The Paragon Bar offers a great new menu that I really liked. It's new evening menu has great choice and variety (my friends and I ordered different things and tried each others food). The food was great value for money as the portions were very big although we were were waiting a while but it was a busy night. The atmosphere was brilliant and there was a live band playing later that night. The staff were friendly and attentive. I will definitely return :) A thumbs up from me and my friends :)

“Hard not to recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The paragon bar is great for fantastic service and brilliant food. The people are very friendly and chatty. There is a wide range of options on the menu from Italian dishes to homely Irish dishes. If I had to recommend a dish I would have to say The Phillie Steak Sandwich, very delicious. Even just to go to The Paragon for a coffee or a drink is good. You can relax and enjoy your time while you are out. Very pleased and would definitely recommend it to others.
