Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited here on Tuesday lunch . Greeted by a lovely girl as soon as we walked trough the doors . Huge welcome and told to pick a table . Both ordered the seafood chowder. Delicious , creamy and chunky. It defeated myself as it was...a hearty portion . Service so friendly and lovely calm atmosphere. Highly recommend.More

A traditional pub which serves great a reasonable food and good beer. Two of us dropped in for an early dinner on Thursday. Service is very good. The menu has a lot going on with plenty of good choices. Dinner and drinks €40. Not bad...at all.More

We nearly missed this place, because on Google it said it was closed, so we walked past and to our surprise it was open, the lady said they know it says closed ,but they can't change it for some reason,seems very bizarre. However that does...not detract from what a lovely pub this is, from the minute we walked in, a nice warm welcome, our order was taken by a delightful young lady, we had breakfast,and a couple of pints of Guinness,it would be rude not to, everything was on point, only gutted we only got to visit on the day we were due to go home. However we will be back in Waterford,in the not to distance future, and our first port of call, will be this place.More

Me and my family stumbled across this pub whilst looking for a place to eat in Waterford. It was busy when we arrived but we managed to get a table thankfully. The food was fantastic. I ordered a seafood pie which was a generous size...and full of flavour. The sandwich and soup combo was also great. A decent sized portion of soup and a full sized toasty to go with it. The lady that served us was very friendly and was great with our two kids. She got them a couple of colouring books to keep them occupied while they waited. The pub is a traditional style pub and has a cosy feel to it. I'd happily return here if I'm ever in Waterford again.More

While in the city with a tour group, we had some free time to explore on our own and we happened upon this place. We stopped in for lunch and got a seat at the bar. We had excellent seafood chowder and fish & chips....Perfect service and atmosphere.More

We visited this establishment for lunch when on Waterford and were very disappointed overall. We come to this establishment when in Waterford for the quality of service and food we received. However, today we were given a dirty table, dirty cutlery and our food was...cold. It appeared the food was precooked and being heated and definitely not cooked fresh to order. I understand it's busy for lunch but if the food requires to be hot and fresh. We had to request clean cutlery and for our table to be cleaned. We ordered minerals which were flat and tasteless. They tasted watered down. My guess is when the ice was added water from the ice bucket was poured into the glass. Furthermore when I checked the receipt later in the day we were overcharged. We will not be returning.More

The gingerman is a lovely cosy old fashioned pub. We stopped here for a spot of lunch and were given a very warm welcome. A lovely menu with plenty of options. My daughter chose the Cajun chicken panini, which she thought was delicious. I chose...the BLT sandwich, which was a bad choice. I couldn’t eat it. Fatty streaky bacon was used, so it was a soggy mess! Crispy back bacon would have made all the difference. We will definitely visit again though.More
