Great pub, good food and friendly staff. Lovely beer garden at the back.

I went with a group of about 10 work friends to celebrate a birthday. We were all spending a lot of money, but at one point the vodka and soda that I received had a very strong taste of gin. I sent it back immediately and the waitress returned 5minutes later with the same drink telling my that the bartender had tasted it and he said it was fine. I sent it back again telling her that I was unhappy with the drink and the bartender came back WITH THE SAME DRINK telling me that he had 'fresh' tastebuds and I didn't know any better because I had been drinking. Since I was with my work friends I just said 'okay' but I am absolutely disgusted with him in particular (we also got food which was below average, but that didn't bother me until the bartender made me feel like an infant). He has left such a bad taste in my mouth (like his drinks), and all for the sake of making me a drink in a clean glass? I will not be going back.

Came in with friends for few pints and a grub. Loved the place. Food was top notch! Had the Blue cheese burger which was delicious. Great value for money, great pint and a lovely garden. Definitely be back!

Smyths is a great pub for drinking, great service and usually a good atmosphere. But sadly the food is of a very low standard. Its nearly always dried up, deep fried & re-fried. You can get an ok toasty but dont go in for anything more. Its such a pity, Ranelagh has about 5 pubs and none of them are any good at pub grub. Ranelagh has so many restaurants that you have to wait to get into that if some of the pubs upped their game they would do well on the overflow (or those tired of waiting for tables in Ranelagh).

Nice bar with very friendly staff and they certainly do the best toasted sandwich in Ranelagh, which comes with ample amounts of yummy salad. They also have a nice beer garden, if you are in the mood of inhaling copious amounts of smoke! My only gripe would be that its a bit dark during the day and there are too many televisions showing football, but that's my gripe about pretty much every pub in Dublin

Came here for lunch recently and as had been before with friends on a night out, was expecting good things! I had the special panini and as panini's it was nice. My friends had panini's also and all in all, pleasant experience but not out of this world!

Firstly, I want to say that I really like this place to have a drink in. It's cosy and the bar people are first class but I ate here last month and never will again. I wasn't too hungry so ordered chicken goujons and chilli dip. If you thought it was not difficult to deep fry chicken goujons and throw them on a plate you are wrong! They looked like chicken balls you'd get in a Chinese that someone had stood on to flatten. They were caked in oil which spread all over the plate and were totally cremated. The chicken was dark brown tasteless muck. They came accompanied by a sad little salad garnish. Do not order the goujons here.You will not be able to eat them.
