Love this place for food. This is probably my favourite place to eat when I am in Waterford. Simple delicious food and plenty of it. You won't come out hungry. I always find it hard to pick a dish as I want them all. What can I say about the chef. She alwAys has a word or two for you... More

Located just outside the city center, allowing for easy access to parking overnight, quite location, with mostly locals visiting. Staff is friendly, with food and drink available at affordable prices. Early closure hours.

We went to watch the Ireland V All Blacks in this venue only last week. It was marvellous. The pub was alive with rugby supporters and non supporters and a fabulous atmosphere was in the pub. The food is also excellent in this pub with traditional music also some nights.

I recently went here with a few people for dinner. I didn't know what I was expecting but the food was amazing! I had the chicken and it was really to die for! The bar had a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly!

Found this place through trip advisor so decided to check it out. Turned out to be well worth the time. It was also recommended by a local who told us that Jenny or Andre would look after us, and Jenny certainly did, bringing the chef out to talk to us. We had the roast chicken dinner and the bangers and... More

Had a fantastic meal of Irish beef and local beer. The bartender/waiter was great at suggestions, friendly, and competent. It was a quiet night and we enjoyed our first night in Ireland with dinner and a beer. Ambience of bar with wood, lighting, and layout was great too.

Popped in for lunch. A real Irish pub. The food was good, service friendly and helpful. Interior is quaint with booths to sit in. Good selection of local beers. Has a great atmosphere.
