“What a quirky pub - a room for every occasion!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This pub takes up half a street and is split into different sections, each decorated in their own way and providing a totally different ambiance - you could visit here for a week and not get bored! The standard of decor was amazing - immaculate. Even contains its own private cinema

“Sure bet!!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

On our recent group trip our tour conductor, Tony, recommended Langton's as a great place to eat. We had a group of ten who walked about 15 minutes from our hotel to the restaurant. Our first impression was the size. Huge! Several spacious dining areas. And the food and service were great! Everyone in the group loved their entree whether it was fish, lamb, chicken or beef. Our contentment made the walk well worth it.

“Lovely staff- food just ok!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner there today with my family. 2 adults 3 children. Have eaten here plenty of times. It's very pricey for a Sunday dinner and I never leave fully satisfied that my money was well spend. It's such a pity as I really like the place. The staff are always so friendly and always have a chat and look after the children well. Always have smiles and give a great welcome. The food on the other hand :-/. Steak was like an old boot! If they can't use a decent piece of steak on the set menus, take it off the menu!! Children's meals way overpriced. €6.50 for most of them not including a drink or a scoop of ice cream! Will definatly go back but not for overpriced food. A few drinks when I have no children with me!!

“Well worth a visit to.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I have eaten here twice and on both occasions the selection and the quality of the food cannot be faulted. The first time i ate here was in January 2013 as part of a hen night. The food was fantastic but the service was lacking on this occasion. It took 1 and 1/2 hours to be served and eat two courses. This was a shame as we had it booked through a hen night package and we decided to leave having a desert as it had taken so long to have the first two courses and we had a time schedule through the hen party services so we had to leave as we were already late for the next venue. However the second time here it was a completely different experience. The waitress was very efficient and we got to enjoy all three courses in an hour!!! Unfortunately i cannot review the hotel accommodation as i have never had the privilege of staying here yet. But it is well worth a visit for a lovely meal.

“Waited 10mins, no service.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I were in Kilkenny for the day and looking for somewhere to have a nice dinner. We seen the menu outside and decided it looked nice. We went in and sat down at a table in front of the bar. There was a barman there and a waitress walking around serving tables. Neither approached us despite us trying to get their attention. Menus werent on the tables so we couldnt even browse through it while we waited. 10minutes passed and we decided to leave. It is also worth mentioning that a lady went up to the bar to pay her bill and had difficulty getting the barmans attention despite it being a quiet Tuesday afternoon. Would of loved to have tried the food, disappointing that the dire service here prevented that. Who knows how many more customers have walked out after being ignored.
