Lovely food in a great location and staff were very attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend
We love Cookes, but unfortunately Christmas eve food was not good, all 3 burgers were burnt and batter in fish inedible. Hopefully will improve again
Lovely for a family meal. Staff were really friendly and helpful.
Absolutely lovely experience both nights! Amazing staff and food. Best gastro pub in kildare
Excellent food & service would certainly recommend
Delicious food and excellent service...would recommend!
Fantastic food, fantastic service and great atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Meal with friends Saturday night. Delicious food & great atmosphere.
Lovely food in a nice cosy area. Staff lovely and food comes quite quick which is great when you have kids with you. Felt very safe here with regards to how they are set up for Covid compliance
Really enjoyed our evening- we booked a table for 4 ladies - a lovely catch up for us and we all felt comfortable and safe . Well done on your social distancing and sanitisation procedures in place . At all times we felt safe .
We had a lovely night
One negative point not related to Cookes -but some customers did move around going to toilets without masks and arrived in to Cookes not wearing their masks - maybe prompt/remind customer to wear their masks .
Everything was perfect food ambiance felt very comfortable bar staff were great cresit to them all working in these strange times..would recommend to anyone..
Gorgeous food, very helpful staff. Really nice venue.
Great attentive staff and plenty of them. However the issue lied in the fact that our fish and chip dinner had batter that was not fully cooked through. When the waitress was notified she agree the batter was unset on the inside layer leaving a thick gluey paste (not very pleasant to eat), she brought one of the dishes to the kitchen. When she returned with the same plate of food and an embarrassed look, stating that the uncooked part of the batter was turmeric according to the chef !! Not sure what turmeric has to do with uncooked batter?? She apologies that this was as much as she could do for us on this occasion. So basically we paid €34 for two bowls of chips and unpleasant/inedible fish batter. I understand restaurants and bars serving food have had a very hard year with covid but how is it fair to expect loyal customers to pay for unpleasant food. We won’t EVER be back which is sad as this is our local but it’s obvious they don’t care about that
Excellent food and service as always. Looking forward to going back again.
Our food wasn’t great, my husbands duck had to flavouring and nor did most of his meal either. My chicken burger had barely any coating on it. The chips were frozen despite them usually being home made, no change in price either!! Service was appalling, no attention given.
We booked the gastro lounge and got put in the fox and hare, not what we had booked.
We’re regulars at Cooke’s and I was so disappointed, won’t be returning.
Excellent , delicious meal in Fox & Hare
First time here, very personal service, social distancing, hygiene standards and masks all observed without feeling uninviting and rushed. Food was delicious with the chicken wings disappeared fast. I tried the homemade fudge which was silky smooth and creamy sweet. Plenty of spacious parking around the back.
Delicious food! Great atmosphere. Service was quick but drinks were forgotten about at times.
Excellent quality food and service. It felt very safe with all the measures in place. Well done we will be back!
Really enjoyed our meal here, for atmosphere / would probably choose the bar / lounge area to eat in over the fox and hare restaurant.
Great food, super atmosphere and staff very friendly
Dined early evening, cordial welcoming atmosphere. Staff very attentive. Food was excellent, all 5 of party very happy with choices. Good value when it came to paying bill.
Will definitely return sooner rather than later.
Cooke’s ambience was lovely overall with a welcoming fire. However, personally, I found the Christmas music in the background too loud.
I really enjoyed my meal. I had the curry. However, I don’t think there are any vegetables served with meals and everything is served with chips apart from the curry.
The kids menu also lacked a healthy option, again no vegetables and everything served with chips. The price for the kids menu was good value and my girls loved the dessert.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, staff were very good and waiter who looked after us was very pleasant, but if crack and very professional all at the same time. Looking forward to going back tgere
We had a lovely meal in very pleasant surrounds. The place was spotless clean and service cheerful and prompt. Food was nicely cooked and very tasty, wine was very good. I had a french coffee which was beautifully made to end off a perfect evening.
Food was fantastic and staff are super nice. The atmosphere was fantastic given the current restrictions.
Very good service which was provided by pleasant staff
Always get 5 star food and service in Cookes, highly recommend.
Really nice tasty meal. Great to be able to dine out & to have restaurants open again.
Good food great friendly staff would recommend Cookes to family and friends as a really nice place to go for a meal and drinks
Prompt service. Food tasty and piping hot. 3 clean plates
Very friendly staff, great service and lovely food. We always enjoy ourselves.
Wrong soup was brought to us. Staff did not even know which soup it was. Dont eat pork and soup had bacon in it. Ordered the cauliflower soup but never got it. Would prefer to receive drinks in sealed bottles and cans not already in glass.
We love Cookes, been there loads before lockdown and couldn't wait to come back once it reopened. Very warm friendly service and food is always delicious.
Very nice food with good choice on the menu. great service and lovely staff
