We'd heard good things yet forgotten about this place. Then we saw it from the road as we drove by. So we drove up the long picturesque driveway and in. We'd no idea what to expect as we drove through the metal gates. We found a large garden centre, a fruit & veg grocery type shop with health & organic foods, breads and a substantial cafe, our chief interest was the cafe. It's a bit of a building site too with toilets a pretty far walk across a yard in a different building to the cafe. We sat at one of many chunky old chairs at chunky old tables, with other bits of old furniture littered about. When we sat down we were offered water from a glass jug. The water in the jug had a thin slice of cucumber and a lemon slice. The glass jug had lots of tiny oxygen bubbles forming on the inside as it was obviously sitting long enough to warm up, drawing nitrogen and oxygen out of the water. It was not unpleasant but I prefer my water colder especially in the summer such as it is. We gave our order. Along with excellent tasting small latte and small cappuccino (€3 each and 50 cent extra each for large) we had a potato & minestrone soup, served with wheaten bread and a pat of butter wrapped in paper (the soup was very tasty indeed at €5) it was a generous serving too. They did not offer a soup and sandwich deal. We also had a St Tola goat cheese on walnut bread with lettuce, warm beetroot & warm red apple slivers, enhanced with a few tiny bits of fried garlic served on a wooden board. This turned out to be open sandwich style with the soft persil white cheese spread unevenly on thin sliced walnut bread. This is a mild cheese. It is not at all tart with little discernible salt added, so on the scale of goat it's very pleasant but with the portion size and accompaniments I don't think its worth €7. Cow's milk and goat's milk have similar overall fat contents with the higher proportion of medium-chain fatty acids such as caproic, caprylic and capric acid in goat's milk contributing to the characteristic tart flavour of many goat's milk cheeses. These fatty acids take their name from the Latin for goat: capra. It was a busy place and it's obviously well supported. There were a few other minor irritations. As part of our order was soup we asked for the cappuccino later but we had to ask for it. I also observed a young mum struggle with a baby under one arm as she carried a high chair to her table. There were sufficient staff to have given her proper help rather than watch as she struggled by. Those minor irritating things observed the food and coffees are really very good and the cafe comfortable with lots of atmosphere so we'll be back. Hopefully there'll be a competitive soup and sandwich deal next time.

Our party of 13 thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Strandfield. The wonderful hearty soups and freshly made bread, eggs and toast and fresh fruit provided an ample and reasonably priced lunch. The simple menu is wholesome, tasty and fresh. The large sunfilled conservatory is a wonderful spot for a relaxing group brunch, and the staff were more than accommodating with our large party.

Far too expensive for snack food! Much nicer and less expensive places to eat in Dundalk, Carlingford and Blackrock...... apart from Strandfield House! We've been a few times......but we won't be returning!
