Went in last week for a drink and didn't know what to have so went up to the bar to have a look and decide. On the board behind the bar they had Caipirinha advertised for €5 on special so I decided I'd go for that and sat down. My friend ordered it for me but unfortunately when it came time to pay one of the very "cool" bar men went up and wiped it off the board and said "there are no cocktail specials tonight". Talk about false advertising. Really was it worth it to them to be so ignorant about it? Surely it's their fault if they forget to change pricing not mine. Won't be going back and will be spreading the word. Hope it was worth them saving €4.

They have stopped doing pies! Nooooo!! And they don't do them in their sister restaurant. Another good pie place in Dublin bites the dust. RIP

Love, love love the South William! Day or night this is always a great spot to go to, from the wine list, to the great pies, to the great music, there aren't many pubs as cool as this in Dublin in my opinion!

The south william is now operating as a cafe/bar during the day, which works really well with their new menu. I spent the afternoon there with a friend and it was really laid back. they've got lots of cakes and cupcakes from Lolly & cooks and a nice bar food menu. They had two soup options on saturday, mushroom or spicy chickpea. I went for the chickpea soup and it was really good. My friend tried the thai curry, which she liked (but it's a little bit unusual, served with noodles instead of rice). I love this place as a bar at night time, but think i'll be going back more often for coffee. the staff are so laid back and didn't rush us at all. Great music too!

Went here last Sunday evening for a light meal. They have a good selection of casseroles, quiches and salads and most meals are around ten euro. I ordered the ham and cheese quiche with side salad. I found the quiche overwhelmingly buttery but this might be to someone else's taste as my other half had no complaint. Service somewhat lax but as it is a bar-cum-restaurant the general consenus seems to be that you order at the bar. Overall not a bad culinary experience.

Popped in here on a Saturday afternoon for a glass of wine and some food. Ordered the chicken salad not expecting much but it was really lovely. Extremely filling with tasty accompaniments and plenty of bread. Very satisfying and on par with any of the delicious pies!

Dropped in recently as a friend recommended the pies. I had the beef shin and Guinness, which was excellent. A generous dollop of mash and carrot/parsnip (€1 per portion) finished it off nicely. I was full afterwards. I'd recommend the food here over other establishments down the street. Drinks aren't too pricey by Dublin standards - but hardly great value. The mojitos (€10) are excellent. You're expected to order food and drink at the bar but that's no great hardship. They had DJs from about 7pm on Sunday. The selection got better as the night went on.

Great pies, but the atmosphere and staff were a let down. There were not many customers there when we visited, but 3 staff stood at the bar looking at us for 5-10 minutes when we were obviously ready to order, and would not come over. I had to go to the bar to them to order the 4 pies, 4 sides and 4 drinks for our table. I would probably return for the pies, but won't be in any great rush.

This probably is the wrong place to post this as i have been in the south william on numerous occasions and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the pies. I was in there on saturday night the atmosphere was great and it was packed, my night took a turn for the worse when I visited the toilets the gents cubicle was blocked the water was off and I couldnt wash my hands. My girlfriend described the scene in the ladies with toilets overflowing, ive spoken to people who say its always happening due to poor plumbing/pipework? I actually felt like getting sick with the thought of it, luckily no health inspectors work at 12 o clock at night. I like the bar and the food but third world quality hygiene no thanks

I love this place. It's right in the middle of Dublin's cool Wegra district (WEst of GRAfton St), and one of Dublin's gems. There's a good atmosphere in the bar - it's laid back and relaxed, and seems as though there's a little community there. The food is top-notch. So far I've sampled four of the pies, and each one is delicious. I reccommend the venison and cranberry sauce pie - mouthwatering. Service is average. You have to go up to the bar to order - something I didn't realise at first. Despite that, the staff are friendly and chatty, and go out of their way to be helpful. It's a little pricey, at €9 per pie, but I consider going here a little luxury - and not one that you feel guilty about afterwards! Wholely reccommended, and I will be back again and again.

Good place to come for pies, though they are overpriced to me. Still its a nice enough place. Im not sure that I would come back here though. The atmosphere is not great and the staff seemed kinda bored to be there.

They do pies at night. They're between €7 and €10. If you're hunting for a pub that does nice food, this is a good spot. Cool bar, nice people, and tasty pies. You can't say no to that, can ya?

This is my new favourite lunch place! Excellent pies - you must try the chicken and leek. Perfect pastry with a really good green salad on the side. Service with a smile and even asked if the music was too loud! love it
