This house has a long history, having been originally called Glassan Cottage. it is possible that it was the home for the manager of the adjoining mill. we had a booking for 7 so we were put in the right hand room. An old room featuring an ancient fireplace and skillet and crane. It has character.
The menu was wide ranging and adventurous.
My fish entree was far too big for an entree- it was effectively a main course- but tasted very good. My main course followed the same high standard of food.
service was careful but not overwhelming.
The all day earlybird menu is €30 which is good value for the type of meal served.

8 of us were there on Tuesday 17th July. The staff were superb and each one of us said our meals were amazing. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We had a memorable meal starting with smoked salmon and then mouthwateringly tender lamb. The restaurant is in an old school house which made it more of “an occasion” than dinner at Grogans. Both are excellent but for sheer dining pleasure I’d pick this place. The service was perfect: attentive but not intrusive.

Just north of Athlone is the village of Glasson, and it is there you will find this amazing restaurant.
The presentation of the building inside and out is very nicely done.

But the true making of any restaurant is it’s food and staff.

The staff we experienced were great, polite and very helpful.

The food, OMG !!! To die for.

Well cooked, presented great and plentiful, so much in fact we could fit dessert in.

The chef(s) cannot be faulted, the quality of our meal was superb.

Oh and as a important side note, there is plenty of off street parking at the rear just down and off the side road.

I was looking forward to eating here for a long time but was unfortunately disappointed. We had the Sunday lunch and it was like the food was just thrown on the plate with no imagination. The veg all squashed on a small plate with the mash too. The lamb was so thin and spread across the plate with one small but not crispy roast Potatoe. The dessert was cooked well but in the menu stated honeycomb ice cream but was vanilla. The staff were friendly but disorganised bringing the wrong food to the table. This place was just not to my taste or standards.
