A few weeks of unplanned time off this summer has given us the opportunity to look at our restaurant menu and decide how to improve our offering. While we were in lockdown, our chefs have been working hard, trying new recipes, improving our tried and trusted favourites, and adding some delicious new additions to our popular menu. Many things have changed these past few months but the care, love and dedication of our kitchen and front of house team in Statham’s has not. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon!
Our New and Improved Lunch MenuWe believe lunch should be filling, tasty and nutritious and should help keep you going until the main event, your dinner. That’s why we have put together a brand-new menu, with a mixture of tried and trusted dishes and new items that are a huge improvement to a boring ham sandwich! We have gourmet sandwiches – try Statham’s signature Glin Valley Farm Roast Chicken Sandwich or Grilled Cubano – healthy options – like our ‘naked’ pesto, turkey & mozzarella burger – or if you’re looking for a real treat, our buttermilk chicken tenders served with BBQ sauce, Asian slaw & chunky chips. We also have vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and a good ol’ fashioned Fish and Chips with a twist if that’s what you fancy. No meal is complete without something sweet to top it off, so we have a selection of homemade bite-sized desserts to choose from.
Enjoy Dinner from our updated menuDinner has always been the main event in Statham’s. We put our heart and soul into each dish that leaves our kitchen, but we love when guests spend an evening savouring the delights of dinner and soaking up the signature Statham’s atmosphere.
Start dinner with a small dish of nibbles like our smokehouse olives or our Blanco Nino tortilla chips. Move on to our small plates to start, and with options like buffalo halloumi fritters and crispy potato tacos, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The piece de resistance is our selection of main courses ranging from local slow-cooked lamb to delicious striploin steak from the Ging family at Ballykeefe Farm, all served with a signature Statham’s twist. Our sides are perfectly complementary, and we also offer a selection of small dessert options to satisfy any sweet tooth. You can choose to have a small treat or combine them to make one large dessert. Dinner at Statham’s is an experience in itself.
Brunch is BackWeekend brunch at Statham’s has always been popular! It’s back on the menu every Saturday & Sunday with delicious new dishes, brunch cocktails and mocktails. Enjoy it in our courtyard on a bright morning or afternoon
Our FoodAt Statham’s, we are passionate about food; you won’t find an item on our menu that hasn’t been tried, tested, and perfected by our team of chefs. Great food comes from great suppliers and we are always on the look out for local Kilkenny products to include in our menu. Each item on your plate has been researched and we have been assured of its quality by a local Kilkenny producer where possible and supplemented by a wider Irish supplier if not. Before it leaves the kitchen, each dish must get a seal of approval from our perfectionist chef, meaning it is of excellent quality and presented well so when it reaches your table you love it as much as we do.
Keeping you safe while you dineMany aspects of dining have changed in the past few months but one thing that will never suffer is the excellent food, quality, and service with a smile that you are guaranteed when you dine in Statham’s. We have adhered to all government advice and implemented new rules and guidelines that our staff and customers should follow to keep each other safe. Our new kitchen is ideal for social distancing between staff and much easier to deep clean regularly. Our staff wear PPE both inside and outside of the kitchen to protect our guests and each other. We also have a new app integrated with our reservations and billing systems, so you have as little as possible contact with staff as you wish. For now, our buffet breakfast is unfortunately a thing of the past but not to worry, we’ve created a take-away box with the best of breakfast for you to enjoy in the hotel or perhaps as a picnic in nearby Castle Park.
If you’d like to make a booking in Statham’s, contact our friendly staff by phone, email or click here to book your table online. Our staff are knowledgeable and always happy to recommend a dish to suit your dietary requirements or personal taste. We hope you love our new menus as much as we do!
