  • I went went to the Rumbullion last week with my mum and it was appalling to say the least. While the setting is marvellous, the food was absolutely horrendous and - worst of all - made one of us sick. We were assured that the orange juice was freshly squeezed when in fact it was not. My mother ordered the open sandwich with mozzarella, basil pesto and sundries tomato. The mozzarella was the rubbery dry type that you use to cook pizza!! I ordered the smoked chicken salad and asked if i could have the mayo on the side. The plate arrived with a bowl of mayo on the side true but the smoked chicken was still drenched in mayo which came straight out of supermarket jar. We will not go back.

  • Sadly, my last 2 experiences at Rumbullion (in February) have both been very poor - and after reading the other reviews listed here, it's clear that mine were not just (two) once-off bad experiences, but that there seems to be a serious service/management problem at this restaurant. Young, friendly and eager trainee staff who obviously need a lot of guidance, left to their own devices, standing around with no idea of what they have to do, and no management in sight. It's a lovely setting, the food is fine/adequate, but both recent experiences were ruined by poor service and in the last instance, by an arrogant and unaccommodating manager (when we could finally get hold of him). Also, several broken chairs on the deck under the trees - saw a group of tourists having to play musical chairs, looking for (plastic patio) chairs to sit on that were not broken. Would love to go back before the end of summer, but won't - until these management and services issues have improved.

  • We are frequent brunch/lunch guests at the Rumbullion as it's usually such a gorgeous venue and very kid-friendly. Unfortunately our lunch on Sunday was once again spoilt (as this is now the 3rd time that we've had an unleasant experience) by the very rude attitude of the manager, and deterioration of the grounds (the grass on the upper lawn has become a sand/mud it). When we asked to please move tables as we were surrounded by mud and the umbrellas were providing no shade, the manager was incredibly rude. He asked my husband if he (ie the manager) should stand with his hand up and shade us! It seems to be the norm though as many of our friends are complaining about similar bad experiences and very poor service.

  • What a shame! What should have been a lovely lunch in a delightful setting for my husband and myself and our friends was spoilt by very poor management. The staff were very sweet but lacked training and confidence in what they were supposed to be doing. However, the main problem was the manager who had obviously never received any hospitality training as he was almost bordering on being disdainful and was not concerned with being welcoming and helpful and, even when things went wrong – no apologies whatsoever. Bad, bad PR!

    A pity as the concept was good and the food was generally good although some dishes were tasteless. We can’t comment on the desserts or the coffee as we never received them!!! Blame for our extremely poor experience apportioned entirely on the management.
