                                                              It’s always nice to go to a restaurant as a Coeliac and not lose anything in the experience! Most of the menu is gluten free— even half the desserts! I highly recommend for outdoor dining, as they’ll put down the shade and turn on the heat just for you so that you can feel like you’re dining indoors with a much lower risk of getting Covid.

                                                              I invited a couple of friends to come to this place yesterday. The experience was very poor, we needed to send our plates of food back because they were inedible and, we waited more than 20 min to get a bottle of wine (the wrong one). In the end the waitress was very nice with us and we didn't pay for the wine and the service charge. The starters were ok though.

                                                              We really enjoyed our dinner at BH. The service was great and the food was fresh, creative and tasty. The noise inside was quite loud and as we were hosting guests from out of town, they did their best to find us a spot that was the least noisy. We ended up outside, which thankfully was quiet (with the occasional lua) and not crazy cold.

The lamb was cooked pink to perfection but its quality was one of the worst I’ve ever had - very greasy and full of strings

                                                              We absolutely loved our breakfast here. Only wish it hadn't been our last day, and that we'd been in Dublin on a day they were open for dinner. Will definitely be back on my next trip! The food was delicious, such amazing flavours. And the table of pastries was completely drool worthy.

                                                              We had a very good experience at Brother Hubbard. The food was really good, the staff were very friendly and it is spacious, with high ceilings. It is quite loud, but that may not matter to most as there is a good ambiance. They allowed us to stay at the table for a long time, no rushing us for the next sitting, which is different from many brunch places in Dublin and was really appreciated by us. I will definitely be going back.

                                                              The food was unbelievably delicious! However we had a scare with a waiter mistakenly telling us a food item was free of a food I am highly allergic to. Only because I didn't fully believe him I waited 10 minutes or so but I actually had the food held up on the way to my mouth by the time the manager came over and asked me not to eat it. It gave me a really big fright and took away from the enjoyment of the evening. They also had really intense heaters focused directly on us and we were really uncomfortable with the heat until we had to ask them to switch them off. However, the food was so delicious I would 100% go back and do hope that these are issues that would get ironed out.

We went for Brunch and we ordered Eggs(Arabian style) and French toast, everything was tasty, but the French toast was more like a sponge cake, it wasn't juicy. It was tasty but obviously a bit disappointing if you're expecting a "traditional" French toast.
