Richmond House

Georgina Campbell's Feile Bia Award 2006 - Richmond House, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford The restaurant is the heart of Richmond House, the Deevy family’s fine 18th century country house and restaurant just outside Cappoquin. Menus reassuringly state a commitment to the File Bia programme: Paul is an ardent supporter of local produce and sources everything with tremendous care - Quality Assured meats (beef, lamb, bacon and sausages) come from his trusted local butcher, fresh seafood is from Dunmore East and Dungarvan, organic produce is grown nearby and, where possible, home grown herbs, fruit and vegetables are used too. There is a sureness of touch in Paul’s kitchen, seen in stimulating menus that offer a balance between traditional country house cooking and more adventurous dishes inspired by international trends; dinner menus are changed daily, and specialities include a dish it would be hard to resist at Richmond House - roast rack of delicious West Waterford lamb, beautifully presented on braised puy lentils and buttered green beans, with home-made mint jelly and rosemary & garlic jus; vegetables, served separately, are invariably imaginative...and difficult choices have to be made between classic desserts and, of course, Irish farmhouse cheeses - with home-made biscuits... A visit here is always a treat.
