As we live in Waringstown, we eat out in Planter's regularly. I'd say it's one of the best bits about living in the area :)

The food is hearty, you get a healthy portion. It's always good quality and tasty, and the menu is varied. Even the vegetarian options are a "good feed".

Service is polite and down-to-earth. Robbie in particular is always welcoming and good craic.
It's very popular at weekends (you really need to book), so it can get busy. The food is worth waiting for, so sit back and relax.

Well, the food is just great. Have been several times and it has always been delicious. The menu is quite extensive so it is impossible not to find something you like.
In our last trip in Jan 2014 we also had some drinks and played a few games of pool. The bar staff were friendly and more than helpful in opening up the 2nd bar, with the pool table, for us to have a few games. Even got the heaters all fired up to keep us cosy :)
Went in December 2013 and the only comment was that the lady serving our food was noticeably unfriendly - she wasn't exactly rude, but just not very welcoming either. Just not the norm. But the food (as always) was lovely! Have been since and the staff were great again, so hopefully just a one off and the server was having a bad night.
Will definitely be back! :D

The best part was the food. Apart from that, not much else. The service was poor, they didn't come near us for 15 minutes and the waiters didn't seem like they really wanted to be there. It was also freezing they could do with heaters (or closing the doors)

Sunday evening meal with family visiting for a holiday, the restaurant was full to capacity and the atmosphere was great. Warm welcome and comfortable surroundings. It was a birthday surprise for family who had never been before, the staff were wonderful nothing was too much trouble. The menu had a great selection to suit all tastes. Food was excellent, great size portions beautifully cooked and presented.

We had a wonderful evening and would recommend a visit, we will be back soon.
