Dine in Sextons quite regularly and always find the staff friendly. It can be a busy place and at times the service can be a little slow when they cater for a large crowd. However the food is always good and hot and the portion size is generous. My own favourite is the stake sandwich mushrooms fried onions on brown... More

I've been to sextons a few times but the food has gradually gotten worse. The waitress and bar man were efficient and was lovely but the manager verges on being rude. The food, although not expensive could be better for the price. The main course was salty and tasteless and the chips, cooked from frozen, were greasy. The dishes were... More

My husband and I went to Sexton's last night to watch the Ireland game and had a meal while we were there. We both ordered burger and chips, the meal came and looked fine, however the beef had no flavour and was very bland. The chips looked like they had either been cooked and re-heated or that the oil needed... More

I stopped off for lunch with a group of friends in Sextons after a night out in blackrock. The moment we came in the door we were made to feel welcome with no fuss being made as tables had to be moved around to accommodate us (we were a group of 10 with no reservation). All of the staff were... More

We booked Sexton's for a very special occasion last Saturday. The full experience: the staff, the food, the ambience, the price it was much more better than we could have asked for. They were really accommodated to our requirements and even done more than we asked for to make our day a very "special one". I will highly recommend this... More

The service is not good and the foods okay. Could put more sauce on the chicken wings and maybe a bit more flavouring, a side dipping sauce would also be great.

Really nice place, great decor, very nice people and very quick service. Starters: I got the brie which was very nice, but it could of been cooked longer as the cheese was a bit hard still in the middle. Main: I got the 10oz sirloin steak, very well cooked. I asked for medium to well done and it came out... More

5 of us arrived and sat in the empty bar to watch a football match. We ordered some drinks off a young barman and asked for menus, and ordered food. So far so good. 2 of us went to the bar where another barman proceeded to ignore us. He served a few other people, then dragged over a few stools... More
