I visited here after attending an event in the handball complex close to it when the games ended for a break, looks like everyone else had the same idea and the kitchen was absolutely hammered with orders. This meant service was a little slower but that didn't matter as the food was well worth waiting for! I had the chicken... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. It was busy but staff were lovely and we got served quickly. We both had the fish and chips which was really good, the batter was nice and light and crispy and the chips were just perfect, thick cut and crispy.

We popped in here for some lunch and must say the staff and food were superb. Just a normal bar which offer sports in front and a bistro/restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the Cabra Castle Hotel. We had three very good meals. The waitress recommended the Cajun pasta and it was excellent. Our son's fish meal was very large and tasty. Service was a bit slow.

The best place to get a bite to eat in the area. I always keep coming back here as the service is fantastic and the food is incredibly good value for money. I've been in for lunch and dinner and every time had been a great experience. Well run establishment with some great surrounding atmosphere.

My two "school friends" Nuala and Mary and myself meet up every 2 months. We go way back!!! This particular evening we met up in The Wishing Well. The usual "catch-up" and renewing business. The three of all actually went with stir fries (nothing whatsoever to do with Slimming World, yeah right!!) . The service was so fast we didn't... More
