    Sunday lunch menu is not great - it's brunch until 4pm?? Disappointed with menu at 2.30pm - thought l would get lunch, but instead menu was more suitable for a late breakfast/early lunch. No real option for starter and main course - will be back, but not until after 4pm

    Our food was delicious. I had prawn pil pil and mignon and my husband had wings and rib eye. We also had two desserts. The restaurant is beautiful. My only fault was that a lot of items were not available. The ribs, mussels, all fish, chunky chips and dauphinois potatoes were all unavailable.

    Lovely place, a bit more toast with the full Irish would be lovely as it is very pricey. Also maybe a small full Irish option would be great.

    Service was very poor and we were waiting for almost two hours for our main course. Guests wanted to leave before we were served. It was very embarrassing for me the host of the group as some of the invited guests were from the USA.

    Service was excellent, asked for medium-rare steak but was served medium-well done so was disappointed. The garlic potatoes were very dry, felt the presentation could have been better, overall the food was good. Drinks were amazing .

    Apart from the starters the food was not good. The pizza came out and looked like it was a frozen pizza the cheese wasn't even cooked on it. The fish and chips were okay but weren't completely hot. Not been offered water when you sit down and the pints were like drinking watered-down beer. Not great value for the money you would spend there for a night out

    We had a really nice Sunday Brunch. I was told that Lunch is only served M-F so that limited the selection just a little. Really enjoyed the food however & we had great service from start to finish. Would highly recommend The Clermont. Setting is really lovely & a walk along the seaside after was pleasant.

    Food very bad. All four of us got fish. Couldn’t cut the batter that was sitting on top of chips. Asked for plates to put fish on to try and cut it, but again couldn’t cut it. Said it to member of staff at check out & asked her to tell manager & chef. Rang looking to speak with manager next day & sounded like she hadn’t been informed. She said she’d mention it at meeting later that evening & ring me back. Never heard back from her & that’s a couple of weeks now. Will not be going back.

    We were seated in the pergola which I think customers should be informed about when booking. The ambience in the pergola was lacking The food overall was disappointing My prawn starter wasn't hot enough and was poor value for money. My main course was very poor compressed chicken fillet and stodgy pasta. The wine was nice The service however was very good. A polite attentive waiter took our order and served us efficiently.

    Great welcome from Fergal, bar person. Food was lovely. Had the burger and dessert Was asked at end if meal was OK by waitress which it was. But table was not checked during meal. Also noticed table next to me had a starter of wings they had to ask for finger wipes / bowls. And when the got their steaks ... no forks.

    Beautiful restaurant and lovely staff, but we were disappointed by the vegan menu. The regular menu had been recently changed and restyled, but we were given the old vegan menu as they had chosen not to update it. The vegan options are a little uninspired (mostly "things on bread") and prices are unrealistically steep. One standout dish, however, was the mushrooms on toast - easily the tastiest thing on there. They didn't have the one vegan dessert available when we were there (Easter Sunday late lunchtime) but did offer us sorbet and fruit which we declined. The staff kindly allowed us to sit in what used to be the bar area to have a drink afterwards which we really appreciated. Overall, we would definitely return if they put a tiny bit more thought into their vegan offerings - at a time when everyone should be eating less meat and dairy, restaurants have a responsibility to make it simpler and more attractive for patrons to choose plant-based options.

    We love the Clermont but the pergola was not open which is a pity since the ambience is much nicer out there. Please open it up!
