Great pub grub with locally sourced food. It was lovely to eat outside and soak in the atmosphere of Dubliners relaxing with their families and friends and tourists pleased they had picked a decent eaterie. We went there twice, and were not disappointed.

I liked the look of the place but from previous reviews, expected more from the food. Everything was ok and fairly well priced though I thought the side of mash looked a little past its best. I don't think I would return and what swayed me from leaving 3 rather than 4 was that I was a little disappointed to... More

I have taken on board your point about the high chairs and they have now been relocated. If you are in... More

Friendly staff, quite good service, they do a mean thai curry. Why oh why must they always put pats of butter on the table are there no small dishes in the kitchen. I have mentioned this on many occasions but nobody does anything about it.remember it is the little things that count.

The place was pretty busy when we arrived and a large number of tables were reserved for a later party. We found a spot to eat prior to another group arriving and had a good meal of burgers. There is an outdoor patio that over looks the river and another that would have been really nice to enjoy the warm... More

Hi Debbie K Many Thanks for your reviews - our burger is a very popular dish, glad to hear you also approve! I take on board your comment about the smoking and will look at the possibility of making an area of the outdoor seating smoke free during food service. If you are in Wicklow again be sure to drop...

Big friendly pub…good service . The food is very good and a good selection to choose from. Steaks and leek soup are great. Kind of between a pub and a restaurant.

Excellent food I had the rib eye and my wife had the burger, both were very tasty. Our starters were the crabs and the king prawns which were also excellent. The accommodations are also good and available at a reasonable price.
