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.

If you’re looking for a phenomenal dining experience, look no further than The Saloon. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the staff is friendly and attentive, making my first visit a truly memorable one. I had the Sirloin steak which was delicious! I'm honestly...still dreaming about it. The menu has a fantastic selection of dishes, and I loved everything I tried. I only had good comments about the food. I can’t wait to come back again!More

Incredible service and staff were so welcoming and attentive. We ordered the steak and burgers and it was some of the best food we have eaten. When giving compliments to the chef, one of the staff members informed us that the chef was her 18...year old son. Would highly recommend coming here for something to eat. We are still raving about the steaks and cannot wait to return.More

Despite negative reviews from previous management, Saloon Dromncoura City is back on the best shape! Appetizers, main courses and drinks are served freshly, well plated and quickly. Atmosphere and interior are excellent, service is friendly, warm and welcoming. Beside local Irish Pubs, this is a...place to enjoy until the end. See you soon 🤠More

Had the pleasure of visiting Drumcoura again on Saturday. The new menu is brilliant. Burger was so juicy and tasty. My partner got the ribs. onion rings are definitely homemade and they were so good. Great atmosphere. Great for families. Staff were very attentive. The...decor of old saloon is so unique. Look forward to going again.More

Having heard a bit about this place we decided we'd give it a go. Had a reservation for 8pm for two, arrived at 8 but the table wasn't ready. Staff behind bar kept apologising,and kept saying it will b ready soon, we finally got seated...about half 8. At one point it felt like we were in a creche or childcare place, it was crawling with kids but maybe it was just the night it was. Ordered starters that were another 40 minutes coming at 9:10 pm and were cold and bland when they did arrive. The wings were sloppy and the ribs were small and tasteless. For mains we had to get up at twenty to ten to ask how much longer till they were ready. The pizza wasn't much more than what you'd get in the freezer aisle of the supermarket and the burger was drier than the skull of the poor beast that was mounted above the bar. As as for the onion rings, they came in a basket on a plate that caught enough oil running out of them to fry up another couple dozen of them. All in all it was a very bad experience, they dud knock the cost if the starters off the bill for the wait we had but in honesty it needs more than that to entice us to go there again.More

We had a booking made weeks in advance for a large group of family. We were there at 6.30pm we were waiting forever for our starters well over an hour. Then no sign of our dinners after around 2 and half hours there. We started...asking the two waiters what's going on. Some of us had babies and toddlers with us and it was nearly 9pm. We were told they had an incident today and food would be along shortly. Nearly 9.30pm and still nothing. Half of our group had to leave and went to get a take away somewhere else instead. Some of us said we would wait it out because it was too late to go anyhere else. They started bringing food out around 10pm. Two of us had ordered steak and we were told it was only being put on now. We told them not to bother it was too late. Never experienced anything like this before it was ridiculous. Another group that arrived after us were dealing with the same situation as us and kept waiting hours. The ones that did get food said it was just very average. There was only two girls working there behind the bar and same ones doing the waiting. There seems to be only one chef who is under pressure and couldn't cope. We were understanding and polite about the situation but we didn't receive much sympathy or were not kept informed about any situations until we asked what the delay was. For example they could have asked us not to order starters or could have booked our order hours in advance since we booked weeks ago. Very unfair considering we had small kids and babies with us. At nearly 10pm we were offered a free round of drinks when we were about to leave so we couldn't even accept that. We asked to speak to a manager or person in charge and there was nobody there to speak to us. Waiting staff didn't really know what to do with the situation. They were probably embarrassed. They didn't appear to be too bothered about what was happening it properly is the norm there. Place itself was run down. Bathrooms had no toilet paper, bins over flowing, function room was cold ect. Defo avoid for food. I would only advise going here for a drink if your desperate.More

We went for food & drinks, just ordered drinks first & then we observed a meal been sent back to the kitchen. So decided to hold off on the food. Another table near us waited 40+ muinets for their food to arrive. Then we observed...them sending one dish back to the kitchen. The area we were in was freezing cold, a tiny stove & non of the radiators on. It was a large room. The ladies toilets had no lights on, then the toilets had no water in the ciston to flush. There were a number of dirty glasses on the outside tables as we left that were there when we arrived. No outside lighting on the decking area, carpark area, I nearly fell down the side steps The place is a health & safety hazard in my view. Should be inspected asap.More

Not a great experience. Long wait on meal. 45 mins for 2 burgers? And not really worth the wait. Noticed that other tables had long wait also. One table sent meal back. Staff seemed to disappear from floor. No front of house manager visible. Had...high hopes for venue under new management but fear , if they don't fix problems things will go down hill fast. Which is a pity, as its a great venue.More
