Restaurant was far too busy especially as there was a large wedding being held in the hotel. Service was poor and unfriendly - it costs nothing to smile! Meal was cold but couldn't get the attention of the staff. Burger was very dry. Reasonable price but woud rather pay a bit more for a better standard of both food and service.
Made reservation online and received both a confirmation and a rejection so had to ring to check situation!

Passing through Kilkenny and visited the super Castle, as it was lunchtime we were recommended Langtons for lunch which we located after a short walk.

We ordered fish & chips and a couple of drinks. The meal was very poor for the price, 3 goujons of what was supposed to be cod, a portion of over cooked oven chips and a ramekin of what we're according to the menu mushy peas but resembled just tinned processed peas poorly drained.

The service was ok but the ambiance was of a pub full of hen and stag parties, very noisy. Overall for what we ordered the experience was very poor value for money. One small sparkling water, one cider and two inferior main courses €32.00.

We won't be back, there must be far better places for a decent lunch in the city of Kilkenny.

Dined here recently for my mother's 70th. There were lots of hens parties aswell and was quiet noisey. Anyways we ordered, I had just started my starter when I discovered a piece of plastic in it(from a bottle). The manager couldn't apologise enough and offered a replacement but I was gone off my food by then. I did get a free glass of wine. My sister was given the wrong starter and wrong main course. She didn't say anything as we didn't want to spoil the evening for my Mam. They did really well with the gluten free cake for my Mam, it was really nice. While there were good and bad points I don't think I'll be rushing back.

The service was so slow, had to get my own menus off bar den took ages for anyone to come to us but food did come quick once we got to eventually order it.
They never came back after we had meal finished to order anything else etc and I had to call them for the tea and coffees that were ordered at start to be bought over!!
This needs to be addressed as the food is good but bad service puts a damper on this
