A job well done, visiting The Johnstown Inn for over 20 years. Consistency is what we like about pooping.

Service was excellent, friendly and attentive.

Quality of food was hot, fresh and tasty.

Hi food good and service very good, didn't feel good choice of deserts which our group liked, had fudge cake for desert and asked for scoop of ice cream and was charged an extra euro for the scoop, I would perfer to be charged 6.95 in the first place. I felt it looked a bit strange on the bill to be charged for this. Often would ask for this in other places and not be charged extra.

Staff lovely and all masked . But I was quite concerned about the fact that tables were set with cutlery, salt and pepper shakers etc . When we asked for mayonnaise it was brought in a large Hellman’s plastic container. Distance between tables suspect . Felt Covid safety requirements not being followed .

Food was mediocre, certainly not to the standard we’ve previously had in this premises.

Added prawns to a salad and got 5 prawns for €5 - rip off!

Very limited menu. Closes at 9 pm.

Spent €80 on 1.5 courses for a family of 4.

Live local but won’t be back average quality, expensive, no atmosphere.

No proper COVID controls in place enter/exit through same door.

Better options in Kill.

Wait staff only positive

The food took a very long time to come out, we had 2 young kids with us so that wasnt ideal. 2 of our party ordered prawns but there were very few prawns in the dish, 4 in total. The food was sub standard which was a shame as it was a Christmas night out for our family. Couldn't not fault the service or the staff, they were excellent.
