Amazing place!!

This is an absolutely amazing bar. Really comfortable and with great friendly staff. We ate here twice in the week we were in Waterford. A good varied menu, with large portions. I had madras curry and friends had fish of the day, and steak pie and lamb kebabs. Reasonably priced and well presented... read more

Cool pub to stop in and have a pint while in Waterford. A bartender at a previous pub recommended stopping in here to have a drink. Its a very large pub compared to some of the others that we visited while in Ireland. They had a large selection of beers which included several local beers. Bartenders were friendly and the...

Geoffs has one of the best lunches in town it is definitely the best bar food in town. The chips are the nicest chips ever and are worth a visit alone. The fact that they play great music is a bonus

I never tire of going to Geoff's whenever I visit home in Waterford. I has the best atmosphere of any pub I've been to anywhere in the world: plenty of great little nooks for when you want a more private evening, huge tables for when you've got a big crowd and the BEST smoking area out the back to wile...

This is a really cosy pub to settle into for a few drinks, but also a great place to go with friends for coffee and cake - their dessert menu is sublime! Wonderful beer garden out the back with water feature too. Great for a Summers day (or a sunny winter one like we had!)

Went for dinner here - surprisingly difficult to leave once there - it's a wonderful pub - think of a pub with no live music or televisions just honest to goodness friendly staff, great pints, lovely atmosphere and fab food - could not find fault - well worth a visit!

By far the best pub in Waterford for food. Huge portions and always very good (the shoestring fries are addictive). Great atmosphere as well and friendly bartenders.

Had a few lunches here and generally the food is quite good especially the seafood chowder. The only dish I've tried which isn't authentic is the beef stir fried noodles,as mint sauce has been added to it. Otherwise good is well presented and generous portions. Service ok is well worth dropping in if you are in waterford.

Great old bar serves good collection of beers and great food .. Especially the Moroccan lamp and the spiced chicken in the dinner menu. Stuff are so friendly. There is a wide smocking area at the back of the bar. Also if you play chess they got a chess board. 👍
