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.

Last day in Ireland and out for stroll. Stopped at The Village Inn for a pint and lunch. Alanna, our server, was excellent, very professional and friendly. Roast beef was excellent and we topped off lunch with the Brambly Apple Pie which was really nice...with vanilla ice cream and creme anglaise. Definitely worth a stop if your in the Celbridge area.More

The chef could teach Gordon Ramsey a thing or two. I usually wouldn't be bothered leaving reviews unless they are bad ones. But the food myself and my family enjoyed here today deserved a good review.

We decided to stop for food and drink on our way to Cork, and were glad we did! The bartender was very friendly and welcoming, and once we were sat on the dining side Alana took excellent care of us. The atmosphere was quite cozy!...Quick service, great food, would love to come again.More

We had a perfect stay here for a really delicious lunch. Alana's service was great! We felt warmly welcomed and served in the very best way. The soup and bread were homemade and tasted really marvellous. We' ll for sure come again.

Lovely place. Great welcome. Couldn’t do enough for us. Orders taken and food arrived promptly. Food presentation good and tasted good. One suggestion might be to include a salad or two for those of us who might like to eat lightly from time to time

This is an absolute gem in Celbridge. Myself and my hubby have been going here for the past 3 years at least once a week. The food is one of the best examples of pub food I have enjoyed, which is matched by the outstanding...service of all staff, in particular Ross who always accommodates us and Alana - She looked after our table quite a number of times and we were amazed of the brilliant service she provides.More

Myself and my friend had the pleasure of eating there recently. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Great choice on the menu and prices are what you would expect to pay. We both had chicken wing starters and steak for mains as well as...desserts. All the courses were delicious and everything was eaten. Would highly recommend it and will definitely be back the next time I’m in Celbridge.More

My son decided a nice meal out for my birthday was in order so we choose the village inn having been before and not disappointed and highly recommend it for excellent food, terrific service and staff that cannot do enough for you. What strikes me...most is that it is all the same faces. Same staff, same management, Donal and Paul and same customers I reckon too from our last visit, I actually remembered our server Alana for her beautiful positive attitude going over and above all expectations. We had a great dinner which consisted of cod and the most amazing onion rings I’ve ever had. Can't beat the place in my opinion. Looking forward to my next visit already.More

Just home after what could have been another lovely meal, as I previously had on Dec 22nd 2020. How very different I now feel after my visit there tonight. Soup was as good as I remembered, however main course a complete let down. The waitress...told my friend & I the dish of the day was roast chicken with 3 different types of cheese. That sounded good so I went for it . The sides were skinny fries & salad so I asked for the sweet potato variety. When they arrived they looked like a more cremated version of McDonald’s chips. The chicken had batter on it & I keep waiting to bite the cheesy bit except it never happened. I explained this to the waitress when ordering my coffee. I expected some form of an apology but none was forthcoming. We left a tip & a different girl took our money & we just left the venue both feeling very deflated by the whole sorry experience. Very disappointed with the food & the very casual customer care. We were both recent birthday girls treating ourselves to a nice meal out - but it has just left us with a sad/bad aftertasteMore
