Don't waste your money, dreadful food , rude management , no parking , over priced , menu descriptions are no where near what is served to you. Nice waitresses though, feel sorry for them working in such a horrible place

It's reasonable to assume when you eat out that your food shall be cooked in an oven. Not according to our waitress who had to reheat one of our parties lasagna in the microwave.Where has the passion gone?

The dining room was low on atmosphere, the staff were robotic and the food was poor. Starters were not too bad but I am sure the prawns were from a frozen pack. The meat was well overcooked in the main course and the chips were from a frozen packet. The desserts were poor. I will not be back.

The food and service here is great. The menu has all the usual wholesome favourites and the service is very friendly. The bar provides limited parking but their is also on street parking outside. Its convienently located just off the N7 at the Kill / Johnson or Naas North exit.

I ordered the kale, potato and coconut curry as it sounded lovely. Came out and tasted it, it was like chip shop curry sauce poured over potatoes and kale. Don't know where the coconut came into it unless it was the shavings on top? It was really horrible, chip shop curry sauce is not real curry! The people I was... More

The staff at the Johnstown Inn really are impossible to fault, always smiling, very professional, polite and accommodating. The venue's atmosphere was really nice, cosy and relaxed at all times. The menus on offer have so much variety and all the dishes looked and tasted fantastic. We were a party of 26 and not one of us wanted for anything... More

Stopped here on BH Friday on way to Kilkenny after recommendations from a few people. It was busy when we arrived but we were seated promptly. Menu was limited in terms of healthy choices. My daughter had the pasta from kids menu which was much too spicy for kids. We had ciabattas served with salad and chips. Really non descript... More

The food here is very good. I have been here a number of times and really like the chicken curry, pizzas and the lasagna. The place is also very comfortable with a nice stove during the winter. The staff are also very nice.

I ordered the chicken salad, I was thinking this would be the healthy option, the chicken was fried which made it tough, the plate had very little salad, mostly consistent of coleslaw and patato salad. What green salad was there was in a bath of mayo. Very disappointed...

Called in here for a quick after work dinner. I decided to go for the Josper chargrilled chicken, it sounded tasty and I was keen to have something from the Josper grill, as I've heard lots about them, the high temperatures they cook at, and how the finished product is so tasty. There was an explanation to this effect on... More
