Nice venue for meeting clients. Decent lunch menu nice coffee. Will be back. Stayed late into evening has a nice buzz and clean pub music is always at a sensible level unlike other bars who seem to think loud is better.

Notice "no prams or buggies" but they didn't object to our buggy. Food is excellent as always. Good value for money.

You cannot go to Waterford without visiting Geoffs. A pub that anybody would be comfortable in. Whether its for a quiet pint and tasty food or meetin with friends for a great night out. Its friendly atmosphere is unrivalled in Waterford.

The thing I love about Geoff's (and I suspect most other people too) is that it has never changed over the years.

The building is really beautiful, with very alternative furniture, like church benches, vintage chairs, old tables, holly water basins, etc. great place for drinks with large or small groups. The smoking area is something else, one the best I have ever seen in my life. There could be more gigs there though.
