We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary last weekend and instead of visiting the Central for dinner due to Covid19 level 5 we decided to avail of their take away and delivery service. We ordered essentially what we would have in the restaurant a 3 course meal...(with cocktails). All food (and drinks) were delivered bang on time and were excellent. Highly recommend the beef ribs and sticky toffee pudding. The Central has supported many local organisations and charities over the years as well as being kind to the many people waiting overnight for concert tickets so we decided to shop local and pay it back.More

Called in a takeaway order last night and arranged collection at 5:30 I had the duck pizza which was very tasty. We had the large wings to share which was a very generous portion. They also do a great kids deal for €10 which includes...homemade goujons, chips and a brownie. They have a lovely area set up for outdoor seating so will definitely try to book in with the girls for some food and drink next week.More

Food was ok, pricey. Not a massive selection on the menu, we usually get duck knuckles they are a lot smaller now?? Nice bar service is good.

We went to this place for a bite to eat and to watch the match this place was lovely & cosy. Nicely decorated, toilets were constantly spotless. Theres a hidden gem upstairs, a massive beer garden/smoking area with it's own bar,lovely lights and plenty of...room. This is where most people headed when they came in ,as it was our 1st time here we didn't know about it. We had some food which when it came it was lovely. The Pizza was tasty :) Unfortunately on the night there was a power outage in the whole of Navan town,staff in the Central were on the ball with placing numerous candles on all the occupied tables, they handled the situation Extremely well& quick,the power outage didnt bother us in the slightest ,we still enjoyed ourselves in the dark,it was even cosierMore

Dined in The Central 11th September with family. Excellent Covid precautions on entry, with very friendly staff. We were shown to our table which was comfortably “socially distanced” from other diners. Lovely atmosphere, and service was excellent. Quality and presentation of food was second to...none, tasty and of high quality. Well done to The Central. Would highly recommend a visit.More

Wonderful to see them back open. Very organised unpon entry as a walk in, they had us seated in no time. Their covid implications are well organised and clear. Nice touch with the mini branded sanitizer on every table. Varied menu. Fig salad was amazing....Nice relaxed atmosphere.More
