Review on The Hungry Monk

Owner Pat Keown has been part of the family wine business for 25 years and he has made the Hungry Monk a serious destination for aficionados and new converts alike. His wine list is a connoisseur's selection running to more than 600 bins, with just about every oenophilic country and region represented, lots of half bottles, plus organic names and a tantalising choice of dessert tipples.

On the food front, the kitchen makes admirable use of seasonal produce for a comforting menu that highlights local game and Castletownbere seafood. Dishes tend to depend on the catch or the shoot, but everything is treated with due respect. Other options might include lamb's kidneys in Madeira sauce with truffle mash, roast fillet of pork with Savoy cabbage, black pudding boudin, apple and cider puree, or breast of Cootehill Farm chicken stuffed with baby spinach.

The wine bar below stairs is open from 5.00pm seven days a week: expect casual, bistro-style food and a trimmed-down selection from the full wine list.
