    We went to the Red Bank last night and had a great time! Couldn’t fault the food, the staff or the cocktails! We had goats cheese and wings for starters and fillet steaks with lots of sides for main, it was absolutely delicious!!! We will definitely be back again in the new year!!

    Wonderful holiday meal at The Red Bank! The welcome, service and food were all outstanding. We had a wheelchair user in our party, and the staff were very kind and efficient in accommodating special needs. This was our second visit recently, and both times were excellent. One of the finest restaurants in Carrick-on-Shannon — highly recommended!

    We were initially seated at a table that was vibrating from the kitchen fans downstairs. We were relocated to a still table and had a lovely meal/evening. Thankyou to all the staff and compliments to the chefs! See you in 2023, hopefully.

    We had a lovely meal the food and presentation and variety of local produce was excellent. However we had booked a table for 6 and I phoned on the day to change booking to 5 people When we arrived we were brought to a table with 4 settings and the 5th setting had to be added which was placed on the end of the table inthere was limited space already for seating and dish placement. We enquired if there was another table available as the booking was for 5 and we were told there wasn’t. We have been to the Red Bank twice in the last 2 months and thoroughly enjoyed the meals We are looking forward to the next visit!

    I have been to The Red Bank on numerous occasions both with family and for business, I have always found the staff extremely friendly and professional. The food is always very good and plenty of options, for starters, mains and desserts. If you are looking for a great restaurant in Carrick on Shannon then I would highly recommend The Red Bank, but book well in advance as it is always busy.

    Eating vegan can be a challenge but the menu here was good. The 1st course was a delight and would be ranked in the best we have had in Ireland. The second course didnt quite follow that. My wife ordered the vegan burger which was a disappointment coming on a big white roll with a less than generous salad dressing and the salad itself consisting of a large quantity of uncooked and tough kale. My main was the curry which was medium but tasty but a slight disappointment after a great starter. My wife spent last night quite sick which is difficult to say where that came from and has continued this throughout today. The dessert was good but I couldnt find where the pear was used. This is our first visit to the restaurant so it is a bit unfair to base a lot on this. The serving staff seemed a bit under experienced and although the web site said there was a restriction to the time at the table the time to serve was the majority part of that. I would like to have a second visit before making a firm recommendation to friends.

    Enjoyed the meal for the most part. All starters were great, two of the main meals were great but one main meal the chicken burger was a disaster , pieces of chicken with a wet salad on it made it very soggy & The salt and chilli fries were destroyed in salt and inedible. Dessert was lovely and the service was great

    We were disappointed when our table of 6 were put out in the bar as there is no atmosphere there. Also it was very cold, while staff put on the 'boost' two of us had to wear our coats on our shoulders. My flatbread was a bit stodgy and the duck bon bons accompanying my beautifully cooked duck, were very dry. I've been to the red bank before and loved it and we will be back, this experience was just a little dull

    Visited the Red Bank Restaurant in October with another couple and we are all in agreement that we will be back. From start to finish the presentation, flavour and portion size was outstanding The surprise amuse bouche was a lovely touch, great selection of wine and cocktails to choose from and a great atmosphere in the place. The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and Emma made sure our drinks were never empty 😂 had a great night well done to Michelle and Jason, Carrick is lucky to have this gem

    Have to say was a little disappointed in the mains, the starters were excellent and desserts very good, but the mains let it down a little, service was great and very welcoming, we have been there before and had excellent meals so we will just put this one down to a one off perhaps just a little too busy and long weekend etc...

    We celebrated our Son's birthday here last night. Everything was perfect. The food is delicious and attention to detail excellent. The staff were excellent, attentive and so pleasant. A really nice touch was the happy birthday cake for my son. We would highly recommend the Red Bank. I'm looking forward to returning already.
