Im sorry to say I have to agree with the previous reviews. We went to Caffrey's for the first time last Sunday. I looked at their website and saw a weekend special on Saturday/Sunday two course meal advertised at 16 euro so we decided to give it a try. We waited a while to be seated and unfortunately were seated next to a large family group with several young children who almost were wrestling on top of us. When I asked for the menu for the weekend special the waitress gave me a look as if I was stupid and said we don't do weekend specials you got that wrong . We ordered turkey and Ham.. It was poor carvery food at a la carte prices. Turkey cold and dry and only one roast potato. The vegetables served were cabbage and turnip, Im not fond of cabbage so I asked if i could replace it with a different vegetable and the waitress looked at me as if I was a trouble maker. She told me cabbage is all you can have.
Nobody came back to us during our meal to see if we were ok or needed drinks etc.
I eventually went up to the bar and asked for a desert menu and after ordering we waited 40 mins for 2 deserts which were small average and overpriced . I asked twice if the deserts were ready and was told they would be here in a minute. We were about to walk out when they arrived. Overall i would say the staff were disorganised ignorant and the food was not up to the standard for the price charged. I have gone to many pub carvery's were the food was hot fresh and large portions and a good selection.At least on those occasions I didn't have to wait ages to be served by rude staff. I was disappointed because I went out of my way to travel to Batterstown to try Caffrey's as I heard it was award winning food and the decoration was very nice, Sorry I wont return again .
