I have just turned vegan from vegetarian, and my 5 friends are all meat & fish eaters - and they were not disappointed either. Quite the opposite. The challenge for me as a new vegan when dining out, is I don't want to be a burden on a chef and the waiting staff. I mentioned when booking one of us was a vegan, which they advised was no problem, and told me they would call me that day to verify meal. True to their word, they called to check if I had any allergies. Upon sitting, I was incredibly surprised (and delighted!) to have the lovely waitress come to the table discreetly to show me a handwritten vegan menu with choice of 2 starters, 2 main course, and 2 vegan desserts! I opted for the mushroom starter cooked with beautiful flavours and a homemade sourdough bread - so so tasty, and lovely and light as a starter.
Next I opted for the Thai red curry with chickpeas, courgette and other veg, with mixed colour rice. It was simply beautiful - no tinned chickpeas here (if they were, I need to find out what brand, as I soak my own at home).
Finally the dessert was either a mango sorbet or a chocolate avocado mousse. It was Outstanding! A large portion so although I only ate half of it, it wasn't for lack of desire for it.

I was so impressed with the chef and waiting staff's special effort to accommodate me, so THANK YOU Room 8 team - outstanding meal, decor, ambiance.

I've already booked my next meal for December. Highly recommend. My omnivore friends were equally delighted with their fare - go here soon!

Had dinner here last Sat night, there were 6 of us and from start to finish it was just fabulous. The Waiter was excellent and knew his stuff, the food is another matter. Just every last detail was exceptional, we ate a variety of fish, meats and Vegan dishes and cannot recommend here enough, well done to all involved, we'll be back.

Stopped off on way back home for a coffee, after 26 degrees in Paris we weren't expecting to sit outside in Navan for a coffee, after Storm Ophelia had swept through Ireland, but indeed we did!

Fruit scone and two americanos went down very well, delightful!
