“Ever Tried. Ever Failed. No Matter. Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better.” – Samuel Beckett

Michelin Guide:

“A former pub-cum-grocer’s named after its first owner. The original bar counter and shelves remain and the room has a homely feel. Flavoursome dishes are eye-catchingly presented and make good use of local ingredients, some of which they grow in the garden – the purple sprouting broccoli is wonderful.” – Michelin Guide Inspectors

The MICHELIN Bib Gourmand: Good quality at a good value – ‘Bibs’ are awarded for simple and skilful cooking

McKenna’s Guides:

“The food Richard Milnes is serving in Dillon’s is so seamlessly wrought, so supremely elegant, that he makes everyone else look like they’re trying too hard. Part of his brilliance is the way in which simple things are shown ultimate respect – brussel sprouts, for example, served in a warm salad with potatoes and hazelunts and Milnes’ own riff on a Caesar dressing.” John McKenna

Georgina Campbell’s Ireland:

“Well known West Cork chef Richard Milnes’s menus may be short but they are packed with quality, reflecting the superb local produce available – and he is a terrific chef. While thinking very local in terms of main ingredients, influences that come from far and wide ensure plenty of variety.” – Georgina Campbell

Tripadvisor Reviews:

“Dillons’ was such a delight in the small town that it sits. If you happen to be ANYWHERE in the vicinity, you must eat here! It’s so romantic and quaint and the food is out of this world. My Ribeye cooked to perfection included a horseradish butter with wild mushrooms, I also had seared scallops in a chorizo sauce, and desert was a homemade made-to-order plum pudding with custard. Out of this world.”– Amy L
