Decided to visit on a recommendation from a friend. Quirky little restaurant as the name would suggest. Decor nice nothing that blew me away though. Tables quite close to each other so you could hear other customers conversation and interactions with staff. I had to put my jacket on as I got a little bit cold as we ate our... More

Mediocre food and appalling service from Mangement. Be wary of wood splinters at edge of the table, these wreck your clothes and management rudely advise "natural part of the product." Very disappointed! I will certainly not be recommending.

Really disappointed with our visit to The Cottage after a member of the family had an item of clothing ripped by a splintered wooden table. We called the manager over to discuss what had happened and we were appalled by the level of customer service he appeared to lack. After refusing to admit the fault the manager threatened to call...

What can I say about this gem: great food, great location, great staff. It was the most delightful surprise the first time I had dinner in the Cottage. I love Asian food and was completely won over by this unique blend of local produce and traditions and the chef's Asian cooking culture. The space itself is lovely, perfect for a... More

Where else would you go to when the whole restaurant sings happy birthday to you?! This restaurant is all about cuisine and atmosphere. With a new layout in recent years, there is a lovely warmth in the main room. The food is exceptional, the best of Irish produce cooked with an Asian twist. There doesn't need to be an occasion,...

Quality of food is excellent and service to match. Only complaint, and its minor is the light music played is similar to that when visiting the dentist! Highly recommended.

Starter was so so . But the main course and the selection of desserts made up for it . They were amazing . It's hard to get a restaurant that makes all their own desserts any more and Thai restaurant did not fail us . Will return if ever near again

The food is indisputably great : I've never been disappointed : it can't hold loads of people in the restaurant - so it feels personal: If I had the power - I would buy smaller tables ( they've just got softer lovely chairs ) so one can chat better with one's companion (!) and I'd kill off the echo with...

The Cottage is a firm favourite for a dinner date. We normally eat here about once a month and the food and service is outstanding. A real gem.

Went to celebrate two of my sons birthdays. The food was excellent, service excellent, had a lovely evening. The portions are very good, main course is served with selection of vegetables, plenty for all. The venue is small and cosy. The kitchen can be seen from the Resturant and appeared spotless and very well run. It appears quite expensive, but... More
