“Good and cheap food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

It's a very good place to eat, nice enviroment and very close to hotels such as Silken and Martin where you would probably stay if you are attending a meeting in the main Commission and Council buildings. The average price for a beer is 4 euro and for food is around 13 euro. I suggest the cheeseburger (full extra) and the traditional fish and chips.

Great food, great atmosphere, great service. We really had a blast! I highly recommend it. Authentic pub food at a great price. We'll definitely come again!

“Great place to unwind after work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I pretty much stumbled upon this place by accident, and I absolutely don't regret it. The ambience is really warm, cosy and welcoming. It can get a little noisy, but which busy pub isn't? Service is really good with very friendly staff. The food is really good - there isn't a wide choice, it's the typical pub grub. But it is really nice pub food. Price of both food and drinks are extremely reasonable. Thoroughly recommend it for a relaxed evening with friends.

“Love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Maybe my favourite irish bar.
Decent cheap food.
Can get crowded, but very friendly.
I think they still have these Friday night live music events, which a good for a change.
Definitely try the cheese garlic wedges :)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We go regularly to The Old Oak for dinner and drinks, very cosy with good service, and the food never fails to please.
