Excellent service and very friendly staff. We were a bit picking about what we had accompanying our steak but this was no problem at all to the staff and everything was perfect. Beautiful food, lovely feeling place. Can't wait to go back.

The staff were nice and dogs are allowed which is a plus. My partners fillet steak was nice, i had the t-bone steak which i asked for medium rare. It was so thin im not sure they could have cooked it anyway but well done....More

Been here twice recently, food is excellent apart from the chips which are too thin like a crisp. Goats cheese tart was amazing. Service was slow but food didn't take long. We will go again.

Lovely pub at the top of the hill in Ashbourne, dog welcoming and a simple but lovely menu. Food was great. Staff was nice but the service was incredibly slow but would still recommend.

Dog Friendly in the bar. Pub and steakhouse. Food served right through from 12pm. Very welcoming and friendly staff. The two barmaids made a huge fuss of our spaniel/poodle cross, Lottie. Spoiling her with treats. Obviously a pub for locals who were very, warm, friendly...More

Following advice from your site headed up to this pub. Convenient parking opposite. Surprised to see them advertising themselves as a steak house, but plenty of non-meat options on offer. The barmaid insisted that we sat down and came and took our drinks order which...More

I am afraid that I do not know the answer to this question. I suggest that you phone The Bowling Green and ask if they can cater for your needs. I hope this is of use to you.
