Had a meal in The Venue on the recommendation of Strandhill Lodge Hotel staff. We didn't need to book as it was a Monday night but it was busy with locals. Nice place, pleasant staff and good food. We only had a main meal but enjoyed it. Lunch time menu looked good as well. Don't expect to be blown away... More

I had the chicken wings and Venue Burger. The meat was absolutely delicious and the roll it came on was perfect- not too soft and not too hard. The chicken wings were very nice as well. I can't wait for an excuse to come back again! Great service and nice staff. Cozy little bar at the front of the house.... More

Had a lovely Cajun chicken chiabatta here yesterday. Fresh cooked chicken spiced lovely in a chiabatta. When you walk in the door lovely bar area with roaring open fire nice after been out in cold. Follow on through to a nice dining area with lovely views of the Atlantic.staff were friendly and food was quick

The venue has a lovely atmosphere, with friendly staff and great food. The only fault I'd have is that, as a vegetarian, I felt my choices were a bit limited. Otherwise everything was lovely.

We had a tasty meal. The fish was delicious. The deserts are home made too. It was very busy. Felt a bit strange walking through the pub to get to it. I'd imagine the view is lovely during the day. I would definitely recommend a visit!

A great place to eat for couples, families and groups. Love the menu, service is always friendly and if you are there early get a table at the window at the front - the view is amazing! Only one thing for me - the menu whilst it is tried and tested - could do with a bit of a shake... More
