At The Autumn Rooms we strive to keep it fresh, local, in season and super tasty. Food, coffee & tea is our thing with breakfast and lunch served all day. We are a relaxed, casual fine dining restaurant in the evening where you can expect to hear soft Jazz in the background and watch Darby Street walk past.
