Lovely Irish pub excellent food and service. Well worth a visit even the non alcohol Guinness was worth a try if you are driving. Staying at the golf course down the road lovely place and food is good but give this pub a visit for...the real Irish experience.More

We keep coming back to Tim's because the food is so good, I got the fish and chips it was amazing as always, my wife got the gougons and chips with salad which she said was gorgeous. My kids had the pepperoni pizza which I...tried and it was so nice. The food is never ever a let down, the staff are so friendly all the time, even if John is a man united fan 🤣 all jokes aside Tim's is the place to go in thomastown for food and atmosphere and a lovely beer garden for the hot days. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again to all the staff for making our time there enjoyable.More

Can't praise this lovely place enough. Gorgeous food and excellent staff. Still has a feeling of safety for those of us still a tad nervous. The tables were well spaced. My husband had the rib eye and I had the Tim's special pizza (pulled pork...with onions and bourbon sauce). Both delicious. Pizza base was slightly overdone and the staff couldn't do enough even though it wasn't a big deal. Very friendly atmosphere. Wish I was local and could go more often! Very very highly recommended.More

As a family we have been dining out for Christmas for 6/7 years around Kilkenny. This evening we landed into Tim's Bar in Thomastown. I assure you we were not disappointed. Excellent food and drink presented by a friendly staff and all overseen by the...bubbly and enthusiastic John. The fare is top quality and is very good value for money. I would recommend Tim's to everyone. The lamb I ordered was the best I've ever eaten, cooked to perfection. I've paid more in other establishments and left disappointed. Not so this evening. 10/10.More
