Superb setting overlooking the garden on a super sunny summers day. Food was of a very high standard with temptations all around for the foodie especially the sugar toothed. As expected slightly on the expensive side but excellent quality, great taste in a super location.

We stopped here before we did the fairy trail and everything looked so tasty. It was packed with loads of different people, some there for a quick visit, some for dinner and wine, and everything looked so tasty.

Before visiting the castle we needed some lunch and a coffee and on looking at all the lovely foods decided on a plateful of the different salads. There was such a good selection and really enjoyed all the different flavours.

If it's a special occasion do call in before or phone ahead as they do sometimes reserve tables depending on the time of day. Always worth checking with them! Orla is one of the managers at the moment.

They always have a few coeliac options, one soup is always coeliac friendly and they generally can make up any sandwiches on gluten free bread. They have lots of cakes and sweet treats for coeliacs too! Just ask the staff
