The restaurant was quite busy for a tuesday... More

Second stay this year in Athlone, visited the pub upstairs from Hatters the last time and further led astray by Denis and Helena this time that we did both bistro and pub. High quality food and wine in small but fantastic venue. Everything was cooked very well the scallops and cheesecake were the highlights plus the duck was just right.... More

We were cruising on the Shannon & stopped in Athlone'. Hatters Bistro is a fabulous find - quite old fashioned inside, with a warm & cosy atmosphere & memorabilia of old movie stars.. The Barbary Duck is recommended along with the Pork dish - the food & service was excellent & overall good value - worth a visit

Had dinner here with my husband and kids. It was gorgeous. We had the value men which at €25 for 3 courses was indeed value! The boys had half portions of food that was on the main menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to see them eating "real" food and not the usual rubbishy fare of "everything with... More
