“A superb all-rounder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

Top notch dishes, excellent deals, a hub of activity every evening and all the live televised sports. I've been there a few times and it never disappoints.

“Best casual Place in cork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

I love sober lane for many reasons: it's basically what a good bar should be. The food is tasty,smart and very good value. The real essence of sober lane is the ambience of it.chilled, friendly and casual are the quickest adjectives to mind but really, you'll have to call in for a tasty pint to decide your own ones!

“Hands down the best pub in Cork...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

Sober Lane is a great pub to go to any night of the week. The food is great, the service is outstanding and there's alway a great atmosphere. From coin flip Sundays to beer pong Mondays to 20eu pitchers/pizza deal to 10eu breakfast, pints and berrocca hangover cures, you can't beat the deals! I've organised several parties there both for hockey and for friends and the staff have always been great and very accomodating... They'll work with you to ensure you have the best time to fit your budget... Definitely my favourite pub in Cork!

“Great pub with lots going on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

I've been here a few times. A great pub with friendly staff and lots of crazy capers going on there. Nice pub food with lots of screens for GAA, soccer and rugby game and some nice memorabilia on the walls. Great to watch a match in of an afternoon or enjoy the madness later on in the evening

“Fantastic atmosphere and Pizzas to die for!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

This is a pub that has something for everyone. It's very relaxed and the staff are fantastic - friendly and attentive. The pizzas are amazing and definitely the best available in town. They do a great deal where you get a pitcher of beer and pizza for €20 or for the non-beer drinkers you can get a bottle of wine or 2 cocktails instead. There is something different on here every night of the week so you're ensured a good buzz no matter what. I'd highly recommend Sober Lane - check out their Facebook page for updates on offers and nightly entertainment. Get there when you're in Cork and enjoy!
