Ramblin’ House looks forward to brighter times ahead!
Ramblin’ House, formerly Bannon’s pub at 60-62 Market Street, aims to provide
a top-quality Pub and Restaurant service ideally situated at the heart of
Cootehill’s town centre.
The new Ramblin’ House Bistro will see the previous Monday-to-Friday
lunchtime food offering extended to an all-day, seven-day restaurant providing a
full range of chef-led culinary delights complemented by a wide range of
beverages to wash it all down!
Extensive refurbishments have been carried out to the Bar and Lounge areas
with a view to making the popular establishment a very welcoming venue for
patrons old and new — and young and old! — in what we all hope will be a
bright new era free from Covid concerns!
Over the coming period we intend to transform the former street-front Off-
Licence outlet into an extended section of the restaurant, connected to the
existing spacious lounge to the rear. The lounge will in itself provide an ideal
setting for events and celebrations of every kind, perhaps tinged now and then
with an Irish folk and trad flavour.
On that note, an attractive new outdoor beer-garden area is also being made
ready in eager anticipation of sunnier days and better times to come.
The new proprietor is well-known former locally-based journalist Mickey
McDonnell, who with his partner Nuala is looking forward to getting this exciting
new venture up and running at full speed as the pandemic passes — and we’re
confident that pass it surely will.
In the meantime all the required and recommended safety measures will be in
place as soon as pubs and the wider hospitality sector are given the green light to
get back into business.
We intend to have a web and social media presence posted up in the very near
future as well, making it all the easier to arrange for bookings, events and so on.
We wish the very best to former pub-owners Gene and Pat Bannon and family,
and we also give thanks to everyone who’s worked on the renovations. Special
thanks go to the great friends and family people who have weighed in, well above
the call of duty, to help us over the past few trying months. (“Yez know who yez
Most of all, we look forward with bated breath to opening the doors of Ramblin’
House to one and all as soon as that opportunity beckons.
But for now, we say Happy Christmas to everyone in advance — and given what
2020 brought with it, let’s hope for a truly Happy New Year as well!
