Evan Doyle has always been 25 years ahead of everyone else in the hotel and restaurant game in Ireland. What amazes us is that no one else in the country has sought to achieve the Organic status which the Macreddin Hotel enjoys, and that so few chefs in hotels have followed the Strawberry Tree restaurant in giving prominence to wild and foraged foods on their menus. In The Brook Lodge they smoke their own beef, collect ceps from Macreddin wood, cure their own meats, age their own liquors and vinegars, tend their own bees, all of which means you encounter flavours, textures and tastes whilst enjoying dinner here that you simply won’t find anywhere else in Ireland. The Strawberry Tree offers the real walk on the wild side of Irish food and cooking, and there is nowhere else like it. A crack team under Mr Doyle look after everyone royally.
