Friday evening, looking for somewhere for a nice end of weeks drink, look no further than Geoffs. Even as early as 5pm on a Friday evening, there will be a great crowd and atmosphere in there. Very big so no fear of not getting a table but it does fill up quick. Very popular spot. Excellent range of drinks and... More

Geoffs just keeps on getting better and better. I have been going there on my visits to Waterford for years and it keeps on improving.

Second time eating here and the service was unbelievable. I'm unfortunately terrible at getting names but our waiter was brilliant. Service not just with a smile but a laugh and a joke. The food can't be ignored either with delicious food at reasonable prices.

We had heard about Geoff's by watching an episode of Lyndey Milan Taste of Ireland and after a tour of the Waterford Crystal Factory, it seemed the perfect place to stop for a pint and lunch. Upon entering the pub we were greeted by Ted, who, along with the Irish Stew was featured in the Waterford episode of Lyndey Milan.... More

I have met friends here in the past for board games. They have a lot of large tables suitable for gaming There is a nice bar that serves food and drinks. It also has a large funky outdoor area.

Geoffs is a huge premises with so many little alcoves and tremendous character. Seems to be a busy spot, popular for food and drink. Staff are excellent here and friendly. Only fault was the background music, but that's only a minor thing,lovely venue to relax in and enjoy a lazy afternoon.

I love this great bar. The food is really good, and the atmosphere is second to none. All the staff are so lovely and nothing is too much trouble. The menu seemed smaller than last time? But everything we ordered was great. Thanks to everyone and looking forward to a return visit.👍

It was serendipity when we dropped into Geoff's. It was the informal layout that caught my eye, then the welcoming smile of the owner – Geoff – I'd guess. Great coffee and some really good Guinness Cake. Watching and listening to local suppliers drop in with their wares – then engaging us in their conversations was really enjoyable. Made us... More
