    We had the loveliest lunch just thought the service was a little slow but that’s probably from the kitchen not the fault of the staff. It’s a gorgeous place

    I had lunch here last Saturday with my parents, who are just short of their 90th birthdays. I had requested a warm table and we couldn’t have asked for better! We were led to the table right beside the fire which was kept stocked up with logs throughout our lunch. It was so cozy. The food was just delicious (I have been several times before and always look forward to super locally produced fresh ingredients which are then used with great flair in the kitchen. The staff were second to none and couldn’t have been nicer to both myself and my parents. Nothing was a problem. It made my day that my parents had such a lovely time and we cleared each and every plate! I can’t wait to come back again very soon. A super place not to be missed.

    A beautiful setting and wonderful staff let down by simple mistakes from the kitchen. All the vegetables and salad on the dishes were highly over salted - to the point of being inedible. The food seems like it was very good but it was hard to escape the over-salted accompaniments on the plate. We did say it to the waiter and he said we weren’t the first to mention it…..Begs the question why the kitchen didn’t rectify the problem? I’d be hesitant to return based on this.

    Wonderful venue but the metal roof amplifies sound. The food here never disappoints. The beef and stout pie is a perfect choice for a cold wet day. Service was disappointingly lacking. . Lots of attention when we arrived then we were ignored. I’m all for being allowed to enjoy the space. However, lack of training/experience showed when there was no attention paid to whether our table needed clearing and/or whether dessert menus were required. That was irritating.

    Food was delicious but it took a while to come and then it was the wrong order. They forgot about the wine we ordered - we had to remind them after 30 minutes. Apart from that the food was delicious and the actual restuarant is lovely.

    The Grainstore is obviously a labour of love as well as a business for the owners of Kilruddery. With delicious food from their own gardens and a great ambience I highly recommend it for a casual get together or a celebration.

    Breakfast in the Grainstore was really enjoyable with enticing alternatives to the traditional Full Irish. There were 4 of us and I had the Roasted Beetroot dish which was really delicious. We had excellent service and the atmosphere was warm and cosy.
