I have had breakfast here many occasions and it is always lovely, on this particular occasion we were on our way to Town but stopped in swords purely to have breakfast here. The food is great and not too pricey, BUT the staff are appalling. As a worker in the hospitality industry I'm shocked at the service in this place, we had a young waitress who never once smiled or so much as looked at us when she threw our food on the table. The man behind the bar who I'm guessing was a manager of some sort was even worse, he blatantly ignored anyone who went yo the bar, my partner went up to order food and another coffee and was blatantly ignored. He actually walked by him numerous occasions and my partner wasn't the only one he done this to!!! It's a shame as the food is lovely, well the breakfast anyway. I will NEVER return due to the shocking appalling service and they should really invest in some new staff we felt like criminals in the place just for asking for salt and pepper!!

Absolutely great Full Irish Breakfast for a tenner. I'm not sure if it's available all day but this was at about 1pm on a Saturday.

A friend and I had lunch in the Hawthorn this week - we were surprised to discover that apart from ourselves the place was empty. We had a lovely light lunch, I had bruschetta and it was really flavoursome. It was excellent value and the service was without fault.

I visit here every two weeks for lunch. The menu is the usual and the same as every other pub But the daily specials are very good and the reason I pop in. The food is good and fresh but it would be expensive if you were eating there every day. I will be back again and again.

Popped in for lunch today and I was pleasantly surprised. I got the Sweet and spicy chicken (large) with chips and salad and it could have fed an entire army. The chicken was fantastic and the chips were real. Great atmosphere, not too busy or packed just comfortable and not expensive at all. Well deffo pop back in for some lunch soon.

Great place to go and RELAX. Really like this place. I have been a few times now. The chicken wings are the best around. Usually have the steak for main and it is perfect. Have had a few dishes and here and cant complain about any of them. All excellent. The barman does a great Irish Coffey for desert. All the staff there are very friendly.

Pub Grub... No More. Grand for a bite at lunchtime in Swords.... Nothing Special. Staff very attentive to the table however.

Best Spaghetti Bolognese I have had! Lasagne was fabulous too! Real home cooked food and far better than the rest of the "pub grub" on offer in swords! Well worth a visit!

The steaks are fantastic and what I like is when your finished your meal you can stay at your table and enjoy a few drinks in a very nice pub atmosphere. Very reasonable price
