Description: The Grand Central is a former bank renovated to classic proportions. The Grand Central features four central columns set around the central dome of beautifully restored 1920 architecture. It still houses the original safes that were still being used up until recently in it's former role as a bank. Here you find a great atmosphere, lovely cocktails, amazing food & super service.

Great interior decor and atmosphere even though it was fairly quiet when we were there. Our table waiter, Vincent was outstanding and tended to us brilliantly. What an asset that boy is! Well done to the owners for giving him a job. Will be back for sure.

I had a live spider in my food.

I ordered the Beef and Guinness pie, which was served with side salad. After a couple of bites of the pie, I put my fork in the salad only for a spider to emerge from under the leaves. The spider was roughly the size of a €2 coin, was black and had a couple of white spots on its back.

The waitress did not show much reaction and took the plate away. The barman said our bill was on the house.

This incident happened in early 2018. Never again.

Lovely and beautiful pub, great desserts, the apple crumble was delicious. They advertise service with a smile, but that we did not get though. Otherwise nice experience.
