Enchiladas, salad and pavlova

The Elm Tree
Gardners need to be kept well fed. Even when they are visiting gardens rather than working.

We had a superb lunch today at Elm Tree in Glounthuane in Cork. We found this excellent eatery by accident last year when doing a garden tour. With some time to kill one day the group descended on thee establishment looking fir coffee and scones. They copes admirably. Hanna and I had been back last summer and really liked the food, so they were put on our itinerary for today’s lunch venue.

Not only was the food excellent, a great value carvery that equals or betters most restaurants, the staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The place is also nicely decorated and with a nice atmosphere.

Looks of disbelief on the first members of our tour party to be served their desserts were comical. I had the pavlova, which was crunchy outside and soft and sticky inside, topped with fresh cream and FRESH fruit. Delicious!!!
