Ann and Cormac celebrate 1st Anniversary at The Yew Tree

The Yew Tree Restaurant in Lecarrow has been in existence for ten years but has recently undergone an overhaul after being taken over by two locals, the husband and wife team of Ann and Cormac Sheehy, who have revived the restaurant since its closure in 2015 and have turned it into one of the top restaurants in the Midlands.  

  This week, The Yew Tree Restaurant under their management, is celebrating its 1st Anniversary.

  Having recently won the ‘Best Newcomer’ Award at the Regional Restaurant Association of Ireland awards, the restaurant has continued to grow and the team has expanded. Featured in Lucinda O’Sullivan’s Guide, the Georgina Campbell Guide, Waterways Ireland Guide and Shannon Bridge Guide, the restaurant is receiving great reviews both locally and nationally.

  The Yew Tree philosophy is to produce a mix of classic Irish dishes married with some well-known International dishes. All meats are Irish, and, where possible, come from animals reared and slaughtered within 20 miles of the restaurant. The vast majority of vegetables come from local suppliers who are known and trusted to take as much care growing their produce as the kitchen staff does working with it.

  The Yew Tree would like to thank all customers near and far for their support. Ann and Cormac also wish to thank both of their families for their never-ending support and encouragement and of course the hard-working staff at The Yew Tree. Ann’s sister, Josie Drury, is General Manager of the restaurant while another sister, Katie Drury, is the Café Manager.

  The management say: “It has been an amazing year of getting to know our customers and suppliers while making new friends. Roll on another year!”
