Presentation of food, quality of food, faultless service all in very pleasant surroundings. Menu changes monthly- but could anything on it - good variety meeting all tastes and needs. Assiettes are always top value- but it all is. Never been disappointed.

I had the mixed vegetarian platter to start and the baked aubergine. Vegetarian food is often uninspiring but both dishes were excellent. Would also recommend the apple pancakes - one of the best desserts I've eaten! My husbands bread and butter pudding was equally good.

Stayed in the Ashbourne area for a week and Lamplight stood head and shoulders above other restaurants we checked out. Very atmospheric , cosy dining area with magnificent oak beams. Service very professional and food excellent in quality, taste and vale for money.
