My husband and I really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. My husband had a T-bone steak and I enjoyed a steak and ale pie. Relaxed atmosphere, we were left to enjoy the meal and staff were about as and when we needed them.

Excellent "locals" pub, friendly staff. Great food and good choice of beer & wines. Just outside Ashbourne town centre, probably need to book for evenings as gets busy.

The steak was massive. I don't think all the extras you get (onion rings, balsamic vinegar drenched salad, corn on the cob enhanced the steak. I still ate everything as I was starving.

The food cannot be faulted. The staff are attentive and give great service. My only reason for not giving full marks is that dining area away from the bar is a little clinical.

We visited this pub for lunch while staying in the area and glad we did. We both had the Balmoral Chicken with haggis. The food was so tasty and the chips were amazing. Even though there was only one lady serving behind the bar she was very attentive with drinks and bringing our food. I only wish I had room... More

Visited on Sunday lunch with group of 11 people. Service was great and excellent food choices. This was my second visit and I wanted to check that the fillet steak was as wonderful as last time and I wasn't disappointed - melt in the mouth. Everyone in the group loved the food with large portions at great value for money.... More
