Really disappointed with this place. We arrived at 1.00 expecting to have trouble getting a table (as I'd heard good things about Jack White's over the years) but it was fairly empty. I should have taken that as a sign! We were en-route to Wexford so just wanted a quick lunch so I ordered the Fish & Chips in a Budweiser batter. It was pretty bad. The fish inside was grey so obviously was days old and the chips were lukewarm and some of the worst I've every had. The side salad was the best bit but that's not saying much. The only reason I have given this any stars for food is because my husband enjoyed the Bangers & Mash. I just wish I'd chosen that. Next time we're in the area, we'll be driving right by. Sorry!

visited this pub last week, it was around 4.30pm so the restaurant was quiet but we were disappointed to say the least. Ordered garlic stuffed mushrooms to start , the 4 mushrooms were ok if a little overcooked but the salad was limp with even some yellow leaves on the plate, inedible to say the least! I pointed this out to our exceptionally polite waitress who said she would inform the chef. After about 40 mins our main courses arrived , my other half had the half roast chicken with vegetables and potatoes, , the chicken was fine but the reheated vegetables were tired and overcooked. I had the salmon salad, a tiny portion of tasty enough salmon with over cooked couscous, salad leaves, olives and quiet nice feta cheese.Luckily enough I had asked for the dressing on the side!We had a waffle and ice cream to share, the waffle was tasteless and bland and had seen fresher days, All in all a very disappointing experience and we will not be returning.

Had lunch here with my parents on Sunday 29th April, 2012. It was very busy when we arrived but the staff were excellent we were no time getting a table where a lovely waitress called Katie served us so efficiently while we were there. It was very busy but there was no delay in giving us menus or taking our order or serving us our lunch. The three course lunch was €15 and was such good value as it had an extensive choice from all courses. I had one of the nicest lasagnes I've ever had and one of our party had the steak which had a €2 supplement which was well worth it as it came on a sizzling hotplate with mushrooms and onions and would melt in your mouth it was so tender. My husband had curry which came with chips and rice. The desserts were really good I had Belgian waffle with honeycomb icecream, amazing!! I will definitely be visiting Jack Whites again for lunch and maybe will go back in the evening too. It stands out as being one of the nicest places I have eaten in recent times. Long may it continue and thank you Katie!!

Amazing food and place!!! Loved every penny of it!! Staff is excellent there. Unfortunately they spilled the glass of wine of my girlfriend's, but in the end they offered us free desert, coffee and a bottle of Moschato D' Asti!!! Definitely going back!!

Ate here on our way to kilmuckerage last week. In fairness its a popular place that most people stop for a bite in, so we did. The food was nice we had the specila dinner roast beef all the trimmings and it was lovely. At under 15euro each with a 7up sure you can't really go wrong. A pleasant place staff friendly enough for a busy pub. Would eat there again.

Had lunch here before and it was great so high hopes for breakfast. The staff etc are all very good but the breakfast was the worst ever. The rashers were so salty even the salt had gotten into the beans. The sausages looked great but once I tried them that was it, they had no meat content in them and no flavour at all. The pudding was not much better. Coffee and toast was the highlight!!

Stopped here Saturday morning for a breakfast after travelling up from Cork. It was 11.30, so we weren't sure if they were still serving breakfast or not but they were and there still seemed to be a few people coming in for same. We were served by a lovely girl, who was polite and mannerly, lovely to see. Got a beautiful, freshly cooked breakfast, which included 2 sausage, 2 rashers, egg, hash brown, beans, mushrooms & tomoatoes, unfortunately on the day they were out of puddings but it didn't make any difference and as i don't like eggs, they very kindly gave me an extra rasher, which was lovely and crisp and showed all the signs of being grilled rather than fried as there were no traces of oil on the plate. We also got a large pot of tea and a plate of toast & butter, all for €7.95 each, excellent value!

Jack Whites is always consistent for a quick home-cooked feed and very popular with our kids. The 3 course menu for €14.95 is superb value and hard to resist after a day at the beach. As always, the food and service were very good, but, for the second time recently, the mens toilets were in serious need of attention.

We dropped in for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Really fresh, proper fish and chips for just short of a tenner. Portions are very big and great service with a smile. They seem to do a great value three course for €15 too. If more places were like this we'd all be laughing.

We dined here on a Thursday evening about two months ago, and had the nice menu. The restaurant was full at that time but the staff were very attentive and helpful. The chicken dish was cooked to perfection. The starters were quite expensive but tasty. There was a really nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it.

Dropped in here for something to eat. I had the Gaelic steak - Lots of Mushroom & onion sauce & chips. Steak was hard and salad was going brown. Husband had Ham with parsley sauce. The meat was nice but the bolied potatoes could have done with some milk as they were very very dry. The kids had chicken goujons and chips - the chicken was lovely - that southern fried kind of batter - tasty. The meal was very resonably priced but wasn't great. Sorry...

Took a drive down to Wicklow on a Saturday afternoon and we stopped in here for a bite to eat, it's a big pub that's kind of uncomfortable by trying to be modern. The food, however I thought was pretty good, I had a steak burger, and it was great, really meaty, the pepper sauce had a little kick to it as well. The chicken curry looked very mild though, which I suppose is alright for pub grub. Cheap enough prices, not a bad place to stop in , but not very welcoming.
