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.

We had another excellent meal in the Brock Inn. Grilled salmon was delicious. Such friendly staff. Great chats with host Linda about moving to the area. We will definitely be visiting regularly and have already recommended to friends. Thanks to all.

Our AirBnB host recommended this spot when we asked for a good local restaurant to have Irish food on our last night in Dublin, and this satisfied the request fully. A very busy place over dinner, we did have to wait about 20 minutes for...a table, but after the rush ended there were a lot of tables available, so consider going after 7 for no wait. There is an attached pub which didn't appear to serve food too. Although very tempted by ordering the corned beef, we settled on the 12oz sirloin steak, with mashed potatoes (with scallions) and mushrooms. It was very good, and a large enough portion that we shared it and were both full. Along with a pint of local beer it made a great final night in Dublin. Once our food was served our table was forgotten though, with really no checkup on our table afterward. We actually had to get up and ask for something after waiting for someone to come by.More

I went to the Brock Inn recently for the first time with a friend for lunch. We were seated and served by Anna. OMG... I have no words good enough. She greeted us warmily, gave us the specials and described them to us. I've never...seen such a hard worker. A table became vacant and she had it cleared and reset in a matter of minutes. We were checked on every few mins. The food arrived and it was plentiful, hot and fresh. I got the loin of pork and it was the best i've ever had. While we were eating we both siad we would love to take Anna home with us. She is the most efficient and friendly waiting staff member I have ever met. The bar was spotless and there was a lovely friendly, homely atmosphere. It was full for lunch but never felt like anyone else was on top of me. We were that impressed with the whole experience that we returned again today, the food was just as good again. We will also be back again next Tuesday. We rarely have the same day off so it was nice to have quality time with my friend with quality food and quality staff. When we returnd today Anna came straight up and greeted us as she remembered us. Anna is a credit to your comany. The other staff were also great and very attentive. Thank you to the Brock Inn. We will be back next week....and every time we get a day off together. 5 STARSMore

€120 spent on family meal, bang average, bland food, poor value for money, frustrating service Always make a point of providing feedback direct to the establishment before writing review, in this case the reply I received was similar to the dining experience, mediocre! Will not...return, avoid.More

We pre ordered a meal for takeaway a week in advance for a surprise birthday party, the staff took so long making the food that the party had already started before the food arrived. With covid measures we were meant to park in a waiting...area and ring to have our food brought out for us, but the staff wouldn't pick up the phone. After 3 or so calls we finally get through and they said they'll be right with us. 20 minutes later there's no sign of them so we ring again, again we have to call multiple times because they don't like picking up the phone. When they finally answer they maker up the flimsy excuse that they only put the food on after the person arrives as they've been "burned before", the statement that they gave is a lie as when we ordered from them last year we were waiting less than 5 minutes before our food got to us. It took 50 minutes to get our food. I couldn't recommend this place to anyone.More

I've visited the Brock many times over the years and to be honest today was the last straw. The service has gone to pot & it's not from the lack of staff let's be honest. I've tolerated this for a good while now but no...more. I arrived to find a small queue formed outside the door but yet plenty of seats available. When I did get seated, there was no contact tracing details been taken (or from anyone when I was there) nor was there any hand sanitiser on the tables outside. The customer immediately behind me had sat, eaten and left before I got served even though we both ordered at the same time. That being said the customer more than likely got a breakfast intended for someone else as it was out in less than 5 minutes. When you start to see people getting breakfast / service having arrived later it's fairly bad. Then when I made it known that I was waiting for breakfast, service came quick after that... but it's as clear as day to me that I was forgotten about. I quickly ate my food, paid and left. Whilst I was there, people were left waiting in the heat outside despite there being a good few available seats. It's not exactly hard to allocate one staff member to do these tasks nor is breakfast service exactly rocket science when most breakfast items can be prepped well in advance. Aside of the service issues, I'm not even sure where the Brock has got this reputation for good food as from what I've seen over the last number of years, it's fairly average with above average pricing for what's on offer. As I've said, today was the last straw and to be honest it probably will be the last time I'll consider the Brock for food.More

Myself and my husband have visited the Brock on many occasions and would consider ourselves regulars. So, It is with much disappointment that I have to say the quality of service has gone down considerably. We were left waiting 50 minutes after ordering a standard...breakfast without any food. We had to ask the servers multiple times if we were going to get our tea. We received only one portion of toast, which should have been two portions, as there was two of us. The toast arrived when the meal was over. There was no effort of an apology which was really disappointing. We were not the only customers to have this experience as we heard others complaining. We won’t be back.More

Visited this pub last Friday and very disappointed with quality of the food. Ordered a chicken burger which was pan fried and over cooked and dried up...chips greasy. My partner ordered beef burger which again was also dried up...wouldn't waste your money going here.
