Pub seemed really nice till the bill came. The drinks we ordered were more expensive than that was what stated on the menu that we were handed when we arrived. We spoke to the manager and they said they had implemented new menus that they...had not given us with more expensive products…Instead of apologising for the mistake or offering the original price of the products they had shown us, he implied we were cheap for not just paying the bill, and said we shouldn’t order drinks if we couldn’t afford it. If we had received an apology, we would have been happy to pay the extra as that wasn’t the problem, it was the fact we had clearly been conned and the manager was very insulting about the situation, zero apologies, and zero customer service skills.More

Yes what a pub Well bugibba does offer some good bars, well this is an exceptional bar. Located in a row of 3 bars this is far right. Obvious reason why this is always busy. The service is brilliant. there beer is cold and the...cocktails taste amazing. The guy behind the bar has a great attitude, well all there staff do. Watching him spin cocktail shakers. They do have football on when it's on well what a night that was . I'm not a football fan but the atmosphere was amazing. We didn't actually eat here. But alot of people did and the food looked good and people didn't leave anything. Just don't think my liver would of survived if I started with dinner there. This is definitely a pub to visit while hereMore

They have a great selection of beers and cocktails. Unfortunately the great IPA they had on draught, is no longer available. I hope they expand their draft selection with IPA's, pale ales and reds. Cocktails are reasonable priced and also available in larger sizes. The...food selection was more limited than upon my last visit, but Covid restrictions may be the cause of this.More

Nice beers on draft. A little more expensive than in othe pubs, but they are serving craft beers and an excellent IPA. Good service. And excellent cocktails. They have a food menu as well. Just the average pub grub, like burgers. Good if you want...something to eat while drinking.More

Popped in for a quick drink after visiting the Aquarium. Instantly met with smiles, and enjoyed a chat with the very welcoming Michael! He gave us some great info for what we are looking for in the area, and made us feel at home. Genuine...appreciation for our custom (which some places should make more effort with!). Stayed longer than intended, to take advantage of the cocktail happy hour 😉 They don't wimp out on the strength, I can tell you! All in all a simple sports bar with pleasant staff!More

Went for supper to this bar/diner and ordered chicken strips. 30min later the waitress brought a burger!! Watched as she told him i hadnt ordered a burger and he then re-entered my order into their system but he didnt come and explain the error to...me. When questioned, the waitress said the manager made a mistake putting in my order, even though it was him I spoke to. So he finally comes in about and I ask how chicken strips sounds like a burger? He mumbles he made a mistake and Im like, so why not tell me, the customer?? Did you just expect me to wsit another half hour with no explanation? He then picked up my drink and told me to get the f**k out of his pub! Not very professional and no, I wont visit ever again and Ive told all my friends not to gk there either!! Some manners from the manager would definitly not have gone amiss - very rude and very unproffesional conductMore

Went in on Sunday,a GAA match was on , lovely waitress/server took our orders off the happy hour menu.We had a few then the wife went to pay at the bar,36 euro the grumpy fellow asked for,she paid but came back to the table thinking...a bit steep.We went through what we had and found we overcharged by 9.90euro. The wife checked with the waitress who pulled up the bill, apparently we were paying for the next tables burger and chips. Now mistakes happen but the geezer behind the bar said" nothing I can do till is closed"..WTF!! The waitress had to demand he gave back the difference. Shoddy by the fellow,he must have thought we suckers and can pay his mates meals,I wonder if it's happened before to unsuspecting patrons? Thanks to the lady,shame on the other. If nothing else we will be getting an itemised bill in future.More

We were staying in an apartment nearby and decided to give it a try. We called in one evening for something light. I had a burger, my wife had a chicken salad. We also shared a plate of cheesy nachos. The food was good and...well presented. If you are looking for a more sophisticated menu, look elsewhere. The atmosphere is good and there are plenty of customers sitting outside chatting away. I felt it is more of a meeting place for drinks and chats until late, than a food venue.More
