Words escape me to describe the amazing meal my family and I had in Brocka on the Bank Holiday weekend. From the minute we stepped inside we were welcomed and made feel at home. It was an absolute treat to relax by the fire and enjoy a drink while our food was being prepared. The service was 5 star and... More

It must have been my fourth occasion this time round and we had the whole place booked for a celebration. It was my... More

Our family of 7 dined with Anne and her staff. It was THE dining experience of our trip to Ireland. From the moment we stepped inside, we felt like we were transported into another world. Our table was elegantly appointed and our food, a culinary journey of taste, texture, and freshness. I would recommend highly that you seek an opportunity... More

With a setting drenched in atmosphere, from the comfortable and thoroughly welcoming waiting area through an eclectic dining area, with peacocks wandering about outside and an evening sun setting the nearby lake alight, this is a dining experience not to be missed. The food is local, seasonal, and, most important, amazing. A great wine list finishes off this unsurpassed dishes... More

Great food here. Better for smaller groups. We booked the entire restaurant and it was a little squashed. There was no starter but the main and dessert was so good. Good service.
