“We were treated like regulars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this pub on our first day in Dublin. Many hours and pints and laughs later we literally stumbled back out. We went back 2 more times and Darren treated us like regulars. The food was amazing and filling. Make sure you have the Bread and Butter pudding. They insist!

The atmosphere was wonderful and the characters were true locals.

We will definitely be back to celebrate our wedding anniversary in the years to come!

“Amazing food - Average everything else!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

A group of 8 of us ate at the Hairy Lemon on Saturday.
On walking in we all wondered what we were in for..... The food however was lovely and I would have no hesitation in returning for that!
We were sat in a bad location tho, by the toilets and the door to the smoking area so that wasn't ideal. The service was slow, however it was very busy so we excused that and won't hold that against them.
What we do hold against them tho is the service charge included on the bill...... When we had the worst seats in the place, experienced slow service and had one member of our party's bag and coat soaked because of a dripping leak from the ceiling above - Without sufficient apology - Not ideal and could easily have been resolved on the day with a token and apology from the manager.

“The bread and butter pudding is a MUST!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Nice pub, good food, great service. Even when the place filled up, we didn't have a long wait.
The cottage pie was ok, the burgers were good, and the bangers and mash got rave reviews from those of us who tried them. The desserts are to die for, try the bread and butter pudding... you'll be coming back for more of that!

“Fraud Alert! but fabulous food and great Guinness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

The waiter hovered over me as i put my PIN number into the visa machine (witnessed by the whole group) he then walked off out of my sight behind the bar with my Visa card and the machine. As he returned 2 mins later with my card which had been removed from the machine, I assumed that it has been skimmed fraudulently so cancelled the card immediately and reported the 'incident' to Pearse St police
The food, atmosphere, and venue were fabulous :)

“Great atmosphere and people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Came here for a couple of drinks with a friend and stayed all night. Friendly service, brilliantly decked out bar and awesome music. Spent the latter half of the evening air drumming to Springsteen. Joy!
