We stopped by The Holy Cross Pub because of a recommendation we were given by the owner of our B&B right down the road. Were glad we did! It was a Friday night and they had a tremendous sing-along going on. It seemed like everyone in town was there. Once the locals found out we were visitors they treated us to numerous rounds of Guinness and serenaded my girlfriend (Kathleen) with great renditions of "Take Me Home Again Kathleen". What a great night!

I must admit that we found the food OK but not outstanding. That being said, the next time were back in Ireland and near Waterford we'll definitely be making a stop at The Holy Cross Pub!!

The food and beer choices were good. We thought the prices were a little high for the selection but the service was great.

We called to the Holy Cross for Lunch this week and once again we were not disappointed. I love eating here, the menu is varied, there is somthing for every taste. The food is always freshly cooked, the garlic potatoes are a must. For people with children or just out with a group of friends the value for money is second to none. You could not possible get a nicer lunch for ten euros per person. I could not cook this lovely dinner at home for that money. The chef who serves the carvery lunches actually listens to what you would like/want...very rare!! The staff are wonderful. If you are looking for a great tasting, good value lunch in Waterford do not pass the Holy Cross.

Went for breakfast with an friend and have to say we enjoyed a really excellent full Irish for a great price €7.50 for 2 sausages, 2 bacon, egg, black pudding, white pudding, beans, mushrooms, toast and brown bread, and large pot of coffee. Its a breakfast that will keep you going fro the day.The bar its self is large and warm with friendly staff too. Will stop here again
