Recently had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant in Swords & had fantastic food which was flavoursome & plentiful also great value for money in a delightful atmosphere where a young girl called Sarah Lu sang while we ate & she was brill. The staff were extremely friendly & super efficient -Fíona served our table and was so helpful with menu & requests. Well done to all..

My favorite spot is just beside fire place - very cozy and nice to sit down and have a glass of wine or some hot drink, especially on cold winter evening. Reasonably priced drinks. Cant comment food - never eat here. Its busy place. All in all, was never left disappointed!

I was recently in swords visiting some friends after the birth of there baby and we decided to head out for a bite to eat so we headed into swords & settled on Wrights cafe bar it was just after the busy lunch time period so place was quiet but spotless clean considering our waitress had told us they were hectic for lunch.
Myself & my wife had the potato skins which were super portion size was great and the blue cheese dip hit the spot with them our friends had soup & Caesar salad which they both said was lovely.For mains I had the beef burger which was fantastic along with a portion of onion rings & my wife had Asian noodle stir fry with chicken which she enjoyed veg was nice and crunchy and plenty of chicken as well.our friends both had the fish & chips which they said was super as usual and we had a bottle of Australian Chardonnay which washed the whole meal down nicely.I have to say a super meal In lovely surroundings and reasonably priced as well for what we got.
The staff are very attentive and the toilets were spotless couldn't fault the whole venue.its safe to say myself & my wife will definitely be heading back to wrights the next time we are in swords.
