I visited this pub on Easter Saturday evening for pre & after dinner drinks . We had several rounds each of which was exactly the same order . We had been served by a couple of different staff members but our last round was served...by the manager who proceeded to charge us more than any other round that evening. When We questioned him about the price he became very obnoxious & called me aggressive , which I firmly deny . I only queried the increase in the price , to which he replied that we had been under charged on all the other rounds . We had spent roughly €150 there that evening & I couldn’t believe his attitude. We paid the extra as we were enjoying the music but I really wish that I had told him to keep his drink as he absolutely ruined our night with his aggressive behaviour & I won’t be back there again to spend my hard earned cash in his bar !More

We visited this old lovely pub for a meal on our last night in Dublin. It was within ten minutes walk of our hotel in ballsbridge. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and they serve a lovely...non alcoholic estrella on draught which was fantastic for me. We enjoyed every moment and would whole heartedly recommend this establishment for food, drinks and brilliant atmosphere.More

My partner and I arrived in at 9pm to enquire if food being served, we were welcomed by the barman and the regular at the bar, to our delight, food on to 9.30pm! This little bar serves up amazing food and chilled atmosphere to relax...to. Highly recommend and will be backMore

We stopped for drinks and this place was a wonderful madhouse. People packed in like sardines, but the Guinness was cold and the music was loud. We really enjoyed the surroundings.

Attended the Leinster v Edinburgh game on a Friday evening. Managed to get a table in the pub and ate there prior to the game. This is hugely popular so gets very busy, because of this they operate a limited matchday menu. We had burgers...which were excellent. Staff were cheery and efficient. We returned after the game and the place was jumping. There was live music inside and a great atmosphere. Really busy but enjoyable.More

Came across this pub in a neighborhood near our hotel. Atmosphere couldn’t be better. Traditional Irish food. Irish tap beers along with the Guinness that is ever present

The bangers and mash deserve their own entire review. They were amazing. Burger was good too but nothing beats the bangers and mash. Life changing. Get them.
