Went in for a dinner and were disappointed with the lack of choice first. All four of us were not too impressed with the mains, it was eatable but not of it fantastic. Still had a great night - service and atmosphere were a compensation...More

Wife and I ate from the early evening menu, 3 courses for €25. Very good value, and all courses were tasty and presented well. Friendly service too. Would recommend without hesitation.

Although the atmosphere was great in The Green Hen, the food just wasn't that great. All the way from the starter to the dessert...it was all just meh. Ps. It was great that they had gluten free alternatives and the service was brilliant.
