I had read the reviews about this Gastro pub, and decided to give it a try. We arrived quite early, after an appointment in the next street. As soon as you walk in you get a feeling that this is a well patroned pub. The bar was already busy. We walked to the dining area, and were lucky to get a table. An early bird offer of two courses for around €23 was good value. My husband consumed the Lamb platter and I had the Ling Strips. All very nicely presented and tasty. The only thing that we thought was strange was serving ice in a beer.......is that an Irish thing? Decor very nice and service good.

We read good reviews on this place. We were looking for a few cocktails. We popped in immediately found a place to sit. It was not crowded yet. The bartender took at least 15 min to acknowledge us. Never greeted us with a hello or thank you. Drinks were weak and overpriced. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We did not stay for dinner but based on bar service not sure we would.

We were staying at the hotel next door, but its only the night before we left that we wondered in this bar. We only had drinks, as we had dinner reservations elsewhere

Went here on a Thursday night without a reservation. They were able to seat us immediately despite being very busy and the service was top notch. Food was outstanding. I had the black pudding stuffed pork belly and my wife and I shared the beetroot cured salmon which was out of this world. Was also near several pubs for a quick drink afterward. Despite a huge party walking in during our dinner our service remained excellent throughout the dinner. Highly recommend.

My partner and I availed of the three course set menu for 26.50 each. The portions were well sized and we were not left hungry. The lamb broth was delicious as was the beetroot pickled salmon. The mains of ling and pork belly were substantial and enjoyable. We got the chocolate platter for two for dessert and it was amazing. So very tasty. There is alot on the platter and the two of us had trouble finishing it. The chocolate and chilli tart deserves a mention for its great flavour.

Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. She was on the ball the whole time and was a lovely, friendly girl.

Overall, great value and worth a trip.
