Stay away from this pub. Was in with a group of friends and we were told to leave for absolutely no reason. Very rude owner who was on a power trip. Spend your money somewhere else.

Not much to say. Great music and a good dance night. Prices are reasonable. There is nothing that stands out. Just another pub.

The field is a tiny little pub smack in the middle of the town, I love this place for lunch or a bit of music on the night out.

We had a blast at The Field. The evening started with dinner upstairs. We had a mix of pub food, and everyone was happy. Was the food memorable? No, but only because the owner came up and talked to us so long. We discovered that his friend has a pub in a city we frequent, we shared info and ...... More

Full of atmosphere and staff pleasant. Live music , most definitely worth a visit for a drink. Small venue so probably not an all night location.

Lipstick on glass! Long wait for cold food. Expensive. Certainly won't be returning. Don't recommend.

We stopped, for a quick lunch. Soup and sandwich were very good. Service was decent. Decor/atmosphere are what tourists (like ourselves) would expect... very colloquial and fun.

Unfortunately we were too late for food, but when we walked in there was the kind of Irish music I was hoping to hear. We r from Newfoundland so we know good Irish music. Several guests in the audience from Kilkenny also sang. It was fabulous. And as we were in Kilkenny that's the beer we ordered and it to... More

Visited the Field last Saturday night. It is small but very nice people here. It was late night so we didn't have food. We did sample their drink, and it is reasonably. There was a large crowd of us, (20). There was no problem either entering the premises or getting a drink. The bar staff were sound and the door... More
