“Great Pub Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Had Christmas drinks in Fowler's this year. No problem getting a table for 4, even though the place was pretty busy when we arrived at about 8.30pm on the weekend before Christmas.

Although I live locally, this is the first time I've visited since the place was done up under its new ownership (formerly known as Smyth's). It has been transformed successfully into a popular, modern pub with a good atmosphere - no intrusive, noisy background music, so you can hear yourself talking, even when it's quite full. And the service to the tables was good too.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending it for any social gathering.

“Retirement party”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Retirement party for my colleague. Worked in Malahide years ago when Fowlers used to be Smyths. All changed since then. Really funky pub. Got some platters of pub grub ( was grand. Platters never show off any flair or ability ) would really like to go back for a good night out in malahide

“Great pub awful food !!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Visited a few times for a drink & thought it was great so decided to try the food on a Sunday afternoon I had the beef stew served in a giant bread roll which was very bland in flavour & my girlfriend had chicken wings that looked more like sparrows legs !! Tasted like rubber ! Great pub but awful food !

“Great Pub Grub Food”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This place is great for pub grub food. They stop serving food at 6pm which is the only downside as their food is lovely. They have a wide choice in menu to suit everyone.

“Pub Grub”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Good menu, plenty of choice. The service is a little slow but the food makes up for it. Could be a little more competitive during lunchtime service!!
