We decided to take the five minute walk from the citywest hotel into saggart village and were glad to find such a lovely restaurant. We had three courses and had no complaints whatsoever. The interior is light spacious and airy, from the exterior this is not what you would expect. Staff were very attentive and friendly and were glad to... More

I choose, from the Tapas menu, fish cakes, spicy chicken wings and a selection of breads with dips, the wings were so tasty and the... More

We were staying in a nearby hotel but decided to 'eat out' at the Anvil that night. Were we glad that we did? Absolutely! Although it was extremely busy - I think that the 'early bird' diners were still there when we arrived - our table was ready and iced water arrived soon after we were seated. We only wanted... More

Steaks are good and bangers and mash is fab and brings me back to my childhood. Meat is sourced from family butcher (so they claim) and meat is definitely good. Outside is good... More
