T.P. Smiths is a deceptive pub from the outside in that the cosy traditional facade houses an impressive open multi-level interior. Here you'll find a wide variety of large open as well as small intimate spaces in which to enjoy a quiet drink with the newspaper or a more lively night out with friends.

The LUAS (Red Line) picks up and drops off on our doorstep, providing quick and efficient access to other parts of the city as well as the south western suburbs. The impressive mosaic in the main bar adds to the atmosphere while our spiral copper staircase leads up to the second and third floors.

Whatever your taste buds require, you'll find something tasty to suit you at T.P. Smiths. Their extensive menu provides ample choice to suit all palates. They offer traditional pub grub including Fish & Chips or a succulent juicy steak as well as more contemporary fare such as 'Greek Style Salad' or their 'Symphony of Seafood'. They also offer a wide selection of made to order baguettes, hot pittas, paninis and wraps stuffed full of your favourite fillings.

Having been here a number of years ago for a party I was looking forward to having food here again. Unfortunately when my spring rolls arrived they were not crisp and upon cutting into them they were soggy and very "doughy" inside. Couple that with the fact they dizzled the sweet chilli sauce on the rolls and all over the plate rather than having it on the side so I could choose not much sauce I personally wanted (if any) I was not very happy. Fortunately my dining companion had order so chicken wings so I tried them and they were quite delicious so when the lovely bar woman came over (when she saw something was wrong) I asked could I change the spring rolls for the chicken wings and I was definitely not wrong to do so. They were really lovely. Had a nice kick and bite to them. While I won't be hurrying back soon I would recommend trying the chicken wings.

I used to eat here when I was younger and it was always lovely then one day I went with my boyfriend telling him how great it used to be. He got a chicken curry with rice and I got goujons. The goujons were very awquard to cut since they were in a basket but my boyfriends curry was nice. The waitress was very nice to us. Unfortunately, a week later I was on break from college and decided to go here again, I only had an hour and it was busier then other times. The waiter was too busy talking to the regulars then serving anybody and a couple came in a good while after me and got served only because they called him over. I waited 20 mins and realised I wasn't going to get any service so left and the waiter didn't even notice I had left. Wouldn't go again and it was such a nice place

Popped in with my partner for a bite to eat after shopping, had a pint and 2 courses each. I had vol a vent and he had brie parcels...starters were quite tasty, salad could have done with dressing. He then had the fish and i had the chicken wrap. Both were ok ...ish. Will probably be back, not for a special meal...just for pub grub. Nice place and friendly staff!

This is some of the worst food I've ever had! We went here to catch the end of the match and get a quick bite to eat. I had the bree parcels and my boyfriend had the soup which was leek and potato. The bree was ok but the soup tasted like instant powder soup that you add water too and it was very bland. My boyfriend had the carvery special which he said was ok but didn't eat very much of. I tried his mash potatoes and thought they were disgusting. I had a goats cheese salad and it was probably the worst saad I've had in my life! It consisted of chopped up iceberg, cucumber, tomato, raw onion and two slabs of goats chese cooked in garlic and the whole thing was smoothered in oil. I could hardly eat it, it was not a salad but something that was throw together with everything they use for garnish and goats cheese and lashings of oil thrown in on top. The Barman had approached us immediately and was attentive enough but the food was really awful.

DISGUSTING. Went here for a quick lunch with my daughter during a shopping trip in town. We had my 7 month old grandson with us so we asked for a high chair which was filthy when it arrived. We asked the waitress to clean it before we used it so she took it away and brought it back and advised us to clean it ourselves as they didn't have any disinfectant available. We used a baby wipe to clean it. That should have set the alarm bells ringing but we proceeded to order a tuna and cheese baked potato and a toasted ham, cheese and tuna sandwich. They arrived with no dressing, not a lettuce leaf, slice of tomato or dollop of coleslaw to accompany. The tuna was completely dry, the cheese was barely melted, in a word the food was "disgusting". I had to request a portion of butter and mayonaise just to make it edible. The door banged loudly every time someone came in or out and the entire experience was horrible. The staff were disinterested at best. Outside I stopped short of warning some people who were reading the menu on the window. NOT TO BE RECOMMENDED

As far as pub grub goes (which i am a fan of), similar to the previous review, it is not great at all at this particular pub. I had a meal here on Saturday and it was way too greesey!. I ordered potato skins and my partner ordered Lazangne, he enjoyed it but i deffinitly didn't. It is a great pub for after work drinks or sports, as i have been on a few occasions and enjoyed the athmosphere, but i won't be back for the food.

Went for the early bird last week and was very disappointed. The food seemed to have been sitting under the heat too long as there was skin on the gravy. The portions were very small and the food was definitely on low end standard of pub grub. Despite the reasonable price you still expect some decnt food. Have had lovely meals there in the past but I won't be returning after my recent experience.

Have been here before for food, but not in a long time. Decided to head here before heading to see a Movie and have to say I was very disappointed. First we were downstairs, but found out that the Ealry Bird Menu was being served upstairs so headed on up. I chose the Fish and Chips and my partner picked the Plain Steak Burger and Chips. We had to go up to the Bar to order our food, which I did not like. Food arrived quick enough and portion size was adequate, but nothing really to write home about. I tucked into my Fish (in Batter) and was immediately disappointed. The batter was soggy and the fish almost tasteless. Seemed as if it had been left on a hot-plate for far too long. The steak burger was good, but again nothing special. Both had Profiteroles which were served with Chocolate Sauce from a squeezy bottle, but they tasted ok. Guinness went stale after 10 minutes which I was not impressed with at all. Won't be back in a hurry.

Went for a late lunch yesterday, just had a toastie but the service was prompt, food was tasty and I thought it was good value too. All the food coming from the kitchen looked tasty so I think I might have to go back for dinner sometime! : )

We've eaten here a few times and always been happy with the food. But we had the all day breakfast which was lovely but a little bit small with only one rasher and sausage. Was still very nice anyway.

Myself and 4 colleagues from work were here for lunch recently and we were not impressed with the food. We found that the price of the food had shot up recently and we weren't getting any more value for our money. For example one of the girls asked if a dip came with the chicken goujons and was told no you would have to buy a dip separately for 1.50eur! It is standard in any bar that if you order a dish like this you get a dip with it, I have never heard of a bar that makes you pay for a dip with your meal if it is chicken goujons. One of the girls ordered the enchiladas and found cauliflower in it which we though was very strange. Our chips were undercooked and the club sandwich I had was not very hot when it eventually arrived. We all agreed we would not be going back there again.

Maybe I'm easy pleased but had cod goujons, chips and onion rings last saturday while watching the rugby. Very tasty. Piping hot and not too greasy. Don't mind paying before eating in some pubs. It's so you don't do a runner.

What's with charging for the food before it's been received and eaten? If fast food practices are being employed then so should their prices. This is the only pub I'm aware of that operates such a policy.
