Great option for Sunday lunch, traditional food, done well. Very reasonable prices too. Busy at peak times on Sunday, may need to book at table. Staff friendly and helpful.

Ok pub food - portions generous, but menu uninspiring. Staff not switched on and didn't really care if we were served or not.

Staff was friendly and food was very good. Enjoyed the cozy bar atmosphere with some drinks and enjoyed the traditional type of Irish whiskey.

We just dropped in for a drink on our way to Cork and found the atmosphere cheery and warm. We may have considered dining however the dining-room was closed for a wedding reception. Overall, a charming pub with great atmosphere and friendly, welcoming staff.

The old Thatch is a must if you are in Cork. Easy to find, good parking at rear and beer garden for a sunny day. Great friendly atmosphere, great service and delicious food( especially the seafood chowder)

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon. The menu is a little dated but what's on it is lovely. Id the Thai red curry and rice and a tiny portion of chips but over all the portion was quite large. My friend had the beef dinner and said it was fabulous. We both had desserts and found them rich and tasty.... More
