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 at this pub are top notch. The food was delicious, but it’s a standout because of the staff. A jewel in South Dublin.

Great vibe to the place, and the waitresses were so friendly as well as super effective. Food was excellent, and what a treat to get great food at such fine prices.

Lincoln Inn was the first place we ate when we arrived in Ireland for dinner. We just wanted to find something close to our hotel as we were tired from our flight, but we found a great little pub. The food was great, we loved...the atmosphere, and the staff were so friendly. We liked it so much that we ate there twice more during our few days in Dublin. We highly recommend the Lincoln Inn.More

Very few places in Dublin that serve food offer such good value for money. I had the vegetarian lasagne, which was delicious. I really liked the old pub atmosphere and I found the staff to be very friendly. I will definitely be back!

We’ve been to Lincoln Inn three times in 2 years and live in the US. The food, staff, and service are outstanding. I couldn’t recommend this establishment more, please visit if you can.

We had such a wonderful lunch at the beginning of our tour (celeriac soup, seafood chowder, open smoked salmon sandwich, great pints) and such great service that on our last day in Ireland we had to come back and Lincoln's Inn topped the first experience...with superior service during a mad rush (thanks, Nieve!!) and another delicious meal (leek and potato soup, the best Irish stew ever, and more lovely pints). This will be our mandatory stop every visit to Dublin.More

The staff are all very friendly and chatty.it was very busy and loud as you would expect for a weekend night. The toilets are down a very steep set of thin stairs, only enough room for single file and make sure you hold onto the...bannisters.there is a wheelchair accessible toilet upstairs if you can't do stairs. As there was a gang of us we got a platter which consisted of chips, chicken wings, sausages, various spring roll type things, some suitable for vegetarians,it cost €40.More

Dropped in for late lunch after visiting the museums. Had a fabulous traditional Irish pub lunch. The owner was attentive, added colour to our experience with his stories and the engaging and friendly staff. I had Irish stew and soda bread, and my wife had...Guinness pie. Both were excellent and the prices were better than around Temple. Best of all they had Guinness Zero on tap - best alcohol free beer I’ve ever had and first on draft ever!More
