Our Latest Great Place To Eat - The Red Bank Restaurant

Wednesday 14 February 2024

Ideally located at the heart of the popular picturesque town, on the banks of the River Shannon, which attracts many visitors, they offer fab seasonal menus taking full advantage of the wealth of great local produce in region. The result is an assortment of delicious dishes catering for all tastes and dietary requirements. Set in a beautiful listed building, previously a bank, the space is modern and spacious, and has two private dining rooms available for functions and events.

They do an excellent Table d’Hote menu here, but, from the A La Carte, Appetisers include the likes of pan-seared scallops and tempura prawns with a pea puree, pickled mushrooms, roe dust, citrus syrup and crispy pancetta; Leitrim Hill Goats Cheese, deep-fried and served with candied nuts, basil pesto and a tomato & red pepper chutney; or perhaps some sticky black bean and tofu skewers with rice noodles. They also do a hearty West Coast chowder with brown bread, not to mention their finger lickin’ Gannon’s buffalo chicken wings with smoked bacon bits, blue cheese aioli and celery slaw.

Mains are divided by meat, or lack there of, with seafood coming under the heading of Joe Garvin’s Atlantic Catch, and offering such delights as their Jack the Lad pale ale battered haddock served with crispy caper and herb butter, pea puree, chunky tartare and a side of skinny fries. Their signature seafood linguine is excellent as well, brimming with Clew Bay mussels and king prawns.
