The Bective

Opened in late 2012, The Bective quickly became a popular spot with locals. An interesting place with a buzzing atmosphere, it’s eclectically done up - one wall is covered in red corrugated sheeting, for example, others in black chalkboard paint where they write up the specials, and another in wood panelling.

Making the proud claim that 90% of the food is sourced in County Meath, the wide-ranging menu offers plenty of choice with a firm emphasis on familiar favourites like curries, pizzas, pasta, noodles, sizzlers and steaks. A few items have a Creole or Cajun twist and there are plenty of gluten-free options included.

Attractively presented on rustic wooden boards, the portions are generous and everything is very tasty.

There's a children's menu and this family-friendly place has an outdoor seating area with a play area iat the back. It's a pleasant place to enjoy fine weather and, with the kids  safely occupied, parents will find it relaxing.

There’s also live music in the bar upstairs at weekends.

Friendly, attentive staff, a buzzing atmosphere and plenty of choice make The Bective an attractive option when in Kells.


Seats 90 (Private room available upstairs). Open Wed-Sat, 5-10; Sun 3-9. A la carte; children's menu. abbreviations
