Following the advice of our host, we go there for dinner. A great and warm place, with welcoming and friendly staff. The typical pub food is great and tasty. I recommend the Beef & Guinness Stew, the meat is meltingly good and the sauce is...delicious. The place is definitely worth of visit.More

A trip 2 years postponed due to covid… we gathered friends and family from all areas of the county and abroad to celebrate a birthday… we chose Matt the Millers to host our final night party… after being promised a private area (not honoured) no...sooner had I paid the bill for 20 people for food and drinks we were uprooted…. elderly relatives and all…. leaving us standing in one of the main areas of the pub…. Food was lovely hence the 2 stars but I was left so embarrassed and disappointed we had no choice but to leave….. there are much more hospitable places to visit than Matt the Millers as Kilkenny hospitality has been amazing up until that point….More

There were 10 of us visiting and they were so accommodating. Mentioned someone needing somewhere more accessible and the fella sprung into action sorting a table for us. The food was delish and the staff were lovely. I highly recommend this place 10/10

Fun and lively and excellent Guinness stew and bar bites. Service was great although we weren't used to the Irish way of not showing up with the check and rushing us out! ;)
