We opted for a la carte wings, seafood pasta and burger and we were not dissappointed. Would recommend the good food and service at the White house.

Fantastic lunch. Sat in the bar area and we had excellent service. Menu is the same in bar or restaurant. Lamb stew is a MUST try. Chikkers wrap was also very tasty. Atmosphere is friendly with a hometown feel.

Called on off chance whilst visiting Kinsale, the restaurant was full and very busy but the Manager arranged a table for us after a short wait. Food was very good, including the Vegan option and the staff were very accommodating and attentive.
