Went to see the Munster match here and get some food, I got the seafood special which was divine, unfortunately the portions were very small, when they said a side of chunky chips, that means six! My girlfriend got the breaded fish which she said was pretty horrible as it was way too oily. I would put this place down as hit and miss. wont be returning

Stuck for somewhere to spend an hour after work before another engagement on a Monday night near where I live and decided to visit the Merchant for a bite to eat and a couple of pints. It was fairly busy and a good few people were eating. I chose a steak sandwich with chips and a pint of carlsberg. When it arrived I was a little disappointed it wasnt served with cheese as standard as I hadn't thought to ask. Still it was good and hit the spot on that occasion. I do like coming here for the odd pint as its very close to where I live and there are a number of old fashioned pubs in the area to choose from. I will be back, I am sure.

Well went in here for a quick lunch last friday...where to begin..hmm For a start we sat at the bar and the first thing myself and my business partner noticed was a swarm of what looked like fruit flys swarming around the beer taps....oh dear! We asked the manager could we move to a table awy from the problem and were met with a disgruntled look and just a sweep of his hand to the empty restaurant behind us...a sign of things to come? I ordered the roast beef dinner and my partner the special of shepards pie. After a suspiciously short time waiting we were served by a disgruntled waitress who didnt even offer us a refill on our glasses of water. I can only describe my roast beef as swimming in water and totally flavourless. The so called shepards pie was made from BEEF!!! and my coeliac partner was uncomfortable for the rest of the day, despite being assured there was no gluten in the dish. So not only is the food bad but they are more than happy to endanger the health of their customers to sell some food.My advice hire a professional chef that can cook, and some competant friendly staff and start from scratch...100% fail

I had been advised to eat here by several friends down through the years so I eventually took the plunge. The place was very busy with tourists and locals alike. The staff were very frinedly and service was prompt. The portions were very generous by I cannot sat the same about the quality. The homemade onion rings that I ordered were obviously frozen. The southern fried chicken had a soft damp breaded non crispy coating that had a weird spice flavour that I still dont know what it was. Wont be back

Have been here for lunch many times as it used to be close to our other branch. Good chicken curry or bacon and cabbage not often seen on menus anymore (think it's for the American tourists) but the locals like it too busy at lunch time but good food and good value

We often go here for lunch as it's close to work. The food is generally good and the portions are quite big but at times not very hot. The waiting staff could be a bit friendlier. The bar staff are generally very nice and it's great value so that's why we return.
