    Everything was lovely. The only things that let it down was a grubby looking stair carpet and the loos didn’t feel particularly clean. Apart from that we had an enjoyable time and all in our party enjoyed themselves.

    8a is simply great. Have never had the slightest issue. Featherblade Beef and Roast chicken on early bird delicious. Have had everything on the menu over the past number of years and have never been disappointed. Lovely staff and cosy surroundings. I wish all restaurants were this consistent.

    A fabulous experience. Deirdre & Áine our servers ware fantastic hosts who made our evening even more enjoyable. The food was wonderful, I had the pan fried prawns and the fish and chips for my main both were mouthwatering. My wife had the duck liver pate served with a confiture it was delicious as I tried a taste. She also had the fish of the day char grilled salmon with baby potatoes greens. She was very pleased. We did not have deserts as we nicely full after very adequate portions. We will return again in the not too distant future.

    Super staff: obliging and attentive. Also a nice welcome on arrival and found our taxi on departure- which had parked in the wrong spot. Noise level high but this is a feature of a full restaurant so can’t complain. Overall a nice experience.

    There’s a front area which seems to fill first and is very buzzy with music on the night we visited. We were in the rear which was much quieter but very pleasant. You takes your pick. The food was good without being memorable and overall we were very happy with our visit.

    We were a party of 5 including a wheelchair user. I put this note on the booking and everything was ready in place for us when we arrived even though it was early. The staff were so accommodating and nothing was a bother. It’s very apparent that all of the staff have been well trained and know the menu - there were no delays and our water bottle was topped up without having to ask on a number of occasions Food was top notch and the set menu made ordering so much simpler and at a reasonable price point. I’d highly recommend this venue
