The epitome of "Rip off Republic". Passing through Dunshaughlin we decided to stop for a quick pub lunch. To say we got ripped off would be an understatement. We shared some garlic mushrooms to begin with which were adequate but nothing special (€6.50). I had a chicken kiev with bolied potato(€14.50). Although not stated on the menu I (wrongly) assumed vegetables would be included as it is in almost every other pub lunch. Not the case so I paid €14.50 for an overcooked chicken kiev and 2 small boiled potatoes. My partner had scampi and chips €17. At €17 euro scampi and chip should of gourmet standard. It was nowhere near it. To top off the extortion we were charged €10 for 2 Rock Shandys. I know this is the same no matter where you go but it's still outrageous. Our total bill came to €48. When receiving the bill I made my thoughts known to a manager who kindly offered to refund my drinks bill of €10. I appreciated the gesture but it didn't take away the feeling of being ripped off. Suffice it to say if you fancy paying through the nose for below par food then this is the place for you. I, for one, won't ever be back.
