Have not been here in a while (no particular reason) but was delighted to see a new menu, myself my wife and our two children (7 / 9 ) paid a visit on a Thursday evening 7pm. The new menu is larger than before and the choice is great. I went for the Sirloin Steak and was I pleased, it was tender done to my liking (medium rare) and came with home made onion rings and chips, my wife had the fillet of salmon which she said was done to perfection our children had two meals from the kids menu which I was informed came FREE with our main courses so for our Steak, fish and two kids meals we only paid €29, myself and my wife had a bottle of house wine between us which was €15 and we all walked home very happy indeed. Will definitely be making a return visit and would recommend it to anyone.

The speaker used to be a great place to eat. In a locality calling out for restaurants, if they wanted, they have a captured audience. The restaurant has changed hands 3 times in the last 2 years and the quality has deteriorated each time. The basic ingredients are not high quality. I paid 14€ for prawn salad which was completely smothered in sweet chilli sauce from a bottle, served with deep fried potatoes described as baby boiled. The lasagne portions are small and they serve a poor version of this classic dish. The fries are always served overcooked. I could go on... The waiting staff are lovely and friendly, however, I have given this establishment the benefit of the doubt once too often. Never again. Save your shillings and go elsewhere.

I have to say for a pub the food is delicious. They do the best chicken caesar salad I have ever had. The kids eat free weekdays making it very good value for families. And the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Once again i find it hard to fault this place for great food and fantastic value. Myself and my husband both had the Cajun surf and turf which was gorgeous. My only complaint was that my wedges were slightly over cooked. The staff were friendly, polite and very attentive. We'll be back again before too long.

Love the speaker, come here alot for food and drinks. Food is always very tasty but service can be a bit slack and waitress' not overly friendly! The only thing ive noticed lately is they seem to have a bit of a problem with flies in the pub! Not very appetising when your trying to eat!! Sort out the flies and the atmosphere would be much better!!

Good pub grub. We frequent during the week if late home from work or too lazy to cook. Food is good quality, would recommend the salads, paté, chicken goujons. Steaks and burgers are good too. The battered fish is always tasty and the lasagne is exceptional. sometimes the food can have a deep fried feel to it, all chips and wedges on the side. Wish they had kept the baked potatoes on the menu. Overall the speaker is good honest traditional food, you won't go far wrong. It won't set the world on fire but it is nice pub grub and the staff are friendly. Love tyhe bar men!! we eat here often

Great pub grub - go here about once every two months when I come up to stay with my cousin who lives over the road. Nothing to look at from outside but great food. Had a fab spagetti with mussels a lunchtime special, relaxed atmosphere- can bring the kids or leave them at home whichever you prefer. Looking forward to my next visit again!!!!

This place is really great. I'm from Firhouse but never thought of going here for food until I heard recommendations from friends. I'ts REALLY good value for money. I've had the chicken wings starter, the fajitas and a pizza. The fajitas were served with wedges and presentation was lovely. Pizza came with chips and 3 decent sized delicious dips. So perfect for a casual lunch or hangover fix!

Went here today withy partner and well well well wasn't it a surprise. The actual pub itself is well used and a bit rough around the edges. If you are simply looking for some tasty food and not worried about a grumpy waitress then come here. I had a chnese Chicken curry and i must say it was delicious. Came with rice and chips and was beautifully spiced. My partner had chicken wings and thought they were very nice also. I'll definately go back for a quick bite again.

A bit of a rough diamond this one. The pub is the pits but the food is really excellent. I have eaten here several times and have been really impressed every time. If you can look past the facade, the grumpy waitresses and the chewed up menus you will have a great meal that is very good value for money

Worst waitress award i feel goes to this place- i've eaten here a few times and always found the food to be really good and great value for money,they do pizza which pleases my teenage son, true the place needs a bit of a do up but they have totally re-done the toilets so thats a start, unfortunatly what the reviews say about the staff can be true, i was there 3days ago and the waitress that served us was fine but there was another one that looked at me with disdain when i asked for ice-cream for my niece and told me before i got a chance to say anything that she wasn't taken any more food orders, she then took my drink off the table before i'd finished it and glared at me as she went !! with staff like this they'll be out of customers soon enough and wont have to worry about doing place up.

This pub serves lovely food. The place isn't much to look at and really needs some updating, but the food makes up for this. Some dishes seem to be quite pricey but are worth the money. The smaller dishes like the wedges with dips and the soup are great value for money and are very tasty. The bar staff are excellent but sometimes the waitresses aren't too polite but that could be because it's always really busy - I've even seen the place packed out on a Tuesday night with diners. I live round the corner from this pub so hope to go there a lot more now!
