Delicious Top Class Lunch!! Beautiful lunch today!! Heard great reports of Orchard pub. Absolute divine!! We ordered the Lamb lunch!! Loads of lamb on stuffing. Gravy so tasty. Fabulous vedge coated in garlic butter I think! Soo tasty. Fabulous mash and chunky chips!! So good like 5 star fine dining!! So easy for parking! Beautiful bar. Smashing place. A real gem for Kilkenny city! Lovely Management and Staff!! Looking forward to our next visit!! Hats off to The Orchard Pub!!
Highly recommend ! What a glorious setting. Around the back is a lovely outdoor area, tables and pods for small groups. Plants and lighting make it really magical. Pods have small heaters & knee blankets. Inside the main building, there is an atmospheric snug, which apparently can be booked for private groups - would probably seat ? max 10 - 15 ? Friend and I were there on a Monday night - so really quiet - packed on the weekend apparently (strongly suggest booking for weekend). We enjoyed dinner and drinks in a lovely setting. Lots of parking - too busy chatting to discover if they had wifi ! I'll be back !!!

5 stars all around Had a fantastic dinner tonight. All our choices were well presented, were plentiful and most importantly were delicious. We were greeted by friendly staff who ensured we were well attended to the whole evening. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for great food at affordable prices.
Delicious We have eaten here on a number of occasions and no matter whether it was lunch or dinner the food was always excellent. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The outdoor area is beautifully decorated and relaxing. I would definitely recommend it.
