Great location and nice premises. Staff aren't particularly great, it's very expensive and the gins had zero effect! The cold didn't help!

Have been here a couple of times for lunch, best bangers and mash I've ever had and very good service!

I brought a business client here for lunch, the dining room was almost empty, the staff very inattentive (took well over 10 minutes to garner sufficient attention to pay the bill), the room was cold, the food (we both had the steak) greasy and for rib eye, remarkably lacking in flavour. I was v disappointed and will not be back.

Nine of us dined here and the main comment was that there were no potatoes included with main course. These you had to order as a side and of course pay €3.50 extra for. The portions, when they came were big enough for 2 to share but unfortunately we did not know this before we ordered. We were told that they had no oysters, then we were asked if we wanted some, then they had to go and check if they actually had any and finally they did have some. The chicken was cooked beautifully and those who had the fish dish were very happy with them but the lady that ordered the burger was not impressed and did not eat it. They did offer her a replacement dish but she turned this down. Very little choice for desserts which were a let-down. I ordered creme brulee which I didn't think you could get wrong but it was served on a saucer type dish which meant there was far too much of the sugar coating and almost no creme. A couple of our party ordered the apple pie and said it was wonderful. The service was very slow but the venue was really lovely with an open fire (actually gas but very realistic). 2 course menu was €22.50 / 3 course €24.95 with both including a drink in the bar afterwards. We did enquire if we could have our drink with out meal but were told that this was not an option. All in all a nice meal but wouldn't be running back to try again. We did stay on for the music which was a guy on guitar who was good but crowd very sparse and floor service was very good.
