Staff were very unhelpful. We arrived at 11.30 for breakfast and were shown to a booth. It had a dirty fork and knife that the waitress ignored. She gave us menus without saying a word and then walked off. She came back a few minutes later and took our order. She was incredibly unfriendly at all times. She brought us our coffees and juice and just placed them in front of us and walked off. The milk jug had a small bit of milk, we just needed to call her over to bring us a fresh jug. This seemed to irritate her. We received our food off her with a horrible atmosphere, She was in no way friendly or welcoming and even though your food was very tasty we won't ever be visiting the anvil again.

I had not visited in about 6 months but was delighted my trip. Friendly welcome, lovely atmosphere and delicious food. The addition of the High Protein menu is super! Tuna steak was amazing, Hoisin duck very tasty without being too fatty and the sneaky slice of After Eight cheesecake was incredible! Will be back a lot sooner this time!

I brought a friend here for lunch. She had not been to The Anvil before, was very impressed and intends visiting it again soon. Food and service were excellent as usual.

This is one of my favourite restaurants and my visit today did not disappoint. The food and service were excellent as usual. It is a pity they do not do a set lunch menu. I feel the Early Bird and set Dinner Menu are great value but the lunch can work out quite expensive in comparison.

My daughter and I could not wait to try the tapas here, and I have to say we were not disappointed. We had spicy wings, blue cheese dip, crab cakes, bread and dips, pilpil prawns, tempura prawns, wedges aioli, lemon sole and for dessert apple crumble and baked alaska. We washed this all down with the lovely Santa Digna Rose. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tapas, service was excellent and we would definitely return to try some others which are on the menu.

Beautiful food and presented really well but is a little bit pricey compared to other places of the same quality and service! I would still eat here again but on payday or a special occasion!

Myself and my wife went to The Anvil Bistro to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very impressed. For starters my wife had lemon sole tempura and I had the terrine of Clonakilty black and white pudding both of which were delicious. We both had 28 day aged striploin steak for mains and again we were delighted. It was served on a substantial bed of champ and came with peppercorn sauce and beautiful mushrooms. My one small gripe is that my steak was not quite as rare as a rare steak should be, but this appears to be the norm in Irish restaurants. For dessert I had banoffee pie and my wife had apple pie which were very nice. The set dinner menu costs €29.95 for three courses which is good value for the quality of food on offer especially with no supplement for steak. The staff were very friendly and efficient and seemed to genuinely want you to enjoy your time in the restaurant. All in all a very pleasant experience and we will definitely be returning.

A group of us dined for lunch, as usuall the site was busy and noisy. we all went for the Burger which was good and well cooked as for the chips well lests just say they left alot to be desired. The staff seemed under scarce on the visit and when we all ordered tea after we were informed there were no biscuits .... ah well

10 of us from work went for lunch in the Anvil last Friday. The menu is great, lots of really mouthwatering dishes to choose from and the wine list is moderatly priced too which is always a bonus! We pre ordered our food by email due to time pressure so when we arrived, we sat down and the food arrived within minutes. Service is great and the food was delicious. I had the Anvil salad and while it was really tasty there wasn't a lot of it on the plate. The curry, paninis and chicken wings all got rave reviews and I have to admit I had a mild case of food envy. The coffee was great, good quality and a decent sized cup! The only niggle is the noise. I found it quite off putting that I couldn't hear anyone that wasn't sitting beside me. The ceilings are high and the accoustics are terrible, they might have to look at putting in some rugs or maybe some insulation because we all came out with ringing in our ears. All in all though, good food, not too pricey and great staff!

Four of us meet here for lunch on good friday it was only open until 5 so it was very busy as most places around was closed. We were seated at a nice quiet table by the window which was great as there was a party down the end which were very noisy. I had the goats cheese tart which was really good so fresh and you could taste it was home cooked one of the best I have had. The rest had the carbonara which came out in a huge bowl very generous portion the other two had chicken wraps they were so good and came with chips and salad. The only downfall was we were waiting ages to get our bill and then even longer for our change I think they were too busy trying to close up.
