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.

Probably the best place in Cork to watch sport. If your match or sport of choice is being televised somewhere in the world this place is your best bet of getting it on. They have plenty of screens dotted around the downstairs and upstairs terrace...bar and the atmosphere has always been friendly and convivial every time I've been there. If you are going in a group of 3/4 or more it's best to book ahead for your own table but otherwise it's generally fine to walk in and find a space. The terrace seating and big screen in the back room is decent. I'd recommend the buffalo wings!More

If I was the owner of this place, I would be pissed. Imagine turning away customers because tables are booked in 4hours time. We would have spent a couple of hundred euros on food and drink over the next 7 hours while watching all the...rugby matches. But hey, your customers who are going to turn up at 4.45pm for their couple of pints while watching the Ireland match and then head home will be worth it. We were not the only group told tables all booked when looking to get a seat at 12.45pm... over 4 hours to the start of the rugby match.... laughable... found somewhere else to spend our money...More

Utter rubbish. Apathetic, pig ignorant staff who have the personalities of serial killers. If you want to be looked down on, disrespected and completely ignored then this is the place for you. Yeah. Maybe the management need to rethink their customer service approach because right...now, there is none. If you want your change thrown at you, you’ll love the place.More

Stopped by to watch some Bundesliga last weekend and had a great time. Really impressed with the set up and the variety of different leagues and sports being shown, which you don't find in a lot of bars. Would definitely recommend to sports lovers!

Had dinner and drinks last night with my friends and Rafael was our waiter. Everything was great but the service was defiantly the best part! His friendly and bubbly service had to be complemented. Thank you Rafael for the great night!

Attended here recently with my husband. Was told we had to eat or play pool in order to get a drink, considering this is no longer the case with covid-19 regulations we we're abit taken back. However, we had a two course meal each both...very tasty and then decided to go upstairs for pool and couple of more drinks. When our time on the pool table was up a male employee told us it was time to leave. After having two new drinks just brought to our table we were shocked that we were asked to leave. When my husband said we have just gotten and paid for two new drinks, the worker told us they can not facilitate somewhere for us to drink them and that he could give us plastic cups to take them with us. Considering it is probably not legal to stand drinking on a public street we told them to keep there plastic cups. If we wanted to drink from plastic cups we could have stayed at home. After spending 130 euro between dinner,drinks and pool I think it's disgraceful that customers are then asked to leave when they have full drinks in front of them. Maybe they should consider telling customers this at the door before they enter so they'll no beforehand.More

I loved going here before covid . But since they opened its set up for covid is bad. When my partner rang to book a table we weren't asked did we want to eat outside or inside .. we would of preferred outside but we...hadnt realised the outside was now for seating people aswell and you couldn't just go out there to have drinks before your time was up ... And if you smoke you can go out there but your confined to a small corner with one or 2 high stools and then you have to return to your seat.. When you arrive they take your temp which is grand. We were seated and were looked after with our order for food and drink more less straight away which was fab. When the food was brought down we weren't given any cutlery or napkins ... We waited for a staff member to pass and eventually got the attention of staff and got the cutlery + napkins after 10 minutes . The food wasn't great and usually it is I've had food here loads of times before covid and never a complaint ! But as soon as the food was gone the service went down hill just because we didn't have food Infront of us I'm the staff didn't know what tables they were serving. You can't move from your seat to go to the bar yourself you have to wait for someone to serve you .. when someone did eventually come over my partner asked for a pitcher and I asked for 2 cocktails and we were told no because we only had 20 minutes left on our table in the end we got one drink each and left won't be going back in a hurry.More

This is a great place to watch sport. There are tv’s everywhere you look and all different sports something for everyone. Only thing is the price of a pint is a bit expensive compared to other places in the city. Staff are very friendly.
