Tasty food, good service, clean bathrooms. I definitely recommend this find to others. We were on the tail end of pub hopping and seeking food when we came across this place. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly.

Really great little place. The upstairs is like a restaurant, but with pub prices! Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and the food was great too. Definitely worth a visit!

Myself and my partner went to a Kilkenny for a midweek break and found this wonderful place. It was very cold outside but as soon as we opened the door of the Marble City Bar we could feel the warmth and noted the lovely atmosphere. We then ordered drinks followed by some food. The food was very well presented, piping... More

Service was ok, food was also, only ok, i wouldn't be rushing back. Maybe visit when its quite so you can get the care, service and food... More

This was our second try at this 'Top Gastro Pub' having not been won over on our first attempt back in August. On a Saturday afternoon in December we expected it to be busy, but we were packed in like sardines and you could exchange DNA with the adjoining tables - an ambiance that goes beyond cosy and proves trick...

Visited here on 28 December, ordered two meals. One meal was a Classic Ceasar Salad without croutons or lardons, presented with 3 chicken gougons on 3 small pieces of lettuce with chips. If this is a main course for €10.50 I would hate to see the starter, unlikely to revisit
