Had a meal at Societi recently. Service was top notch and attentive. We were advised about the specials...there were loads of really delicious choices. The Tomato soup, believe it or not, was exceptional. Mains were a choice of mainly meat dishes. The choice went to a Lamb shank which was not to big. The sauce and mash were superb. The wine list is vast, we ended up having the Waterford CAb, which complimented the Lamb Shank perfectly. No place for dessert, but we finished off a wonderful evening with a few tots of World class Van Ryn's 12 yr Brandy. we will be returning soon.

Was recommended this place by the B&B where we were staying.
The place did not live up to my expectation. Very few options for vegetarians
The best dish -Mushroom Risotto- excellent. But nothing more... Wifey ordered the fish of the day salad - but was not happy
Would have expected better guidance from the servers
Definitely not value for money at all

Oh the joy of going to Societi! I am a regular patron here and I love it each time - for real. The food is great the atmosphere is great and the service is good! The food is the winner though - I have yet to try their new Autumn menu. I will miss the Duck and the Heather Parker! #yum
