Having visited quite a lot of restaurants in Kilkenny city I can safely say this is the best mid-range restaurant. The setting itself is modern and welcoming and so to are the staff. The food was 5 star and has something for everyone on the menu. Although we didn't have any of the cocktails the menu seems wide and varied... More

We had the roast beef chefs special, and it was the best roast I have ever had. It was so tender and amazing flavor. I cannot not say enough good things about the food. The service was five stars. They were attentive, friendly, helpful and engaging. It is a quiet bar that I highly recommend.

Visited this restaurant last night for dinner. We both had the fajitas, one chicken and one beef and we were both very impressed. The restaurant/ bar is part of the Pembroke Hotel. I will definitely be back and will be recommending this restaurant to everyone. Can't wait to return and taste other things on the menu

Staying at The Pembroke we popped into Stathams for a quick drink and were very pleasantly surprised at how good the food wine and atmosphere were. Not something you always get in hotel bars.

Simple but beautifully cooked ingredients. I went here with my parents who are 2 chefs and we were really pleased with the quality food. If you're looking for a tasty bite that doesn't have overly complicated ingredients, this is a top spot!

This restaurant is attached to the Pembroke Hotel and I was expecting food which would reflect the star rating of the hotel. Sadly this was not the case - the restaurant menu is the same as the bar food menu of the hotel. Its fine as bar food but no more than that. It was freezing outside the evening we... More

Statham's is attached to the Pembroke Hotel, and I already rated them on that review. Oops, my bad. This is a nice, modern restaurant with a friendly, well-trained staff. We both had fish that was beautifully prepared. When we had breakfast the next morning (free for Pembroke Hotel guests), we had the same waiter and he remembered us and our... More

For casual dining, excellent service and really tasty food the newly revamped Statham's is a winner. Very central ,on a Fri evening the place was buzzing with hotel residents gathering for pre event drinks and smaller groups dotted around . The variety of seating type is a very individual touch with maximum privacy st a semi Circle table that could... More

Despite pretensions of chic, creative cuisine, a very ordinary restaurant with mediocre menu and food (dessert choices were brownies, ice cream and carrot cake) and subpar service.

We enjoyed the food and drink, however, some of the locals (2 or 4) kept looking at us at our table. Finally figured out this older couple wanted our table and since we weren't local gave us an uneasy feeling, although as I waited and tried to get a bill to finally leave and let them have it, I was...
