Visited this property yesterday for brunch. Wow what an excellent experience, the staff were friendly and very helpful. The menu comprehensive, food of the highest standard and service faultless. Most importantly the attention to pandemic protocol was robust but not at all intrusive. A must...experience venue for everybody Well done!More

Very poor food, ordered two steak sandwiches. Meat was so chewy, so messy, chips were cold and the toppings were only on one side and the !!takeaway!! didn't even come with tissues or cutlery. Quite disappointing.

Attempted to book a table for Bobby Byrne's this Saturday night. I rang Saturday evening last week to book a table, the man informed that there was times availables to book a table, however he was too busy to book me in and took my...name and phone number and advised they will call me back the following day to confirm booking. No one called me back so I rang again Sunday evening and spoke with a lady who said there were too busy to book me in and they would ring me back the next day. No one called me at all. Understand that they are busy but at least have the decency to ring me back! Won't be going there again!More

Have been here several times since they opened after lockdown. Staff are amazing, naturally chatty and friendly (in particular the lady with the glasses who has been there years, and also a newer young man with blonde hair). Food is fantastic, have tried something different...every time and always been impressed. Very comfortable to sit and relax, and also family friendly. A great spot if you don’t want to go into town but are up for some chill drinksMore

I visited with my husband and 2 children. A short walk from our hotel. Welcoming staff, lovely atmosphere,menu with plenty of choice for all. The food was cooked fresh and was amazing..wow!! Clean plates all round. Desserts were so good..I reccomend sharing the sundaes as...they are huge. Re Covid restrictions: this venue is large with booths well spaced out.. so no problem social distancing-masks are required when outside your booth but staff are so attentive you rarely move around.The restaurant is spotless and staff are very well informed. We all really enjoyed our experience in Bobby Byrnes and hope to be back.More
