Looking for a good meal in Ennis? Why not try the recently opened Henry's on Market Street? Here you get a royal Déise welcome from Dermot Fetton and some excellent dishes based on superb Banner produce. Nothing overly fancy here mind you, though cooking and presentation is excellent. Dermot, for so long the main man at the Cloister, gives his customers what they want, not what the chef thinks they should have.
Dermot and the team have moved to this new venue in recent months and it was abuzz on the April night that we visited and the man himself is very happy with the new venue (including its smaller more manageable size). I had forgotten my reading glasses and my host had a few pairs to try (including his own!). Where would you get that kind of service? By the way, they also do lunch here.
10oz Hereford Ribeye is always popular. There's also a braised daube of beef with a wine jus. A Lamb Shank with an unusual rosemary jus. The Chicken Breast Burger always goes down well. There's Fish 'n Chips of course, another popular choice; haddock is the usual fish. There’s the Roasted Salmon Fillet with Ratatouille and another fish offering is Hake with cauliflower and broccoli.
