Had the beef and Guinness stew which was really lovely, and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The pub had a nice warm feel and the live music from a singer added to the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

On friday29th January I found myself walking around the lovely city of Kilkenny, I called into Matt the Millers and decided to have a nice bowl of chowder on a cold day. The chowder arrived but to my horror it tasted just like salted vegetable soup , it have almost no sea fish or shell fish in the soup , and the only thing to be seen floating around were carrots and some scallions. Very poor and very disappointing. I complained to the waitress and was almost dismissed on hearing my complaint. So for me its avoid this place if you want to eat.............go elsewhere.

Had lunch in this pub in the center of town situated in a picturesque spot right on the river and a stones throw from Kilkenny Castle.
Good menu and the meals exceeded expectations.

While walking about the streets of Kilkenny we stopped in for a rest and, of course, a Guinness. Nice atmosphere, nice pub; a nice place for a break while touring town.
