Such a great evening. John our guide for the tour made it fun and informative all in one. The pizza was excellent and tasting the different beers was a pleasure. Pale ale stout. Who knew such a beer would taste so good. Myself and my hubby had planned for so long to do this. It didn't disappoint. Great service, great atmosphere and great feel to the place. Will be recommending to anyone who listens to me 🤣. See u all again soon !

Excellent food and craft beer
Oct 2021
Booked online which mentioned a time limit on dining which was good to know. All safety measures were adhered to so felt very at ease.

Wife and I had a pizza each (who knew black pudding worked so well as a topping?!), and a... few lovely beers.

Staff were very attentive and eager to help with any queries.

Definitely going to make this place a regular.

(Off license at the entrance also has a great selection of both their own and other local brews).

Really good tour
Oct 2021
On a whim we booked this tour and it was really great! Theres no bells and whistles like other tours but that didn't matter at all that will come with time. Our guide was very informative and also friendly and fun (English guy..didn't get his name).... We really enjoyed the couple of hours learning about how the company started and how it is growing from strength to strength. Really great to hear for an Irish company. Will definetly recommend to all my friends.

Great Pizza
Sep 2021 • Friends
Great service, and really nice venue!
Our First visit to Dublin after Covid, so felt amazing to be out of London! Pizza at Rascals was good, although my crust was quite burnt. Garlic bread starter was the best part of the meal! Great place for group of friends who want a relaxed meal out!

Surprise service charges
Sep 2021 • Business
Booked table for an after work thing. Everything is fine food and drink wise but the 10% service charge ruined it. The Top of the menu says there's a service charge for tables of 6 or more but the booking form doesn't, so you're caught and basically trapped into it. At least thats how I feel. Are your staff under paid? Is this America? What's the story here to sneak this in as a surprise FU to your customers? Ah well. I vote with my feet so just won't go again which is a shame but there's always other places to go that simply don't do this.

Hi there. A 10% service charge for groups is not uncommon in restaurants and, as you've mentioned, it is clearly stated on our menus. This is passed on to staff - they are definitely not underpaid. It isn't a "surprise FU" to customers and to claim such a thing is completely unwarranted.

Great pizza
Aug 2021 • Couples
Visited mid week. Centre of town was very quiet but there was a lot of people seated outside when we arrived. Be eight indoors. We opted for a pizza each and sampled a few of their special tap beers. Very friendly staff, good service and Health guidelines well followed.
We first visited last year and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely pizza, not so nice beer
Jul 2021
Really nice staff, despite erroneously booked indoor, we were offered a place outside. Lovely pizza, I'm afraid I'm not a fan of craft beer and despite tasting 4 of them, I can't say I enjoyed any. This was the case of places like the porterhouse until they introduced some mainstream brands: I understand this is a brewery but I would have given 5 star if I was given the possibility to chose a different known beer

Thanks for the positive feedback on the food and the service. Regarding the beer comments, we'd never assume that everybody is going to love our beer all of the time. We know some people prefer different styles and strengths. Nonetheless, just last week our Happy Days session pale ale and Yankee White IPA scooped gold awards at the 2021 World Beer Awards for Best In Country in their respective styles. (It was the second consecutive gold for Happy Days, while Yankee improved on its bronze award from 2020.) The whole point of the restaurant in the brewery is to showcase and promote our beer; having mainstream brands would really defeat the purpose. It would be like visiting a small independent French vineyard and complaining because they didn't have any Blue Nun on offer.

Amazing time. Unreal pizza. 9.5/10 for the pizza alone. John who served was just dead sound. Great vibes and a great way to spend hangover Sunday. Went to stillgarden afterwards and had a great time there too
