The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic. The building has a lovely interior that made our evening dining feel warm and cosy. Good selection of food on menu

A nice place in the beautiful and historic village of Borris. Had a bar lunch here with friends, pre booked, recently. A pleasant tomato soup was followed by Classic Caesar Salad which, in my opinion and those with me was anything but Caesar Salad that I have come to expect from many years of travel. Service, while pleasant, was desperately... More

I can't remember if I've written a review of this restaurant (or its associated hotel), but if I haven't then shame on me because, in the past, it's been nothing less than superb, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner: 5/5! We loved the little things like the fact that, at breakfast, we didn’t end up with a miniature waste dump... More

Breakfast was lovely. Egg was cooked perfectly. Sausage and Irish bacon was first rate quality and executed nicely. Homemade jams sent the meal over the top. Very friendly service and prompt execution. Reasonable prices. A good find.

We were staying in Greenan for a couple days and ventured into Borris one night for dinner. Finding StepHouse Restaurant was a lucky find. Definitely would need to make reservations because it is attached to a hotel. Service was friendly, but a little slow. The food however was well worth the wait. Places like this help to dispel the rumors... More

I love this place and stop as often as I can. Perfect restaurant for family occasions, friends meeting up, couples celebrating, dining solo. The food is excellent. At lunch have the soup - it's always scrummy and a large portion which hits the spot. Many dishes are gluten free and staff always will assist with dietary needs. Walk around Borris,... More

We had deep fried haddock and chicken. With wine, desserts, tea, it came to 63 euro excluding tip which is average for hotel restaurant prices. The previous evening we had a bar snack which was promptly served.
