50th Birthday dinner

Rated 5.0 out of 5

My husband, turned 50 yesterday the 16th of November. I booked dinner for 6.30pm for 8 adults and three children. We were welcomed by Gillian and brought into the bar which has a roaring fire on…we sat in armchairs and had a drink while the took our orders. It was the first night of their winter menu and it didn’t disappoint. We were brought to our table and moments later our starter arrived. Not a single complaint about anything. The spring rolls were huge! Our main courses arrived at the perfect amount of time between courses and everyone cleaned their plates. I especially loved the honey roasted parsnips…delicious. I’m a dessert fan and always save myself for it…it was amazing. I had the carrot cake with carrot sorbet….heaven on a plate…everyone loved their meal and the birthday boy has done nothing but rave about the food since. Thank you all for making his birthday such a pleasurable one that none of us will forget. Keep up the amazing work….you need to do culinary classes…and I’d be there.

Go neiri an tadh libh.
