What a place ! If it's beer, or cocktails you're looking for this place has a great selection of both. Was only in Dublin for 1 night and we were recommended a couple of bars,this one definitely the best. The smoked old fashioned would be my favorite ! Whenever I do come back I will most certainly be returning again.... More

Had a lovely smoked old fashioned with a friend of mine. Special thanks to Barbara, a Polish waitress who was really nice to us. We'll be back.

Fantastic cocktails, brilliant beer selection and the Sunday roast is phenomenal! Always a good atmosphere and great place to have a quiet drink (or a lot of loud drinks), meet friends or watch sport... The staff are what really makes this place though, all the bartenders are very talented and knowledgable in addition to being really nice guys and all... More

We went there for the Sunday roast as it has had many good reviews on Trip Advisor. Due to having to get a 16:00 flight from Dublin airport, we had booked the roast beef lunch for 12:30 so our group of five were one of the first in, so not much of an atmosphere. However the staff were very friendly... More

Door staff were intimidating and tried more to prevent entry than encourage you from going in. Once inside music and atmosphere was good but the bar staff had the same attitude as the doorman where he was flipant and unfriendly demeanor. Won't be back!!

Great food and ambience. Our server Hugo was really fun - coming over from time to time to top up our glasses and crack a joke.

Lovely staff & comfy but noisy families around made it hard to settle in. Had good cheese platter but decided not to stay for meal as too noisy & menu didn't grab us.

I guess it shouldn't be a surprise considering the door is kept open at all times, but the first thing I noticed were the flies on the bar, around my head, and surrounding an empty pitcher on the bar. we ordered drinks, and I will say that mine was delicious. about 1/4 way thru, I noticed a dead fly in...

The food was fine, although my husband's steak was cooked medium well instead of medium rare as he had requested. The main reason I am giving three stars is that this is the only restaurant/pub we ate in during a three week trip through Ireland, England and Scotland where we had a waiter with an attitude. I don't know if... More
