    The food is very good with one glaring exception This has to be the only pub type restaurant that I have visited which does not have chips (french fries). Regrettably not everybody likes soft creamy potatoes. There was not any alternative. I have been many times before and chips were always on the menu with hake, which has been removed from the menu. Whilst I appreciate many customers may be quite happy with the potato offered I think there should be more than one type of potato offered. It will probably make me think twice about returning again

    From the moment we entered to a warm and inviting bar snug with an open turf fire burning gently until we'd finished our whisky laden dessert and paid the the bill the service was excellent the food was gorgeous the drinks were wonderful and the atmosphere was as expected amazing. Even after we were all finished with the inside there was more fun for the kids outside as they pressed their own Jonny Fox's 5 cent coin. The adults had a grand time and the kids had a ball, the music was just right mood wise and volume, all in all no complaints

    Saw the reviews on the internet needed somewhere to stay in motor home on way back to rosslare Blown away by the place table booked for8.15 but happily accommodated us early Great quirky pub that seems to run like a well oiled machine, staff so efficient We ate steak and Guinness pie which was delicious Traditional Irish music a big bonus

    The pub is a must visit place if you haven’t yet, the interior, the vibes, the real fire in the fireplaces, the service and food are all great. Johnnie Fox's is a living museum with every corner and wall space covered with antiques and Irish history. Live music is common too!

    The food is not good. Duck is fat and probably initially frozen. Seafood tagliatelle are just made of a lot of not homemade tomato sauce. And there are very few seafood. Lamb stew not very good. Overall venue is interesting, but food is not good at all and require an urgent action.

    I am a regular to Johnny Foxes, I have even had family functions etc but I have to say the food has gone down hill. The mussels don’t taste the same at all, something with the sauce has changed. The balsamic onion and mushrooms with the steak really ruins the whole meal. I asked for it without the balsamic but it is pre made. The steak is €30 which is fair but not without the option to have chips or plain mushrooms and onions! Can’t seem to order chips at all anymore. The ribs are gone. The pork belly starter is gone. The chocolate pot is gone a long time but we still can’t understand why, it was the best dessert. The menu really needs attention!! Much love ❤️

    Two sources of music so we couldn't enjoy either. I booked a table for 5 people and we were squeezed into a table for 4. Our neighbouring 4 seat table was similarly seating 5people. The food was at such a high temperature that there was no taste. We were entertaining an American guest and certainly will not be back .

    The two starters were unpleasant - the chowder was shockingly bad - it used to be really good at JFs. And to serve oysters on lettuce! Why? The mains were very good - steak and duck.

    Add few more options in vegetarian food. Adding a veg sandwich/burger or lasagne/pizza is not going to reduce your brand value. Most of the time we avoid going thee just because of the fact that there is no option at all. We love the place the ambience but food.

    Johnnie Fox'sResponded on 14 June 2022Hello Aditya, Thank you for the feedback. There is the soup, goatscheese, puy lentil one pot and veg stew. We do not do burgers or pizza so if we added a veggie option we would have to introduce them in general. We are a seafood restaurant after all! Teagan

    We have been here many times and the food and ambience never disappoint however we always think a key measure of a good establishment are the cleanliness/presentation of the toilets and unfortunately Johnnie Fox's falls well short in this area. For such a successful venue attracting so many locals and visitors, it needs to invest in upgrading their toilet facilities.

    My beef and Guinness pie was served far too hot to eat and contained carrots while guess what vegetable was served with it? More carrots!

    Johnnie Fox'sResponded on 8 June 2022Hello Peter, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
