About
Gertie Brownes in Custume Place (formally Victoria Place) has been a hostelry of some sort since the 10th or 11th centuries. Tongue’n’groove walls, pitch pine counters and genuine salvaged memorabilia all give this emporium a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Gertie’s customer base is comprised of a cross section of Athlonians supplemented by a busy river tourist trade in Summer. The staff strive to ensure that the customer is welcomed and made feel at home with a good drink properly presented. Adjacent to its other half Hatters Lane Bistro and other nearby eateries, Gerties is the ideal location to meet before or after a hearty meal and its private library room can cater to family, group or corporate occasions.

OK just left gurtie browns and I am fuming!!! This pub has changed staff no more or less than anywhere else in Athlone.. So tonight I went in for a cosy pint... Found a lovely high table stellted in.. WHEN! The waitress came over to clean the table... Caught with the corner of her eye women who were previously seated... Wanted a move.. These women seen us take the table and were reversing back to where they were... And the waitress goes sorry.. But those women had booked the table.. WTF!! Never in all the years I am drinking in gurties have I ever seen/heard of tables in bar being reserved... All I will say is that who ever is managing Gurties at the minute.... Should remember the people who supported them during covid!!!!!!! And have a word with their staff about customer service!!!!!

Staff are the venue.

Without good staff and a friendly welcome it doesn't matter what the place is .

This hit all the notes and it's nice to feel wanted inside and that your custom matters .especially so on the first visit.

Beautiful food and hospitality in a splendid venue .

Can't wait to return someday

What a cosy, homey, friendly spot. The gastro pub is situated in Athlone, very accessible and easy to find. Felt like I was entering a different era with the tasteful decor.
Most importantly though, the staff were all super friendly and very accommodating. Myself and my date weren’t wanting for anything as the much obliging staff checked in with us regularly. The food was gorgeous. I had the steak sandwich which was fantastic value by the way. We were seen too and treated in a lovely manner. Will definitely be back to this fine establishment.

Absolutely fantastic reception and the staff are the best, Peter the boss is simply the best and cannot compliment himself or his staff enough. Do not avoid this place if coming to Athlone as you will definitely miss out on a great experience. Ps make sure to ask for Gertie.

Me and my family recently had dinner in Gertie brownes pub and it was a great experience overall. My standout dish was the lemon curd tartlet that was just to die for and a sure favorite for any lemon lovers out there. The service was also brilliant and the atmosphere was lovely too. I would definitely recommend Gertie brownes to anyone wanting a casual dining experience with fantastic food.
