    We have been going to JF for food and drink for years and have always loved the experience. Last night was disappointing- the Guinness was not as good, the fish and chip portion was much smaller and more expensive. It was cold and just not up to the usual standard at all.

    Never disappointed at Johnie Fox’s. I visit quite frequently, because I live close by. And I can confidently say I never had a bad experience. Food is amazing, prices are reasonable and service is excellent. The Irish music & atmosphere also great if that’s something you’re into.

    Very nice place, good food and nice waiters , I will only add that the girl checking your booking with the tablet looked at me very disgusted when I say hello …beside that she didn’t even respond to me , she was like “do you have a booking” and again looking at me disgusted, well… nice place but she left me with a bitter taste and felt judged when I was seated like I was bothering someone being there… I had my mussels and steak and left straight away…I have even taken the deserts for take away ….This is the only reason I won’t return or recommend.

    Very tasty creative food - authentic friendly staff. The old pub is bursting with charm and atmosphere. Full of tourists but hasn't fallen into the usual tourist rip off trap. This place is an example of how to do hospitality well.

    Service was poor, asked for a table where the live music is, nobody even acknowledged our message. We tried to change the table that was offered but with no success. Front desk old guy was arogant and ignorant all together.

    I usually have a fantastic time at Johnny Fox’s and always can’t wait for the next visit but the service really let them down this time. No sides came with our meal and we were almost finished before we could find the attention of waitstaff, we asked for the sides to just be removed as the meal was over. The drinks were served at multiple different times with someone constantly waiting on a drink. We booked hoping to be sat in a comfortable seat given one guest has mobility issues and we were placed on a shared dinning table with other guests. It wasn’t an awful visit but definitely my least favourite visit so far.
