Just had a birthday lunch at the oarsman & every bite was absolutely delicious. Beautifully presented by lovely staff. I had the veggie plate & it was some of the best vegetarian food I've had. There was goats cheese parcel, cous cous, fritter, hummus, roasted parsnip & beetroot puree & it was really flavoursome & perfectly balanced. It worked to well. I work in a vegetarian kitchen myself so really appreciated the quality & creativity of this plate. My sister had the trout & she loved it. Our lovely waitress Tracy told the chef it was our birthday so our desert plates came beautifully decorated with happy birthdays. Pear & almond tart was divine. Have been before & will be back again....best restaurant in Carrick bar none. Thanks so much for making our birthday lunch so enjoyable & memorable.

Had a delicious family meal after visit to Lough Key Forest Park. Relaxed friendly atmosphere and super tasty food for a family of 5 including 3 children. Live music and fire added to the atmosphere.

We were there as a family of 6 including 3 children and we all had a fantastic meal. It was a cold Tuesday evening and they had fires lighting and a great friendly staff. The food is well known to be excellent and we were not disappointed. The kids meal was delicious too. Around 7pm a guy on a guitar set up beside us and he was brilliant. Gorgeous versions of songs everyone knows. Really really good experience and fabulous food.

Beautiful place to eat, excellent food and the staff are so helpful.
We visited for a family meal from a boat on the river, we had our little dog. They accommodated us by setting a table outside under a bridge. The food was so good I took work colleagues sometime later and again we were not disappointed.
Excellent food, staff and ambience. Nothing missing !
