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.

The staff were friendly enough and we were quickly shown to an available seating area upon arrival. We ordered a cocktail each, both carrying a €12 price tag. The drinks arrived promptly but mine (an old fashioned) was only partially-filled and my wife's (a passionfruit martini) had clearly been spilled when carrying it from the bar. The pool of fruit puree and vodka under the cocktail glass on the tray was pretty evident and all the more obvious given that the stem was left sticky. I reckon there was a good €2-worth of cocktail left on the tray! I'm being facetious. The point I'm making is that the spillage wasn't even acknowledged and that's poor. We left after one drink.

Cocktails are alright, but don't expect anything too crazy. For the price of the drinks, I was expecting at least some recommendations or a personal touch of the service, yet the service could not care less about us. The visit was alright, but I do not feel any temptation to come back here.

Came in for cocktails pre-dinner and so glad we found this join. The place as multiple bars and places to sit. It's really cool since you multiple types of places to sit, more intimate ones with comfy chairs and art, or saddle up to the bar for conversation. Enjoyed this spot to kick off the evening.

I booked an area on December 13th for my girlfriend's birthday. Unfortunately we had a very poor experience. I've contacted F&D bookings to request a refund in December but I still haven't heard back. Below is what happened. Area Set Up Early on the day I called into to drop off a cake & 3 bags of balloons. I offered to set the area up for that night but the team took the bags of balloons from me so I assumed that the area would be set up when we arrived. Upon arrival later that night the bags of balloons were handed to my girlfriend to set up herself. While not the end of the world, this wasn't a great experience. Cake I asked the staff to bring out the birthday cake. When it came time to sing happy birthday I asked a friend to ask the bar staff to temporarily turn down the music. My friend came back to me and said that the manager had refused this request. I had to argue with the manager to temporarily turn down the music even for 10 seconds while we sang happy birthday to my girlfriend. This was an extremely frustrating experience. Cutting of the cake About an hour after the presentation of the cake none of the staff came with a knife to cut the cake nor did they come with any cutlery & plates so that my guests could eat the cake. I asked the manager if they could sort this out but they informed me they couldn't cut the cake at the table and that I would have to bring the cake through the crowded floor to cut the cake at the bar. We would then need to bring plates of cut cake back across the crowded floor to the table. When I pointed out that the cake would get ruined going through the crowd it didn't seem to matter to the management. When the staff arrived with plates common sense prevailed and the cake was cut at the table. Both of the above areas (signing happy birthday & cutting of the cake) are rudimentary requests that were handled extremely poorly. Food As part of the booking I requested & paid for food for 15 people. The food didn't arrive. When I pointed this out to the manager he said that they didn't have food for us, in spite of specifically requesting this at the time of booking. He also pointed out that the 150 I paid was a pre-authorisation and that there wouldn't be an issue returning this to me. As we received no food that I have paid for (as well as extremely poor service for the event) Area As mentioned I booked (but didn't receive) food for 15 people. The area we received was 2/3 small tables. The area was too small and the floor was crowded to the point where we had to split up the party as all of the guests didn't fit in the are we received. Some were at a table by the front door while we were down at the back. The area we received was too small to accommodate the original booking. There were numerous failures from the food , to the size of the area, to the cutting of the cake to the necessity of arguing with mgt to temporarly lower the music to sing happy birthday. I'm sure you can agree that virtually nothing of what is a straight forward booking request was accommodated on the night.

I booked a table and ordered finger food for 15 people in this place to celebrate my birthday. When I arrived no one came to me and I needed to find the table by myself, when I found it was three separate small tables with not enough room to everyone and they placed us in a very bad space. The music was very loud so we couldn’t talk without screaming. When the finger food came I was really embarrassed, they sent 4 small trays with starters that wouldn’t be enough for everyone, some guests couldn’t even try it, they charged me almost 200,00 euros for that “finger food”. Terrible experience, frustrating and embarrassing, first and last time in this place. They simply spoiled our night, my night. Don’t go to this place to celebrate a special date.

Ordered a pizza for €14 and when it came it was the size of my hand and looked like it came from a supermarket. Ridiculous. The cocktails were also very small for the price you pay. There are better food and drinks available for much less nearby, don’t bother.

The hostess was lovely, but this was an absolutely terrible experience. The pizza and chicken orders were an absolute joke, very small in size and honestly tasted woeful. The cocktails were overpriced. Very surprised, I went for a brunch deal prior to the pandemic (about august of 2019) and it was really good food wise. Not anymore sadly....

My friend and I went dining there and it was the worst experience that we ever had. First of all we asked the server if we can have any tea and coffee(instead of alcoholic drinks),and she said that they don't serve hot beverages,so we got 2 non-alcoholic mojitos,which were 6 euro at the end. 5 minutes after,we saw the server bringing coffee to another table. Second of all,the pizza that I got was terrible. It didn't even look like a pizza. It felt like everything was just thrown on the top and it was 14 euro (picture is attached on the bottom).I am very sorry,but 14 euro for this is shocking. The third thing is that there was no cutlery or tissues provided,which is a bit shocking for such a place. Overall,its the worst restaurant that I have ever attended.

