Voted gastropub of the year in our biggest Food Award,Our much beloved gastropub tradition is still being honoured with the signature pickles, homemade crisps and treacle tarts. Here, you'll find the likes of PX- braised ox cheek, bone marrow sauce, pickled scapes, fine beans, & toasted almond or chorizo, cider-braised onions, and roasted garlic. Most especially, post-pandemic, the joy of feasting with friends, missed so viscerally, takes pride of place with a Feasting Menu featuring roasted lamb, whole fish, wood-fired chicken and a cornucopia of sharing courses such as roasted gambas with chilli & garlic, black kale with pine nuts and anchovy, and, to finish, a whole cheesecake.
Our bar makes pies pies pies...think Meat and cheese, steak and even coddle pie.
We are delighted to be honouring our own traditional lexicon of producerscraft beers on tap, over 200 wines on a stellar list written with love and a small but considered and decidedly timeless classic cocktail list

    The service and food were amazing. This place has the best Sunday roast I’ve ever eaten. My favorite eating experience during our European holiday.

    What a gem of a place not too far from all the noise of Temple Bar. Small place with amazing service and more amazing food. A must go if you are in Dublin. Absolute delight

    We went for a Sunday roast and it was sensational. It's the best roast I've had outside of a homecooked one. In addition, the service was exceptional. We had to eat early so we were in when it opened at 12 and were warmly welcomed. We didn't take full advantage of the wine list but it was varied and extensive. We had the pork and beef and both were absolutely delicious - meat was perfect and the accompanying veg were fabulous. We will definitely come back next time we are in Dublin as it was sooooo good.

    I went for the Sunday roast with my partner and it was honestly one of the best meals I’ve had in quite a while. We ordered one beef and one chicken roast, along with the Focaccia as a side. We also had the crumble for dessert and lemon posset. It was incredibly tasty, the portion sizes were a good size and as someone who has a big appetite it was perfect. The service was second to none, the food came out fast, I can’t find a fault.

    We had a super meal. Service was excellent: friendly and appropriate. My elderly dad was struggling with his newly-issued credit card. The person who welcomed us in could not have been nicer. She kindly and gently helped him to check his new password meaning he was able to relax into enjoying his meal. They also served him the best pint of Guinness that he has ‘had in years’! Happy days!
