“Best in Birr ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Great value good food, there was a good set menu for 22.50, I had cod which was excellent. The starters were probably over complicated, having prawns with capers and mango was just too many strong flavours competing. Other than this small blip, a great meal and we'll recommended

“Lunch Here On A Sunny Day Can't Be Beat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Have eaten dinner here a couple of times in the winter but went for lunch one day.
The location on the Offaly side of the river overlooking a beautiful old bridge is really nice.
The lunch menu was as good as the dinner menu with the same quality service and value for money.
I've never eaten a better meal in such a pretty location as here. When you're done eating you can walk across the bridge to Tipperary and enjoy the small town of Riverside too.
The only suggestion is that they clean up the mess at the back of the restaurant and hide the dumpsters behind a blind as that's the first impression many guest will get. Filling in some of the potholes would help too. Most of this is forgotten once you enter the restaurant though.

“Excellent food beautiful location..this is a must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

We visited this restaurant by chance while in the area. The location is excellent looking out onto the River which was so peaceful. We went at lunchtime and the food was of a very high standard. They make their own bread and jam sauces to accompany the dishes. The food was the best I have ever eaten and we were just sorry that we hadn't found it earlier as I would definately have gone for an evening meal there. It is very reasonably priced, has a lovely wine choice and it is spotless. Everything is made fresh and with the best local produce. I couldn't recommend this restaurant enough, we were very impressed with it. The staff are lovely and very helpful.
