“Not great”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Not great but good decent Guinness, tough looking crowd. Bar man a bit grumpy, but can't beat a decent pint

“A bit overpriced”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Had dinner here recently, ordered a chicken grazing plate for two which was more like a starter for one- delicious but very little on the plate for the price. Had steak (again because dinner was a treat) which was delicious and so was desert-but expect to pay more than expected for a three course meal, most places in Dublin now do an early bird /two course special which I thought there might be. In the end we enjoyed it, but, too expensive for a regular outing and honestly, I get the whole trying to be posher to bring in the dosh but it's a pub... Trying to be a posh restaurant.. Dinner was yum but for the prices I'm not sure I'd eat here again, all about value for money these days.
