A great local pub with comfortable seating, lively crowd and friendly waiting staff. The pub backs onto the Botanic Gardens so we'd recommend you take a stroll and then go for a (perfect) pint.

FACILITIES

Take away service Luscious Dublin Bay prawns, succulent oysters, melt in the mouth mussels, mouth-watering mackerel…just some of the delicious seafood you’ll find on menus around Ireland.

Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff.

Went with boyfriend for a meal here today.. We ordered 2 course meal. I had potatoe and leek soup and medium rare steak, my boyfriend had chicken wings and roast beef with mash and veg.. My soup tasted like a cuppa soup and very watery taste. . When pointed out i got another cuppa soup?!. Chicken wings were fine.. My steak was well done when I mentioned it to waitress she claimed it was medium rare.. I lived in Canada for years and I know medium rare. My boyfriends veg and meat were dry.. I left hungry and upset.. Would not recommend this establishment for food!!!!!

I've eaten/drank here hundreds of times, it's my local so it's handy to get to. The food is reasonable, on Sundays it's the carvery so you go up choose the food and move along a queue - it's fresh, constantly replenished (unlike some carveries) and is a really affordable Sunday dinner. The off the menu food is even better, lovely pizza and meat dishes. Nothing extravagant, just your typical pub grub but if you're visiting the Botanic Gardens I'd suggest coming around the corner to this pub for your food, much more affordable!

Have eaten here plenty of times and although I preferred the old menu, the food is generally good. This was a Saturday afternoon visit on a sunny day and the place was busy with a communion party. I had fish and chips and my dinner date had the burger. All very tasty, the fish was really soft and fresh. food wise the usual high standard.

Visited here after having been to the Botanic . Great choice of food and no real delay in the Carvery, and what we got was a decent sized portion which was excellent value. The staff were excellent and one chapwas on top of his game and seemed to know everyone by name. He even asked us if everything was ok and gave us complimentary coffee To conclude great atmosphere and value and I will visit again

Staff in here were very helpful to us as my sister can be a tad on the demanding side. They were super helpful, friendly and efficient. We had a Saturday carvery which looked amazing but was a little bit greasy for me. Had beef & black bean sauce and didn't eat it. The chips were nice but the meat was fatty and tough. Niec set up & lovely staff though.

Arrived at 230 to a neighbours funeral meal. A very friendly chef went through the whole menu with me. I chose a beef and guinness pie which I really enjoyed. I had a look at the evening menu which was very good indeed. I will return again.

Usually visit here when the carvery is on but they also do an evening menu as well. It gets quite busy for lunches. There is a very good selection for the carvery and the portions are usually quite good. Food wise I would consider it good hearty food, the gravy is good & they love there mushy peas! Not a bad spot for a bite.

Went here with my parents and sister on a Sunday afternoon for carvery. Similarly to other pub grub scenarios, they offer half plates which doesn't mean half price but still a generous portion. The service was quick without being abrupt and the cashier even offered to carry my full tray to the table for me. I would recommend this pub for Sunday lunches - delicious with a wide and varied menu.

Visited here on a Friday evening. Had a lovely meal. They offer a free beer, mineral or glass of wine with each main course bought I was with my husband and brother in law and they didnt want the beer/wine. I had 3 glasses of Pinot Grigio which were very nice. They were free because we bought 3 main courses. The 3 main courses were very nice. Would recomment this pub for grub.

We stopped in here on the June Bank Holiday Monday for something to eat. We each had a half portion from the carvery. The food was excellent as usual. The half portion was excellent value for a substantial plate of food. The pub was clean with good space to get a table and eat in comfort. I would definitley recommend the carvery here and look forward to stopping in there again.
