The Penne Pasta with smoked breast of chicken is an excellent dish, flavourful and well portioned. The fish and chips is a pleasant meal at an economical price. Service was very good.

We eat at Willies on a regular basis as this is the best restaurant in Biblehill. The food is well prepared and tastes great, the service is very good. We highly recommend Roadside Willies.

A group of us had lunch last week & I ordered a "new-to-me " menu item which I had wanted to try for some time. The seafood dip with grilled flatbreads was so good & the added small Caesar salad was just perfectly satisfying.
