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.

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.

23 of a hen party was booked in through hen.ie
From the starters to the main it was a disaster, I'd say they were hoping we'd all be drunk and wouldn't notice.
Starters cajun ceaster salad which consisted for 6 pieces of lettuce and 4 small pieces of plain chicken.
The mains was mostly fish & chips and mix of chicken/beef burgers .
The fish was left , the beef burgers weren't cooked pure red inside, the waiters didn't seem to understand why we weren't happy.
I found a deep fried feather ontop of my chips.
I would strongly avoid this establishment for food, waste of money!
We were also waited 30mins before our order was even taken we were acknowledged, felt valued or apperocaited. Clearly them being paid in advance had a huge effect on the over all experience
I left more hungry than when I entered and would of been happier with a chipper!
The fill in manager couldn't understand why we were unable happy even with the evidence and the waiter were all very young to be under as much pressure with a large group . Some of our party was forgotten about and left waiting 15 minutes for their food after everyone else recieved theirs. She had to tell 3 different waiters before it finally arrived.
Such a let down! When it's in a fantastic location, and a busy spot .

Umair is an absolute top class worker who went to all rounds to get us seated and served food we were dressed as cowboys and he was an Indian but that didn’t come between us as he treated us as his leaders would not want anyone else to serve us 10/10

A group of us ate here recently. The pub had a nice atmosphere but the staff were fairly miserable to be fair which was disappointing. Food was ok. Starters were by far better then the mains, most of us couldn't finish them.
