Very few people around, most of the country locked down. Staff are friendly and welcoming, good choice on the menu, prices are very reasonable.

Dropped in here for lunch recently, had no booking but we were easily accommodated. Good set up in terms of space between tables, staff were very helpful. We shared a platter between 2 which was exactly what we were looking for, a good mix of...nibbles if you're unsure of what you want. The pint of Guinness was solid and I would definitely return.More

Was in Kilkenny for a few days, didn’t have to book a table which was great as we just dropped in while spending the day in Kilkenny. We went for lunch. Food was so tasteful. Recommend the wings or chicken wrap. Food was fast and...so was the service. Staff extremely friendly, pints were great. Would definitely recommend. Great price too.More

Myself and my husband had lunch and dinner here today. We have been to Matt the Miller's for a few special occasions and today was no different from the rest. Staff are so helpful and friendly from the minute you get to the door and...the food is perfect and so much choice. The velvet strawberry cheesecake is worth coming back for. I highly recommend this fabulous place is well worth a visit xMore

We visited kilkenny for a day trip and rang to reserve a table for our family of five. Friendly staff, helpful & enthusiastic. My 11 year old had pizza and it was beautiful, obviously made from scratch, it was super fresh and tasty. My 18...year old had the ricotta which was also very enjoyable & tasty. Husband had steak which was ok only & l had fish & chips. Sadly l drew the short straw with the food as the fish & chips were not fresh but frozen & they were dry and tasteless so l was disappointed, left my fish and shared my sons pizza instead. We were offered dessert menus but declined ordering desserts as they were all priced just short of €8 each. A bowl of ice cream priced at €8 is excessive as is a brownie priced at just under €8. As a family of 5 we could not justify paying €40 for three bowls of ice cream and 2 brownies. The pricing is inconsistent with the quality of the grub. We wondered if the pricing is high because they are usually not reliant on returning trade and mostly service a tourist industry which turns over quickly. Overall as a family we were not that impressed with Matt the Millers, it is a little tired & smells a little stale, 3 dishes out of our five were nice, 2 were not.To end on a positive note the staff were nice lads who were attentive and friendly.More

We visited recently. The staff were so friendly and very helpful. We ordered steak and it was delicious. Located right in the centre of town by the river and would definitely recommend.

We visited them at lunch time, so for a quick bite, we ordered their Fish & Chips, Chicken Ceaser Salad and BBQ Chicken Wings. All very well cooked and tasty! Their fish batter style actually is my favourite way of fried fish. Just delicious 🤤...Very central and with great history to research about it. The service was very friendly and quick, and the place is following the main government’s guidelines to guarantee the safety of their clients and staff members.More

We came to this pub as a group of 7. Despite it being quite busy, the staff found room to seat all of us together. The staff were incredibly efficient and friendly chatting away to us! I got 2 starters - soup and brie. They...were both AMAZING. This pub is right in the middle of town and is defo worth the visit 👍More

Offering a walk in service. Good spot for some pub grub and a few drinks. Service is excellent and it's not too pricey!

I’m not sure, but when we were there they cleared all the tables & chairs where we were seated to make room for the band. I’d definitely get there to eat NLT 7p. It was one of the few places we went where it was an... More

Cathy is correct, we found it in Kilkenny which was about an hour and a half SW of Dublin. TOTALLY worth the drive!
