We went for a late Sunday lunch as my parents had read reviews and thought this was a chef led gastropub with good food. What we found was a menu of chicken in gloopy sauces, battered fish clearly straight from a freezer, burgers or very...expensive steaks. Food tasted artificial ie from a catering pack or greasy or both. The pub itself has a nice ambiance, friendly staff and an interesting gin selection. But I would not go for the food and would prefer to eat in places where a chef has actually cooked food and it is not a version of bad fast food at high prices .More

I was intending to visit Andy's (formerly Teach Aindí, Andy's House in Gaeilge) for a few years, ever since I stepped in to have a quick look. Obviously, the pandemic means that my original intention to dine there had to be postponed for a few...years. Until I visited this past weekend with my son on the way back from Tyrone. We were not disappointed. He ordered a burger, and I ordered chicken in a white-wine creamy sauce. Both were excellent in every respect. This was not simple pub food you can find elsewhere, everything in the menu was distinctive, had character, a little twist that made it unique. I highly recommend the Monaghan sauce, and the sautéed potatoes I had with my meal were, undoubtedly, the best I have ever had. Everything was simply delicious, tasty, complex and yet, down to earth. The portions were very generous too. There was a good selection of Monaghan craft beers, Brehon, which gave the meal an authentic flavour. The atmosphere was very cozy and the decoration in the pub is exquisite. Service was friendly and kind; Kevin, the manager, is a true gentleman, welcoming, well-mannered and with savoir faire. The only average thing about Andy's were the prices, which, if you take into account the equation quality vs. price, makes eating at Andy's a very convenient treat. Altogether, it was a most enjoyable experience, and most certainly, I will be going back to Monaghan to dine again, on my own or with the family.More

On a staycation in Monaghan and we booked our restaurants for evening meals weeks in advance because of Covid regulations which removes the spontaneity of just popping in to restaurants. Dinner in Andys was absolutely perfect. We had starters, mains and desserts! Our tenderloin steaks...were perfectly, as requested, and the staff were so nice. This restaurant isn’t that big and is a total gem in the heart of Monaghan town. Add it to your bucket list!More

Decent large potions of home cooked food in a nice seating, lovely waiting staff but perhaps a little busy and it was very hot since it had been a sunny day. The chicken wings and mushroom starter was a hit with my kids. The steaks...were overdone I was able to swop with my husband as his was medium (should have been rare and mine was well done) they sent a new steak and because of the nuisance sent a dessert platter which really was appreciated. The kids pizza was not great however the burger was fantastic I would return. Btw get the recommended white wine as it was fabulousMore

Just came upon this little spot by chance whilst walking ⁸ monaghan. Got a table no problem. When in Rome as they say we both had steaks in the steakhouse. Cooked to perfection and very tender. Will be on my hit list when I return...to monaghan againMore

Social distancing adhered to and a one way system in place. Great food thank you. Definitely recommend this place. Booking required at present.More
