Kildare Post Restaurant Review - The Oak Bar at the Westgrove Hotel, Clane
The Oak Bar at the Westgrove Hotel: Exquisite dining with a dash of 4-Star class
The Oak Bar at the 4-star Westgrove Hotel in Clane is fast becoming a very popular dining option for couples and families who want a convenient stop-off with a central location, convenient parking and a very comfortable atmosphere.
The Oak Bar specialises in local and international Beers, divine cocktails and great bar food and live music on Saturday nights to add to the already buzzing atmosphere.
On the evening we visited, The Oak Bar was bustling with guests and we were shown to a quiet and spacious corner in an alcove.
The stylish decor was very relaxing and we relaxed into the easy ambience as we perused the extensive Menu.
An early positive sign that impressed us was that non-alcoholic wine was available at the bar - perfect for a designated driver who wants to enjoy a meal with a glass of wine but doesn't want the alcohol!
The efficient and very friendly staff looked after us very well throughout our experience.
For Starters, I chose the Duck Spring Roll with was served with a Hoi Sin Sipping Sauce.
My companion opted for the Antipasto Board of freshly-cut Italian Cured Meats, Char-grilled Vegetables, a Selection of Italian cheeses, Salty Capers, Olives, Artichoke Hearts and a Selection of Breads.
For Dessert, we decided to share the scrumptious Bread and Butter Pudding with a side accompaniment of ice cream.
Delicious, homely and yet exotic at the same time! For a great night out and something a little more contemporary, The Oak Bar is a truly elegant space but with both warmth and character.
The quality of the cuisine is unrivaled and each meticulously prepared dish is bursting with colour and flavour.
The presentation of the food was also very impressive.
We will certainly be back very soon to treat ourselves - and we'll be telling all our friends!
