Open on Monday night, a few others didn't open Monday, and therefore a quieter night. Child friendly. Really tasty food, and Guinness of course. There is a value menu, being certain items off the main menu offering a reduced rate for two or three courses. Friendly, nice atmosphere, and no horrible loud music!

Love Teach, always make time to eat here when I'm in Carlow, Sunday dinner is a must. You can order half portions which is brilliant.

Went here for a birthday meal, ordered the chicken burger, it was half a chicken fillet sliced in middle and served on a bun with a hand full of chips for €13, the burger was horrendous, honestly it was the same portion you'd get in Burger King or macdonnalds, I would not eat here again nor would I reckon mend...

Quick bite on a Monday night, this is a great restaurant. The pub was quiet enough but there was a good crowd in the restaurant. The food was great, the service excellent. There's a great choice and the price is quite reasonable. Only downfall the two desserts we looked for weren't available.

Chicken supreme was dry, food arrived minutes after order (had clearly been prepared in advance) veg were undercooked and cold and the mashed potatoes (served in those horrible 1990s ice cream scoop balls) were beginning to develop a crust they were so old. My boyfriend loved his lasagne though, perhaps I was unlucky. Service was lacking.

It was a great place! The chowder was amazing! Go for the steak special, with a glass of wine included! My boyfriend's burger was a bit dry though but for the rest it was a 5/5!
