Food here is good. Had the burger and salmon. Recommend the Creme brûlée for dessert. Open fire which makes it cosy. Can be noisy if large groups at the bar and drafty with all the open doors.

Recently went there for lunch with family. It's a nice room overlooking the golf course, hence the name! I had very mixed feelings on my visit. This at the end of the day is bar food as the main restaurant is Hugo's. The food was pretty nice overall but have to say pretty expensive - not many places are going... More

I felt we had been overlooked as eventually my husband had to ask for menus and for our drinks order to be taken. The wait for our meal was rather longer than we would have expected but we pleasantly surprised when a waiter apologised and got us a free drink each, ( we had been patiently waiting and had not...

The bar snacks are really tasty and they will do alternative food requests to what's on the menu. ie something simple like a chip butty, give it a try!

Great service. Every taste catered for. You can have food at the bar. There's a BBQ during the week on the deck outside. It's spacious with sofa's and arm chairs too. Overlooks the golf course, very nice.

This must have been the worst and most expensive 'Pub Grub'I ever experienced. I would have thought a hotel of this standard could have better food on offer they certainly should pay a visit to Newtown Mount Kennedy Inn where we lunched the previous day. I wish we had made the short trip back there for our lunch. I asked... More

The food was delicious and the surroundings stunning if you are able to get a seat in the conservatory. They have a good selection on their menu (the beer batter fish is to die for) and they cater very well for those who have allergies. The staff were excellent, nothing was ever a bother and they were so pleasant and... More

A good selection on the menu for adults but expect to pay in the region of €60 for lunch for two adults and two kids. It was good but only good. Had lunch in a bistro nearby for the same money but we left completely satisfied that we got great value for money and the kids menu was good wholesome... More

Especially during school holidays. Hard to get a seat / table but the service is good at least. Food not bad (but not great either)
