For visitors and locals alike, The Japanese Gardens Restaurant is a must during your tour of the stud, and indeed on any occasion. Ballymaloe-trained Natalie Collins and her manager, take pride in offering simple, wholesome food with the emphasis on freshness and flavour.
Local ingredients are used wherever possible, providing a sound foundation for dishes with distinctive homemade style such as the Beef Hot Pot served with seasoned baby potatoes or Roast Courgette and Goats Cheese Tart. For plainer palates, the huge platter of Irish Smoked Salmon and freshly-baked brown bread is complimented with a selection of her finest salads. Quiche of the day could be ham, leek & mushroom.

Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.
Sandwiches, salads and wraps are all made to order and as baking is a huge strength, expect to be greeted by a mouthwatering array of freshly baked breads, scones, desserts and cakes. Take them away or enjoy them at your leisure with a variety of our finest coffees or even afternoon tea.
