“Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.”
I know I go on and on about lunches in Ryans Bar Navan. But it simply is the best lunch in town. Simple honest food that tastes great. The added bonus is the service is fast and efficient. The coffee is great too. Of course a little sing song from Mick Ryan when he passes your table is generally welcome.
Dining by myself or with clients, friends or family Ryans is where I go.
It’s great to have The Central bar in Navan. It caters for everyone. Recently we took the staff there for lunch. There was something for everyone. We all had a really present afternoon.
A massive thanks to everyone for looking after us.
I highly recommend the garlic bread. Over the last few months I have slowly been introducing lactose back into my diet. The Centrals garlic bread is loaded with garlic butter. Yummy.

Gin Mare. On the nose it smells herbaceous with thyme. On the palate basil rosemary thyme and coriander. Best served with a Thyme.

Dingle Gin. Locally grown botanicals giving that “Taste of Kerry” feel. Simply served with a wedge of lime.

Beefeater Gin. It’s easy to overlook Beefeater gin, as it’s widely popular. But it’s a great gin and those that haven’t tried it yet is missing out. On the nose it’s spicy and fruity, and on the palate it’s dry with herbal and citrus notes

Monkey 47. The number 47 comes from the 47 botanicals used and the 47% ABV. I always get different tasting notes from this gin. Berry fruits, citrus floral and herbal. Served best with a wedge of lime.

Breil Pur Gin is next. It’s an organic Swiss Gin. Rose and chocolate mint are the back bone of this gin. I tried this is House in Limerick. It’s one of my favorites.

Opihr Gin. This gin was designed with an exotic ancient spice route in mind. This gin has a heady spice mix with cardamom rising about the rest. Despite the spicy explosion there is a sweetness from the orange. Iv had it served different ways. Most common is with a slice of grapefruit. However I like it with a sliced red chili and some cardamom pods.
