    Went in for the first time on Friday night. The food was fabulous would definitely recommend the wings , pesto burger and steak sandwich. Portion size is huge and the cocktails are to does for, the mojito with a twist is simply delicious. Fabulous was A* and the waiting staff are a credit to the establishment, nothing was too much. They were all super friendly and very polite. Will definitely be returning.

    Arrived at 2.30 p.m. Was offered the menu. I had only been here once before. I didn't realise that I could have been offered the 2nd menu! So was really disappointed when other people came in and were offered the more extensive menu. I had already ordered. I enquired and it was explained about the times of each menu available. I mentioned that I had an appointment for 2.30 p.m. I didn't complain, as I will go back, but next time I will be wiser. The Chicken Wings starter were fab. I found the seating bar area was cold. Not too many there, but we all had our jackets on.

    Today was my first visit to the "Auld Shebeen" in Athy. We had booked for 2.15 p.m. It was my first time since before Covid-19 to eat out and to get together with Family. From a Covid-19 safety perspective, everything was excellent, from Passport checks to seating arrangement to hand sanitiser on our table. The Food was only Georgeous. Each of us chose something different from the menu and not one complaint or dissatisfaction among us. The Service was Excellent. Could not fault it. Friendliness, knowledge, understanding, wearing of masks, how the food was served, Brilliant. I live in Athy and I now have somewhere that I will look forward to visiting again and again and again.
