Stopped for lunch. Excellent food & excellent service. Extensive menu and wine list. Very family orientated, with all food tests catered for. Extensive desert menu. Well worth a visit

My wife and I had lunch there yesterday. We both ordered the steak sandwiches which were delicious as both were cooked to perfection. The girl who served us was helpful and had a jolly personality. Will be back for sure. Yummy yummy

Had lunch here recently and it was outstanding. Prices reasonable and very helpful and pleasant staff. The Chowder was the best I have ever had and all other dishes which my companion and I had were excellent. Will certainly call again when passing. Fully recommended.

Thank you for your candid feedback. I am, shocked, quite frankly, to hear that you were treated this way by any of our staff. We pride ourselves on good, friendly service, and - as our feedback suggests - we achieve that, and our customers recognise that. Our waiting staff take their collective job very seriously, but, as in every situation,... More

I have visited the country market many times and always found the experience fantastic. Everything from the main dishes, the deserts to the coffee is always first class. Alice and all of the staff are always friendly, accommodating and pleasant. The staff keep the tables spotlessly clean. I do and will return to the country market every time I am... More

Prompt table service, which is unexpected for a deli style restaurant. Had a roast beef sandwich and veritable soup which was purée style and absolutely delicious. Check it out.

Sir, Regarding your claims to have received coffee in a dirty pot and a breakfast served on a cracked plate, I can assure you that we wouldn't be in business for as long as we have been, or be as busy as we are, were we in the habit of implenting shoddy practices such as the ones you've mentioned. Our... More

Popped in here en route from Kerry to Dublin. Lovely fresh food and great selections. Nice sized portions. I just wanted one salad with a slice of brown bread. Not a bother. The place has a nice quaint feel to it with lots of 'china' displayed and being used to serve food from. Had a nice chat with Alice, the... More
