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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My family had Dinner here yesterday. Unfortunately it was not at all a pleasant experience. The glasses were dirty, my husband found a long hair in his meal which was chicken fajitas. I found raw chicken in my salad and have been ill since. I...told the staff and had to wait for someone to come to my table and when they didn’t my husband went to ask and was told they found no raw chicken and that was it despite the fact I had eaten a huge mouthful of raw chicken and have been ill since! Will not return here sadlyMore

I had a very unpleasant experience this week in the Top house bar In annacotty. I would often bring the people i support there for meals out (they have a learning disability)and have been able to have their needs met by getting liquidised meals when...required, as i did this week, however as we were leaving a staff member quietly said they could no longer do them as their industrial liquidiser was breaking down. We explained that we use a nutri bullet in the house and could they purchase one in order to continue to welcome and include our gentlemen within their local community. They said they understood and would discuss this and get back to us. Having not heard from them we returned the next day to discuss the issue and we were told that they would purchase one and continue to meet the requirements of the gentleman. To my disgust today I received a call from John the manager who said they would not be purchasing any more equipment and the meat was too tough for the industrial blender and therefore would not be liquidising meals any further, I argued the toss with him and his only solution was that we bring the machine with us ourselves and they would try it. Having told him that I would absolutely not be doing that as the gentleman should be able to walk in and have a meal like any other paying customer we ended the conversation. I for one will never step foot in the Top House again 😡🤬More

Went in for a family lunch and had the most wonderful food. The interior of this establishment is amazing. The food was great and my children nearly licked their plates it was that good. The most impressive part of this establishment is the staff. I...was helped by the most helpful and friendly girl with black curly hair. I think her name was Sarah. She was so friendly and greeted my family like we were her family. When my child began to get upset she had a small toy in her pocket to cheer him up. I couldn’t appreciate her skills more. This girl deserves a raise on whatever she is already earning as she was amazing. Thanks !More

Food taken a nose dive. Staff make up for these shortcomings. Friendliness is second to none but diet out the kitchen. Chips, akways reheated, zero seasoning, steak sandwich is yesterdays roast beef. Vol Au vent, average. Menu hiker up in price, breakfast is good for...what u get, avacado from a jar sadly but again staff Make up for it. It be nicer if a bit of thought was put into the food, stop reheating stuff ie, bacon at breakfast and chips.More

Tried lunch here one Saturday when nearby. We had lasagne with chips, salad and garlic bread. It was fab, really tasty and large portions for only €14.95. Lots of free parking, nice staff, friendly service. Will definitely be back.

Went here for breakfast when I was working in Troy Studios with my colleagues and we kept coming back. The Breakfast in the Tap House is Amazing and so reasonable. They cater for all dietary requirements. When we went for breakfast we went in a...big group of 15 and each time we were served our breakfast there was nothing wrong with it or any delay bringing it out to our table. As we were a big group we phoned in our orders and there was no mistakes made by the staff however awkward the orders were . Very accommodating staff, highly recommend the full Irish will be back againMore
