Stopped off here for some lunch and to watch the rugby on a Saturday afternoon. I opted for a baked potato with tuna and sweetcorn, my other half the silver tassie chicken baguette. The potato tasted off, like it had been cooked and kept for days and the bottom of the bowl was swimming in water, I ate the tuna and left the potato. The chicken baguette was just a small baguette with chicken, cheese and onion, very plain and certainly not what we expected for €13. Our bill came to €29.10 for a pint and a half of Guinness, my potato and the chicken baguette with a side of chips. High price for disgusting food, certainly will not be recommending to anyone.

We live just outside Letterkenny so we eat pretty regulary at The Silver Tassie. There food is always first class with great friendly service & value. We have also stayed in The Silver Tassie and we would highly recommend it for any occasion. They also have a Spa and a hairdressers on site both with excellent service also. I cannot recommend The Silver Tassie highly enough and we are so lucky to have it in our town!

I always suggest eating here when I come over - as it’s got a extensive menu and there’s enough for us all here to find something we like.

Every dish is delicious and the generous proportions and the ambience built up with soft furnishings and the light of candles in little glass vases, along with the open fire always make me feel that I’m home.

I love this place. I sit over by the window and you forget that the other half is a bar with sport in the TV’s - it’s considerably well thought out.

Friendly efficient staff - I haven’t regretted a single meal that I’ve had here over the last 14 years.

We ate in both the Hotel Restaurant and Bar during our stay in the hotel and the food was delicious each time.
All the staff are polite and friendly and the service was great, attentive but not intrusive.
The restaurant is spacious and comfortable, as is the bar and both are spotlessly clean.
