The restaurant is very good with great food and very friendly waiting staff. The specials are worth having, the Sunday Roast is excellent and good value. The wine list offers a wide choice of good wines at reasonable prices.More

Description
Established in 2007, Lord Cardigan Restaurant is the brainchild of husband and wife team, John Singer and Dominique Bolger. Lord Cardigan’s conception was an obvious choice for the couple, John’s passion and commitment to creating thoughtful and beautifully presented dishes, using only the freshest ingredients of the season, combined with Dominique’s warmth and affable style front-of house, creates a mood of quiet indulgence. We look forward to sharing the Lord Cardigan experience with you.
