Description: Welcome to Hatter's Lane Bistro at Strand Street on Athlone's Leinster shore. Ideally located 3 minutes from the Town Bridge, Radisson, Prince of Wales and Sheraton hotels. The Hollywood themed bistro offers a welcoming cosy atmosphere with open fire, check table clothes, walls adorned with movie star icons. The background music is easy listening typically featuring tunes from Sinatra, Martin, Bennett and the likes... Running in tandem with Gertie Brown's old world award winning pub, Hatters Lane offers the customer a unique and satisfying dining experience and hopefully will continue to serve great food well for years to come...

“Gorgeous meal”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Ate here on Friday 5th July with my parents. We didn't have a booking but they managed to fit us in. Atmosphere was lovely , very relaxed & cosy. Staff were lovely, friendly & efficient. We ordered the pork & steak. The food was beautiful! Really really good. Nothing to complain about. I would definitely recommend Hatters to family & friends.
