Thought we d give this pub a second chance last visit was dreadful. However nothing has changed. Bar man was extremely unfriendly rude couldn't even speak just banged drinks down and grunted price. All staff seemed miserable. If you visit other pubs in general area...you are welcomed with a smile and told to sit down we ll send drinks over... try other pubs in area......More

Very happy for being graciously and professionally accommodated for a very last minute request for a large group. Great food, very friendly staff at all times and great value, nice one.

Paper menus being reused, no masks on any of the staff apart from the odd wearing it as a neck warmer. No wiping down the tables inside. Absolute kip.

As said here by others quite a few staff not wearing masks at all, tables are well spread out and felt safe other than the staff not wearing masks, the food was very good and we enjoyed our few drinks in a friendly atmosphere.

Very uneasy after visit. Staff wearing masks under nose and very young waitress with no mask at all bringing meals to tables. Won't be back.

Greeted at the door by a man with no mask. He did ask for our Covid pass & ID. Shown to our table which are well spread out. Bar staff not wearing masks and also attending tables and walking around with no masks. Lounge staff...mostle wearing masks under their nose or chin. We were given paper menus and when we ordered they were passed on to other customers. We only had a starter as we didnt feel safe. We have often eaten here before but wont be back.More

The pub is currently closed due to Covid restrictions however two food wagons are now operating takeaway food coffee and ice creams in the car park and doing a great business. Great coffee if you want a treat in D15

Came here with my husband for a meal. Couldn't see any members of staff wearing masks . A young male took out drinks order I asked could we order food and he said he would get someone awhile passed and a lady took our orders...she too wasn't wearing a mask . Food came out .I ordered the steak . Steak was ok but mushrooms and onions were swimming in oil . The lady that brought our food out to us shouted from the counter how was your food .. I was shocked by the way she asked us . Many people were in and out to the betting shop beside the restaurant and nobody had masks on .I didnt feel comfortable and was glad to leave.. I wouldn't visit again .More

My friend and I had booked weeks in advance as we had travelled from Cork and were celebrating. We got a 25 minute taxi from our hotel. We arrived and said we have a reservation and the manager at the door said “your not going...in” we were confused and thought he was making a joke. He proceeded to tell me my friend was “ intoxicated” because she tripped at the door which I completely understand if she was but she was in no way even tipsy. This was frustrating I tried to compromise asking can we take our reservation and buy a meal even with no alcohol as everywhere was booked out and he said no with an attitude. I asked for his name multiple times and he was hesitant and mumbling each time. We were disgusted by the manager and the way we were treated we then had nowhere to eat and missed out on one of our nights in Dublin completely ruined our experience.More

yes they do have an accessible toilet on the ground floor... its very spacious and is not used like other establishments as a broom cupboard...its not kept locked either so there's no asking for a key :)
