My husband and I stayed in an AirBnB in Navan and our host recommended The Central. . . and we are so glad he did! It was so good, we ate there two nights in a row! The first night, we ate in the restaurant area because the bar was full. Fantastic service. We both got pizza. I have Celiac's and was so appreciative of the DELICIOUS gluten free crust! Even my husband, who isn't gluten free, said it was the best GF crust he had ever tried. The gluten free double chocolate brownie was also to die for! The second night, we ate in the bar for a change of scenery. Great service again! I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Got the last two seats for lunch - place packed but very much service with a smile (again)

The food was delicious - especially the Smoked Salmon on Swedish Cracker Bread with all of the freshest trimmings.

Top marks and can’t fault the food, the welcome and the atmosphere.

Currently visiting from the States with my wife. We were recommended to try out the Central by our B&B. We sat in the front bar area however there is also a more formal dining area out the back. Traditional Irish pub feel with a modern twist. We felt very welcomed by our server Sara. She had a great knowledge of the local area and made some awesome recommendations of things we should do and see during our stay on the beautiful Emerald Isle. Food was excellent. Service was quick and efficient. The menu has a large selection and there is something for everybody. Also very accommodating towards my wife who is gluten intolerant. Good selection of beer on tap including some local varieties. Live music every night. Would highly recommend 10/10.
