Food was delicious and reasonably priced as were the 2 cocktails for 9 euro! Service was extremely fast and friendly. Potato skins starter with salad was really tasty.

The 10€ steak deal is really gorgeous!! Pepper sauce is to die for. My partner had the burger which was also delicious, goddess size portions too. Always good service food and atmosphere here. One of our favs in dublin for sure!

Came here for a bite before heading to the cinema. All the food went down well - the days special cajun chicken particularly delighted my mum. The 8oz Angus burger was a lot of eating but clean plates were sent back to the kitchen. I had the smoked salmon salad, it was a little smaller than i expected, but the brown bread were good thick doorsteps (as it should be!) so i was still pretty happy. Nice looking place, comfy seats. Good service - although maybe a little too attentive if I'm honest. if you stopped eating to talk the plate was nearly gone from beneath you

Wrights went off the boil for a while but it's back on form now. Food is excellent and the steak at €10 is really worth it. Great place for a casual meal in Swords.

Myself, my husband, his brother and his wife ate here for lunch on Sunday. I was eager to try the steak deal they have on offer (€10 for steak, chips and onion rings!)- as I heard it was excellent and indeed it was! The deserts were fab too! Everything we had was delicious! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The service was excellent, the staff was very attentive and I would definitely recommend this cafe bar to friends for lunch or dinner!

Went here for the deal they are currently running - sirloin steak, chips, onion rings and pepper sauce for €10, food was lovely, steaks for me and my friend cooked perfectly, good service and great value, rest of the menu looked nice too

Went in today for a bite to eat - our first visit (2 of us). Asked waiter if they did chile sauvignon blanc, as there was no drinks menu to hand, was told just New Zealand, so had sparkling water instead. We ordered 1 starter of potato skins, and they took over 20 mins to arrive! One of our mains came out, followed by the other 5-10 mins later....the kitchen was very slow to produce food and the waiting staff were very apologetic-wasn't their fault, but they obviously knew kitchen wasn't efficient today. The roast beef was cut extremely thick and very pink in places - not great. After seeing a drinks menu on another table, we had a look and sure enough they do chile sauvignon blanc!! but at this point we were just fed up, paid and left. First and only visit unfortunately.

Getting more and more dissapointed with Wrights. Christmas experience brought goats cheese on a dish that was on the menu as morzerrla because " chef had no morzerrla left". Unable to stand even the smell of goats cheese and 8 months pregnant the dish was returned and I left with an empty stomach. The time before that- also pregnant- my "well done " steak was returned twice for mooing at me, given my fellow diners were finished eating by the time I got it back the second time, still red, I ate what I could and left about 6 of the 8 ounces on the plate. Willing to give it another go as staff are always friendly and it's a nice atmosphere. Our latest visit saw my hubbie order his favourite- chilli chicken noodles - only for them to arrive without any chilli and very bland. In fairness the waitress was insistent on taking them back when he said they weren't great and a fresh plate arrived, spicy as hell but clearly chilli powder was used- overpowering and not the fresh chilli he was used to. The waitress mentioned on collecting the plates that they were returning to the orginal dish soon- meaning the dish had been changed but still described the same on the menu. Very dissapointing - despite the friendly service three strikes and you're out I'm afraid!

This has become my favourite Friday night place to eat and drink. The special offers are great value with all mains €10. There is always music on early on, though one of the acts they regularly use is hard on the ears! The service is second to none, with all the girls friendly and extremely helpful. I don't know what the place is like on other days, but the atmosphere on Fridays is always great. All in aall, a great friendly place with great value and excellent service. I would totally reco,mmend to check it out.
