    Food was very nice and not too expensive. Lots of visual items of Conor on the walls and TV screens. I think I even saw someone with the UFC belt. The person serving us was very attentive and he assisted with a small misunderstanding (I don't like cheese and the wings had blue cheese sauce on it and he helped changing the wings) Would come back again.

    We had a lovely time Friday evening, we booked a weekend to Dublin to include a trip to The Black Forge for my husband’s birthday and we was not disappointed. Jo our waitress was amazing she went above and beyond to look after us. Our food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, it was a great atmosphere. The layout works as we sat at the side of the bar without the hustle and bustle of people ordering drinks as it was all table service. I completely recommend this restaurant xx
