Description: We are a family run business in Co. Roscommon, in the West of Ireland serving fresh, locally sourced ingredients. A lot of thought and effort goes into our dishes and we have built up great relationships with our local suppliers. Our aim is to provide our customers with great quality food in a comfortable and interesting environment and with great customer service. We serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinners. We accommodate people passing that need a coffee fix with takeaway coffees and stock some local and Irish products for the browsers! The restaurant is situated beside Lough Ree harbor, a beautiful playground, and St. Johns woods. Lecarrow is a beautiful little village and we hope to enhance it with our restaurant.

We dined here and had an excellent meal in a homely athmosphere. The staff were excellent and were super helpful with dietary requirements. I cannot reccomend it highly enough.

The Yew Tree is about 15 mins outside Roscommon Town, which wasn't too far to go for such a great meal. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and cosy. We were served by the owner, who was really friendly and polite. I had the seafood platter, which was cooked perfectly. We got a portion of veg and baby potatoes, which were also really nice, although we didn't manage to make it through them all! Dessert was also delicious, and even though it was close to closing time when we were there we weren't rushed out of the place at all. A great meal, I wish I lived nearby!

Its a little out of the way but well worth the drive - we got a very hearty welcome and found ourselves seated near a wonderfully cosy stove in a very tastefully decorated room. I had the Tandoori Chicken and my girlfriend had the seafood platter - both tasted excellent. The food was beautifully presented and the portions were more than enough. They were so good we stayed for desert. Definitely try this place out.

Had dinner there last night having been recommended by the owners of Alverna House. The food was delicious---electic menu very creative. Loved the deep fried tiger prawns. The duck was amazing- cooked to perfection. Better than some of the best restaurants in New York City. The banoffi for dessert was fabulous.

Had heard good reports on the Yew Tree. Visited one Sunday afternoon. It was not very busy in the restaurant and we were seated straight away. Not great choices on the menu and only the basic choices for children. Portions were not very generous, chicken was overcooked and dry and no great effort appeared to have been made in presentation. I didn't feel that the food had been freshly prepared. Was very disappointed with the overall meal
