This is a great place to eat! the menu is to die for! Do try the Goats Cheese and Red Pepper Croquette, the Duck Spring roll and their bangers (sausage) and mash. Staff are friendly and attentive and make the diner feel at home. We were that impressed with went back for our breakfast the next day!

I recently visited for lunch, while working in Kilkenny City for the day. There was a busy atmosphere about the place. I was recommended by TripAdvisor reviews to this pub, so I gave it a go! The pub had nice decor and lots of people/customers from Europe and USA eating inside. They had a large menu option, but I went... More

I gave them a 5 because they do not allow a 10. Service and food was superb to say the least. Fast friendly. I strongly recommend this place. Great prices.

I had the wrap with the cashew nuts...sorry don't remember what it was called. It had slices of parsnip and sweet potato in it also. It was hands down the tastiest wrap I've ever had....I'd have had two if I wasn't so full. The service was great and the bar and toilets are squeaky clean. I'll be back 100%

Went here Sunday morning for early breakfast. Very busy place 2 x towers ordered with tea and coffee. Service quick and food was very nice. Staff seem to be a bit disconnected to everything going on around them.

This place had been recommended by one of the locals as outside sitting was available. Unfortunately there was no outside seating so we ventured inside. My partner took a seat while i stood at the counter trying to get a menu. The 3 staff members completely ignored my presence and walked by several times without so much as a greeting... More

Stopped in the bar today for some lunch and I cannot complement it enough, I had the chicken Caesar salad in a starter portion and it was a very generous portion with some chunky chips on the side, it was very fresh, tasty and very reasonably priced for a city centre location. I will defiantly call in here again for... More
