Popped into restaurant after shopping. Two menu's available as early in the evening. Chose from bar menu and had a turkey and ham meal with champ and veg - wonderful. Service was good and the prices very reasonable especially if you just want something good to eat to save cooking after a day at the shops!

The staff were very friendly and efficient . Was a very memorable evening. They will also arrange you a lift home at the end of the night. Irish hospitality... More

Stopped on the way to see Ed in Croke Park. Very friendly staff and delicious food. Had to wait a little while on food. Very accommodating of my food allergy. Kept my phone save for me when I left it behind. Great place to stop on the way to Dublin.

We were in Castleblayney on a return visit to Ireland from Albany, NY, searching for ancestral roots and reconnecting with distant relatives. For the relatives who live there, Old Coach is a favorite, and it has become ours as well. Raymond treats his customers like old friends, and even sang "Welcome Home" to my wife Jacki and me, after a... More

We stopped in on our way home from the All Ireland final. Although we didn't have a reservation, We were welcomed and taken straight to our table. Staff were friendly and attentive. Menu was wide ranging and food came quickly after ordering. I had an egg mayonnaise and chunky chips. My husband had steak and champ. Food was really tasty... More

Was there after a fishing match and as always, the Old Coach Inn and its staff did not let us down. Refurbished, since I was last there and it is a great job. Food fantastic and the beer was great. A lovely pub with nice people working there. Always a pleasure to go there.

This is the second time I have been to Watters, last time i didn't review as although i wasn't overly impressed with the value, my friends were impressed with the food. Last night however, none of us were particularly thrilled. It's not new, they have always done it, but the idea of the main course coming with absolutely nothing except... More
