Went for dinner with my mum. I had the duck spring rolls and the shoestring chips and she had the beef stir fry. The food was absolutely delicious, the servings were quite large but manageable. We were both delighted with the food and the pub had a lovely atmosphere.

When we first arrived in Waterford 2 years ago, my husband asked around for a good pub and this was the recommendation. It has been the one fairly regular outing that we have. My husband also likes the food here and we often end up staying for more than just drinks. It's always busy and there's great atmosphere.

Geoff's is an unassuming-looking place from the outside. And inside, it is dark and warren-like, with a mismatched hodgepodge of tables and chairs. Frankly, to these two American visitors, it didn't seem very inviting. We considered leaving. So glad we didn't! The food was great. Fresh, locally sourced, wonderfully prepared. The manager was cheerful, welcoming, knowledgeable. He was very helpful... More

I ALWAYS get terrible service. I often have to wait up to 25 minutes and food arrives cold or I have to chase staff for it. Then they try and brush it off on me with a "put up or shut up" tricks like it will take another 25 minutes to recook the whole dish from scratch.The pub is lovely... More

In the center of the city this old time pub offers atmosphere and good food.. Three of us went on a Friday evening which was very busy. Reservations are accepted. A delicious prawn curry was presented to my self. My colleagues had a lamb burger & fries and calamari. Lovely presentation and as equally tasty and plentiful.

Tipped by locals as "the best pub in Waterford", we had to try this place for Saturday dinner. It was a good choice. The pub is a maze of dark areas, with an eclectic selection of furniture and it has a pleasant bustle about it. A reasonable selection of beers and a well made G&T helped ease us in. The... More

What a spot! Excellent music on a Saturday night and plenty of space and seats for a couple or group, big or small to go and enjoy a few drinks. We went there last Saturday with some friends and, did not expect to stay so long but the music and atmosphere were so good there we just had to stay... More

We visit Geoff's every time we are in Waterford. The Food is excellent, Really cool atmosphere. They will split any adult dish for Kids @ 50% of the price. Open Crab Bruschetta is excellent with a lovely portion size and not smoulder in mayo.
