The service is ok but the food is average at best. They seem to think the bigger the portion the better the food. In fact its very off putting. Would I return? No because there is far better places to eat.

Having dined in the Tilley Lamp on numerous occasions and delighted with the food and service, we decided to treat ourselves once again to the culinary delights in the Tilley Lamp. As always - we were not disappointed. The Staff go out of their way to ensure that there is a "home from home" ambience. We were escorted to our table by a charming waitress - Eimear - who immediately made us feel so welcome. We were glad that we had booked a table as the restaurant was buzzing. There was a very relaxed atmosphere and our drinks order was taken immediately. The drinks were brought to our table and menus given to each guest in our company. The extensive menu meant that we were spoilt for choice and a few minutes later another charming waitress - Gemma - took our order with her endearing smile.
Our food arrived very shortly afterwards and again without any fuss. As always the food was delicious and everyone in our company commented on the variety of the main courses that we ordered as well as the extensive side orders - which were included in the price - no hidden extras as is the case in many restaurants nowadays.
The dessert menu was very impressive and certainly home-made - this is a true luxury as many restaurants serve desserts which have been bought in frozen - not the case with the Tilley Lamp. Enda and Eilish - the owners were on hand to ensure that everything went smoothly but one of our party remarked that the Staff had everything in hand. Obviously Enda and Eilish put a lot of thought into Staff training and it certainly pays off. Having finished our meal, we relaxed over a few drinks and again treated with courteousness from every member of Staff. As I previously mentioned we have dined in the Tilley Lamp on numerous occasions - it certainly is 5 star - all the way for us. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Congratulations to Enda, Eilish and all the Staff!

Just because they serve MOUNDS of food to you it does't make it taste better! Service was ok but the food was very average. Not really much else round the area so I guess thats why they go. Try somewhere decent and I doubt you will be back.

I decided to take my family out for dinner and was delighted with the warm welcoming atmosphere, buzz of conversation and fabulous scents wafting from the kitchen. The menu choices were extensive, the staff were accommodating and the quality of the local produce made for an excellent meal! I can highly recommend the American style chicken and steak, which I asked to be filleted. The meats were succulent and tender, the garlic butter and sauce accompaniment was fabulous! The desserts in offered were varied; the feather light cheesecake had a heavenly texture and my other family members spoke highly of the Jaffa orange sponge! I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough! Whether it is a quite meal with family or a night out with friends the Tilly lamp has an award winning atmosphere!