Never ever book online with them. They charge you 10€ per person and they tell you they will use that money for your bill when you arrive but they dont and there is no refund. I paid my bill and still they charged me 30€ on my card. They didn’t answer my emails when I tried to get my refund. Plus they treat better other people! Dont go , there are way better places in Dublin. Like the Church or Candem. Or the shelbourne bar. Avoid this place if you dont want to lose money

The worst visit to a restaurant, the duty manager on the night of 12 March 23 was so bad at his job it was a joke, the waitress rude beyond belief, the bar tender was embarrassed at having to apologize for them, the pasta was cold, the table was filthy we had to ask for it to be cleaned before we dined and was asking too much by the looks we got because we asked, i would avoid this place at all costs, so many many much better places close by. i am only giving 1 star rating because there is no option for 0 stars. I thought the days of blatant homophobia where truly over #equality

Disappointing visit and wouldnt return. Food is very poor quality and very expensive. I would find it hard to believe that a chef produced it. Staff ok but they randomly decided to tell different tables that they had to finish up and leave in an hour. despite never been told that there was a time limit when booking. Service charge added to bill without warning too. Way better options around.

DO NOT BOOK FOR A PARTY/EVENT This venue absolutely ruined my daughter’s 21st Birthday celebration. We booked a party package for 40 people. The room we should have been in we didn’t get we were bumped to a room that was clearly not set up for us. We didn’t get the Prosecco on arrival, food was ok and our 40 cocktails that should have come out with the food we got at midnight once I complained. We were told we had the room for 3 hrs to ourselves but after that we could stay in the room after but others would be joining us. This would have been fine but didn’t happen! We were moved downstairs where there was no room so our friends started to leave. We were then moved back up to the top floor where a guy was walking around with my daughter’s 21st birthday cake as they gave it to a guy who was celebrating his 50th. Farrier & Drapper have agreed that evening was not professional! After 3 months of trying to get this issue sorted and the price of items that we didn’t receive refunded Farrier and Drapper have avoided contact.

We reserved a private area in advance for a family celebration. Farrier and Draper required a €10 per head deposit (to ensure you stock to your booking) We arrive at the appointed time, only to be told that “you can move into that room in about 30 minutes or so, when the the people currently in there leave. And they were totally unfazed. Couldn’t care less. Absolutely unacceptable. Do NOT give this place any money in advance on a promise they will reserve a private area for you (or perhaps on any promise)

I booked this bar for a hen party group of 33 people for cocktail making for a Saturday in July 2023. From start to finish this was a terrible experience. When I arrived at 3.15pm to say I was there for a cocktail making booking at 3.30pm the person behind the bar had no idea there was a booking and there didn't seem to be any manager on duty to discuss this with. I had reconfirmed the booking with the office the previous day and had email confirmation. After a few minutes of confusion I was sent to a room upstairs which was clearly not set up for cocktail making. No tables set up, not even any water available, no waitress or server in the room, balloons stuck on roof from a previous party. We had to move tables around ourselves to set up for the group. I had to ask three times for somebody to come into the room and serve us water and provide some glasses. After asking a couple of times, we finally had somebody come who took a simple drinks order (a couple of sparkling waters and two glasses of prosecco). We must have waited about 25 minutes for these drinks to arrive (we had to come out and follow up again with the people at the bar at least three times). Finally somebody arrived to set up the cocktail making well after 4pm. He told me that the area was not set up for such a big group and that we would have to do it in two groups (had not been flagged to me previously). We had booked the room from 3.30pm to 6.30pm. Before 6.30pm somebody arrived to tell us we needed to leave as they needed to set up for the next group. This is completely unsatisfactory, particularly given that our service began well after 3.30pm. I foolishly paid in full for the event including a service charge. When I complained about the service to the office the following week I was told that the people meant to be working at our event had not showed up to work that day. I was not offered a refund. I was offered a refund of the service charge only and was told that while they acknowledged that the service was terrible we did all receive our two cocktails and thus were not entitled to any refund for the cocktail making. After much back and forth over a period of two weeks I was also offered a €250 voucher for farrier and draper. In my opinion, we should have been offered at least a 50% refund based on the terrible experience. I gave this feedback to the lady in the office who told me that after speaking to the manager and the CFO they did not agree with me. I, or any of the other 32 people in attendance, would not recommend this place for an event. It was so disappointing and a terrible start to my friends hen party.

This looked a good place for drinks and a snack. The table was really rickety . cocktails were fine but white wine was war. Calamari and chips fr too salty to eat. My husband ordered pizza and was served chicken goujons. True they replace them . Overall not a place to go back to.
