We ate here yesterday and having previously heard good reports about the food i could not have been more disappointed.
Myself and my gf ordered a number of different lite bites between us. We ordered bbq chicken wings which were probably the worst wings i have ever had, covered in bread crumbs and over cooked with a tiny drizzle of bbq sauce, almost half the wings had no sauce on them, awful. The calamari was the strangest as half of them were lovely, the other half were brown like they had been cooked in two differnet batches with one batch cooked in dirty oil, half of them were unedible. The potato skins were fairly bland and didnt really taste of anything. The biggest disappointment was the pil pil prawns, for 8e we received 3 prawns which were overed in a thick greasy batter. For 8 euro 3 prawns is scandlous.
The rest of the table got the lamb carvery, the otheres complained the carrots werent cooked and the mash potato was horrible.
This was not a good experience and i would eat here again.

This pub is in a great location and the food is lovely but the service is bad. It took ages for someone to come and give us menu's. The place was quite grubby which I was surprised at but considering the poor service I guess the staff don't like to clean either. Barman was very friendly and helpful though!

newly refurbished, with a roof garden and exec type bar upstairs, Duffys has been very popular in Malahide. Food is good too, and the staff are efficient, and most have been working here for years. If you are looking for a young crowd, go to Gibneys instead.

We took a walk in Malahide. Ended up at Duffy's Pub. Decent food and drink for the price. Reminded me of an American sports bar with a vague Irish theme.
