went for sunday dinner and thought we would all order the fondue for a change. the food was fantastic and love the piping hot gravy. The only thing letting this down is there wasnt enough veg/ spuds for 5 people.

I had Sunday roast here and it was super good! It’s like the kind of roast your grandma makes and big portions!

Ma Boyle’s Famous pies lauded in the menu but in reality very disappointing chicken ham and leek minuscule pieces in a very thin tasteless sauce. Steak pie very tough meat. Tbf chips were decent but that’s all veg gave appearance of the frozen variety.

Sunday roast was good, but they had run out of beef. Portions are quite big. Very friendly service. It was pretty busy on a Sunday evening.

I have been to Boyles on countless occasions over the past few years and it always impresses me and any one else that I am drinking/dining with. It’s perfect for family trips, dates (done a few in there 😬), business power lunching and evening drinks...More

Quickest and surest answer is to give them a call. There are so many rules regarding under 18's and, even taking them into account, it is entirely up to the particular establishment as to wether allow entry or not.

We went there on two thursdays around seven pm, but got a table both times. I'd book if it was a larger group though. Sitting downstairs is not as nice as upstairs, especially whern there is music (Thurdays and Saturdays)
