“Excellent, must come back to try the beer selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Food was excellent. Fresh, really tasty. Open kitchen and layout added to the experience. Great selection of options on menu. We were driving so no drink was taken, but we will definitely return to taste massive selection of beers.

“Lovely food and nice atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

A really nice place and much bigger than you would expect. We were visitors in the area and decided to call in for tea the food was really nice with plenty of dishes with that something a little bit different. The staff were lovely and very informative, we mostly had the early bird special which was good value for money and plenty of choice. The kids menu was also good. As you can see the chels at the pass! There is plenty to watch. A really nice place and if I was in the area again I would go back.

“A very pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Really excellent food for a pub. Steak sandwich was really tasty. The batter on the fish and chips was very light and the homemade ketchup was delicious. Staff were great as well...attentive without being overbearing. Considering we happened on this place by accident it really was a very pleasant surprise.

“Good service, imaginative food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The Central is a very good place to eat in Navan. It's large and rambling with a number of smaller venues. We ate in the ground floor with open kitchen. Food was very good and service was friendly and efficient. It's in the town center so parking can be a problem. Recommended,
