What’s Your Fave Greystones Chomping Ground?

Newcastle & Woodstock Road Works
March 8, 2021
This Month Was Made For Walking
March 4, 2021

t’s been quite some time now since Greystones was first dubbed a foodie town, and it’s not difficult to see why.

From The Happy Pear to The Hungry Monk, from Spendlove’s to Sonny’s, from Chakra to Camile and from Las Tapas to Le Crépérie, we’re incredibly spoilt for award-winning eateries in this town.

And Daata have the gongs to prove it. As does The Bear Paw. And The Pigeon House. And Camile. And The Hungry Monk. And, hey, Caffé Delle Stelle.

The list goes on – and on – and as our fine restaurants and all those huggable little cafés hold their breath for the lockdown to lift and their doors to open once again, we thought now is the time to show all of Greystones eateries some love.

And community support.

We already celebrate our many takeaways – who have been generally thriving in these deliver-us-from-cooking days – and we reckon it’s high time the likes of Julian, Sinan and all the others facing empty tables each day should have their moment in the sun too.

To keep them smiling until it’s a struggle once again to find an empty table.

Running throughout March, vote for your favourite restaurant or café below, and let them know just why you’d rather eat out with them than getting yet more curry sauce on your pyjamas

Big love to Wood Group Homes, who are sponsoring the competition, and thus helping keep the Guide show on the road, baby.

We’ll have a prize of a dinner-for-two in the winning eaterie too – which will no doubt taste all the more delicious as we’re all let out to eat, drink and be merry again.

    Voting for best restaurant in Greystones: Daata.
    Why? Because they listen to their customers. Change the menu /dishes as requested/asked by the customer. And most important: are always polite and if any queries call you back to help out.
    Have 110/120% my vote.

  10. Colin Acton says:

    Re Horse & Hound.
    I totally sympathise with the Hunters Brook residents. Three storey + car park = 4 storeys and and big over shadowing / overlooking issue. But biggest question is how on earth will construction vehicles get in to dig out for the car park and build it? The existing access is too narrow as is Hunters Brook.
    I’d like to see an expanded vibrant hotel in the village but this is another case of over development and the construction challenges have not been thought through at all.
