The most christmassy dining room in Drogheda! This beautiful dining room is a lovely backdrop to exceptional service and amazing local food. It’s not cheap but a wonderful treat that never disappoints.

I met visiting friends here for dinner and had a most enjoyable evening. The "gastro-pub" is cozy and the tables felt intimate even though the room (the bar) was full. Candles, a fire and lots of interesting furniture made it special. We ordered only main...More
