Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff ill mannered and uninviting. The Blue Haven , just across the street, was far better hospitality, food and music. Dont waste your time and money.

We stopped off here for a drink and an early lunch,

We were extra early and food is available from 12, but we were offered soup or chowder. We both had Soup and a drink and it was served quickly and it was delicious.

The place is clean and the staff are very friendly.

We would return here again if we returned to the area.

Had a really lovely lunch including Mussels, Seafood Chowder, Scallops prawns and black pudding. The welcome was warm and very friendly, COVID checks were excellent with contacts and sanitizing. Spacing of tables in the bar area was very good.
This was a lovely experience and I would highly recommend a visit to this well run pub.

Recently some new staff have been taken on at the White House Pub.
And they are rude and ill mannered. The food has become quite fancy.
I never go there now.
There are plenty of better alternatives a few minutes walk away, for example The Head of the River. The staff there are always polite, and the menu contains simple meals, eg, fish and chips.

My fiancé and I had just spent the weekend in Cork city and decided to drive to Kinsale and have breakfast after checking out of our hotel. We wanted breakfast, and got to Kinsale around 11am. After roaming around to see what was available we came across The White House who were serving breakfast until 11.30am. Once in the door we had to sanitize our hands and give our details for contact tracing which is absolutely reasonable. The staff were wonderful, so polite. We ordered the full Irish breakfast each which came with tea/coffee, orange juice and toast. It was lovely, and came with black pudding which I don’t usually like but this was really nice. When clearing the plates away I ordered another coffee, and soon requested the bill. We noticed the extra coffee hadn’t been added to the bill which we pointed out as we felt bad when the staff were so pleasant. Turns out the extra coffee was a free refill which was a wonderful surprise! I nipped to the toilet just before leaving and noticed how incredibly clean this place is too. We left full and happy. Definitely recommend eating here and will definitely be back again. Thanks so much ladies!

Dear Susiejp82, Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted you enjoyed your breakfast with us and that we have a black pudding that you enjoy. Its also great to hear that you found our covid safety procedures and our cleanliness to be off a high standard. In these times we have taken great steps to ensure that we are doing as much as possible to protect our guests and our staff. I look forward to welcoming you again. Regards, David

I have just visited this establishment again. I went last year, had a great time with THREE other friends with MS.
Having just been again with my other half - one of the the three a year later - we were treat like alcoholics.
MS causes umpteen invisible disabilities, yet not the case.
The meal was not enjoyable at all.
To feel like drunken imposters, dimple burgers were not nice.
Never to return.

We visited here on a Monday evening early in April. We choose the pub rather than the restaurant. Excellent food, good choice on munu and really tasty. All of the staff were friendly and full of humour. Will go back again the next time we pass near Kinsale.

Seemed to be the most crowded spot in Kinsale. Live music was good covers and lots of people dancing. Quick bar service.

Had dinner here during a trip to kinsale, not great. Sole and scampi wasn’t very tasty. Fish was too thin and only tasted of breadcrumbs. Funky monk sandwich wasn’t great either. It could be our choices as the place was busy. Probably worst meal in kinsale.
