The Peppermill Restaurant
Robert and Mairead's Peppermill Restaurant is a textbook modern Irish restaurant. Everything they do, and the way in which they do it, is utterly focussed on the customer, so it's the ideal destination if you are having a birthday party and want to start the evening with a cocktail and take it from there, and it's also ideal if you just want a glass of wine and the chance to share some tapas or a cheese or fish board at the bar with a friend.
The rooms are comfortable, smart and welcoming, the service is expert and affable, the cooking is assured and modern, and when you put these elements together as precisely as they are in The Peppermill, then you can understand why the Gill's restaurant has been a mainstay of Nenagh since 2000.
The assurance of the cooking starts with smart sourcing – Union Hall fish and shellfish, local specialities such as Inch House black pudding – and then the kitchen gets imaginative and creative: gratin of hake with smoked salmon and saffron orzo; tian of crab with avocado and basil; organic salmon with spinach in filo pastry; Hereford sirloin with horseradish cream. The kitchen also offers expert Asian influenced dishes – lamb rendang; lamb cutlet with coconut rice cake; teriyaki sirloin with nasi goreng and Asian broth; Panang monkfish curry.
The Peppermill pushes all the right buttons in the most capable and professional manner, and one only wishes that every town in Ireland could be so lucky to have a restaurant like this at the creative heart of its food culture. Lucky Nenagh!
