My wife and I made a return visit to Scholars restaurant last night. It was very nice to be greeted by name by the same friendly staff. One man took our coats while another led us to our table. The menu had been updated ; some old favourites and some new courses. The waiters are well informed on the content... More

I have had lunch three times and dinner twice since October 2016 and every time have noticed a decline in the choice of dishes, the quality of dishes and the service. I understand... More

Brent, "Historically you always had praise for this place" where are the good reviews! You seem to be an accomplished reviewer and so as you said in your own review that you always had praise for us why not give an account of your good experience as well as your bad experiences...... I do believe you are totally inaccurate in... More

Just a short walk from the center of Drogheda, Scholars Townhouse is a quiet and comfortable hotel. The restaurant is nice and the service is very good. Taxi service is very quick to arrive.
