Food is great, when it comes.

The food from Sextons is always great, but it is usually always a long wait and the service does sometimes leave something to be desired.

Much improved from our last visit over a year ago. Steak was lovely, came on a hotpan plate sizzling away in front of you, love that! Great kids dinners too. Staff maybe good do with turnin the frown upside down.. Not ignorant, just not overly pleasant. 3.5/5 for me. Reasonably priced too. Guinness is good.

My son and I were coming back from a sporting occasion in Dublin and were slightly delayed. In order to make up for lost time, I rang ahead and ordered our meal. We arrived in twenty five minutes, were shown to our seats and immediately our meal arrived! The steaks were cooked to perfection, as was the sides and half... More

This used to be the pace to go for a steak. And i loved going, went may times over the years. However, recently I dropped on for the first time in a long time, and was blow away by how bad the experience was. The place has not changed at all, and I don't mean that in a good way.... More

Had a family meal here and really can't fault it. It's a lovely spot, very cosy coming in from the rain. Food was amazing, and portions massive. Highly recommend the seafood pasta and looking forward to my leftovers later!! The father raved about the lamb shank too. Everyone cleared their plates. Service was great from the barman and waitresses. Very... More

We stopped in 'Sextons' after deciding to leave the freeway for a restroom break and to explore the coast a little after being in the car too long. There are a lot of places like this in Ireland outside towns and villages and we weren't sure what to expect. Well the lady working behind the bar was friendly and gave... More

A grand place did exactly what it said on the tin, neither was it expensive. Place was very quiet for a Friday lunchtime. Nice, clean

Myself and two other members of my family dined here a few weeks back. It was a Friday evening and very few people were actually in the restaurant. Our order was taken promptly and the starters arrived quickly. Garlic bread and garlic mushrooms were lovely. The mains however were disappointing. The cheesey chicken was tasty. The cod was utterly disappointing.... More
