One of our favourite places in Dublin; food and drink is always faultless, and the place has a nice buzz to it.

Staff helpful and friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere, while also keeping Covid guidelines. Also, one of our group is coeliac and our waitress was very switched on, and also consulted chef about menu possibilities. Excellent experience. We will definitely be back.

Great food and service. Pity about the rear garden. A tiny bit of love and care would make it a very special place to go. Not very many exterior eating areas in the DunL/ Dalkey area. Your area strikes me as an untapped gold mine.

The place is lovely, the food was great, the staff were friendly but no staff were wearing PPE of any kind. I cannot recommend this venue on those grounds.

II love this place but food is not good enough 5 prawns on a lump of spagetti.. not a good main course. A few simple veggies and a bit of sauce would be great ....

Lovely food and great service, would recommend. Quite pricey but we did get a starter and main with a bottle of wine which worked out at around €45 each which actually isn't too bad at all.

Very welcoming service. The Pub is very well kept and clean. The staff are attentive, professional and friendly and know their food/drinks. The chowder was amazing as was the "fish and chips" - very fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. Good value - excellent food and service - Please go.

Had a very nice meal on Friday night last, shared the starter prawns which were yummy maybe a bitmore bread need to soak up the delicious sauce! Hubby had fish and chips which he really enjoyed and i had the cottage pie (duck style) meaning like a stew very tasty served with a cheese topped mash potatoe, real comfort food.

We had a bit of craic with the staff who were real friendly and looking forward to going up there again.Do book because it gets really busy which is a great sign!!

Food was really delicious. Service was good considering how busy the pub is. It gets noisy once any band comes on so eat earlier if you want a quieter meal. Overall really impressed. Will be back

Seated us quickly. Made me a dish that had been on the menu previously even though it wasn't there that evening. The lamb burger is delicious, their mac n cheese (the special dish) is by far the best I've found in Dublin so far. The desserts were good. Definitely fair prices. Highly recommended.
