We came to avoid the crowds on St Paddy's day and what a surprise! The food was excellent, as were the pinks. The staff is friendly and attentive. We had a great St. Paddy's day in with the help of Tom Sheridans

My wife and I visited Sherdians this afternoon for lunch. We decided to sit outside with our dog (under full control) as another guest had two dogs on leashes, the outdoor area was obviously dog friendly. I had a firm grip on my dog's collar...while my grandasughter was on her with his lead. As I approached the seating area another dog on a nearby table caused a disruption and spilled over his owners beer and caused a glass to break. However, while my dog was visibly under control a male member of staff continually admonioshed us for not having a lead, even though our dog was totally restrained by the collar while I waited a matter of seconds for the lead. We were clearly blamed for the others dogs behaviour despite full control over our dog. The member of staff refused to listen to what we wittnessed even though I assured him and he could see our dog was at my side and fully under my control. Her was arrogant and rude. Please listen to customers, behave equitably rather than rushing to judgement and be rational rather than rude. To that member of staff: you totally ruined a looked forward to outdoor lunch on the first really beautiful day this year. You should ponder on your behaviour and be ashamed of yourself to so irrationally spoil our day. Please also note that you have brought an end of the many family gatherings and meals we have had a Sherdians. Kevin HeffernanMore

Three of us made a booking mid-week and we were all very happy with our respective selections. We had a lovely cosy corner. very comfortable and we were in our own little bubble.

Very good service, a short wait for a table and our COVID certs were carefully checked. Masks were worn by all staff and we had a nice table upstairs, tucked away from the circulation routes. The food was freshly prepared, with a good choice of...offers, and a wide range of drinks (including Guinness Zero, which I didn't know existed and is pretty good, by the way!). Service was excellent, something which always adds extra enjoyment and makes for a memorable dinner.More

Amazing food and great pints coupled with absolutely unique and astoundingly Irish (in the best way) atmosphere. Service did seem to lean towards the slower side although our table was quite out of the way of general waiting routes with table service and it was...a busy night so I did not mind at all. 9.7/10 I would recommend any couple to visit this venue!More

What a find and just down the road from our hotel. This is a grand pub / restaurant that from the moment we got there we knew we were in for a good night. The queues at the door were a great sign. Service was...exceptional and the staff were so helpful . The food was exceptional. It arrived looking great and the taste was excellent. We all had to have three courses.More
