NOT A WORLD OF FLAVOUR FOR VEGETARIANS.
MENU FAILS if you like satisfying crispy creamy cheesy dishes like Macaroni Cheese or Salmon Encroute, Veg Lasagnes or Leek & Goats Cheese Encroutes etc. I have tried their Encroute Pies but the pastry was very thin and I would consider them to be just more like unsatisfying parcels rather than crunchy crispy puff pastry. Rice accompanying curry was not usual rice and was less enjoyable than the normal according to another.
Advice to Management - €7 Desserts could be €4.50 & would sell better, although Pavlova beautiful the other desserts are generally dry, small & lacking flavour.
Surroundings comfortable & not too noisy. Can be nice or disappointing as standards vary but are usually good. Prices are Inflated on many items so easy to overspend.
Re-visit Menu as lots of people love fish but are not seafood eaters, and mains do not cater Vegetarians too well. Pasta in mushroom sauce, or alternatively with sundried tomato or whatever is dull dull dull. The Veg Pie was NOT as good as either shop bought, nor my own Cauliflower Cheese or Linda McCartney Leek Encroutes or similar. There are lots of Fish-Eating Vegetarians as well as people who eat meat but love cheesy carbohydrate dishes too.
The menu is large but there are overlaps of similar dishes. The mains are much better than the desserts or starters enjoyment-wise but also value & portion-wise generally. The staff are mostly friendly but it can get busy & people may disappear or not look at customers so unless they come near enough it can be irritating. They usually ask once but not always if it's all good etc. I have found that they can forget to bring the sauce accompanying the mains if busy or if sauce not ready yet they may arrive with the dinner! You can end up being forgotten, and can be mean with sauce, even if you ask for more. The banoffee and pavlova desserts are best, the others are not nice and are very very very (really very!) mean portions costing €7 with cream sparingly applied as if served up by the leader of a dieter's group. Serviettes are the same problem with one being given often for 2 - 3 courses or if you are lucky maybe another one but with some of the food already on it upon arrival. The serviettes are small and thin so one per course would make things easier.
Paninis could be offered with Roasted Veg Onion, Seasoning & Goat's Cheese. I have been advised someone likes a Meat with Red Onion Marmalade & Cheese Panini.

We booked the new private dining area for an occasion and everybody was delighted with the atmosphere, food quality and service. It was very comfortable and had a lovely cool vibe. We had a great night and will definitely be back.

We went there for lunch around 1.00 pm ordered 3 scampi and chips very disappointed in the scampi ,it appeared to have been cooked twice as it was dripping in grease and hard shell on it , it was not a good experience and we have no intention of paying a second visit . Could not possibly recommend.nRegards Liam

We were a large party that included kids. We all had a very enjoyable meal and the kids were looked after.
The only negative was the selecting of starters was poor. (but we were had an early sitting at 2pm)
Killarney Road, Mallow, Cork
If you are traveling in the Mallow, Co Cork, area and would like to feel how a rich country gentleman of some hundred years ago used to live, you can't do better than to drop into Longueville House for a light lunch. You will sit in a gracious Georgian drawing room, with plasterwork, portraits, decorations, and a marvelous real live open log fire, and will be able to choose from a reasonably priced and attractive menu in the elegant surroundings. We were served by a charming French waiter, who attended us with that flair and panache that only the French seem capable of. There was one problem, but we are prepared to believe that it was only a hiccup. A beautiful looking smoked salmon salad, tender, succulent, and home-smoked, was spoiled by being fiercely salty. We ate it, but it took a bit of an effort. Our Frenchman made up for it with a genuine apology and the offer of a free desert (which we took, and it was delicious). We shall certainly revisit Longueville House should we ever find ourselves in the area again.

Had two drinks here with my daughter and decided to order the "traditional Irish cheese board" . Costing €12 this offering was so disappointing- such tiny, mean portions of the cheeses was an insult, really! I was going to complain but staff seemed under tremendous pressure and I guess it is the fault of the kitchen. Warning: do not order this !
