“a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

we went on a Sunday and the food was just ok nothing out of the ordinary or special. The staff were friendly but seemed to be waiting on people to finish.

“Forgettable!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Went over on Sunday evening past. Everything was just average. The menu was very limited, one chicken dish. My mother found it really difficult to choose something. We waited a long time to order but the staff were friendly. There seems to be some confusion over the a la carte service and casual dining. At points it was very professional but then some standard practices were overlooked. No reason not to go back but again no reason to go!!!

Thank you for your review of Cartin's Mill as all constructive feedback helps us to ensure a pleasant experience for future customers. As on a Sunday evening we have available both our Early Bird and Full Evening menu with a total of 26 dishes, I am somewhat confused as to how the choice was limited on your visit. We do always try to offer an off menu dish if a customer has special dietary requirements and customers would normally let us know if there was something in particular that they would like. I do hope you will visit again and have an enjoyable experience.

“Not great!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Went last night with a few friends as a get together for a mate returning from America. Waited ages for someone to come take a drink order off us and a food order. Some staff were lovely but most seemed unapproachable and unexperienced. Food was average, not really worth the price in my opinion! The only good point was that the place was clean and tidy and the food was hot and we got everything we ordered

Hi. Thank you for your review.
I am disappointed that you were not fully impressed with your experience with us. I do wish you had brought this to my attention on Saturday evening as I was present in the restaurant all evening and only received excellent feedback from everyone I spoke to. It does make it much easier to rectify any problem was may exist if it is identified at the time.
Many Thanks
Shane.

Has a tasty meal here last night. Service was good and staff very attentive. We had 2 courses and both very good. Steaks were cooked just as we asked and good portion sizes. Would defiantly recommend.
