The service was slow. I think they actually forgot about us at some point. We needed to go back to the bar and remind them a few times about our order. The beer was good though and the place was cozy.

This bar makes use of its extensive upstairs space and, unlike many other pubs, has a full bar and bar staff up there. Bathroom could be modernised, and the bar needs more seating and coat hooks Staff are friendly. Pints of Guinness are perfect.

Just off Grafton street this was what you want in a pub with food. Fast attentive service, local traditional food, without the over commercialized nonsense of Temple Bar.

Great place for a good lunch. Recommend the roast sandwich, freshly sliced meat from a roast, or the irish stew. Nice touch is the glasses of water setup ready

This was the first place we visited once arriving in Dublin. We were hungry and just wanted a nice hearty lunch. The place was packed out when we entered but we were advised upstairs had tables free. I had a pint of black and an Irish Lamb Stew, which was lovely. Friendly service and a nice cosy atmosphere. Would definitely... More
