The Old Schoolhouse Restaurant
Downstairs in the bar you can sit and enjoy a great pint of Guinness, watch all sporting events on our big screens, take in some live music, enjoy a burger or steak from our barfood menu or simply just sit outside in our beautiful all year round beer garden.
We were upstairs in the restaurant which is as one would expect quieter than the bar downstairs. The service was warm and friendly, my dish of lamb rump with fondant potato, pancetta and peas was delicious. My husband had pork chops on the menu, however only one chop on the plate, his was delicious too but not as good as my lamb.
Mains cold for all at table and slow to come out starters good
We ere greeted immediately on arrival and shown to a table. The staff were courteous and efficient and our order was taken promptly. The roast beef was ordered, medium rare, well done and medium. Everything arrived as ordered! The vegetables weren't overcooked and it was a very enjoyable meal. The bread appetiser was tasty and we enjoyed the soup greatly. The prawn starter was a very generous portion of prawns and altogether delicious. We thought it was very good value for the 2 courses. The waitress made sure our water jug was constantly replenished. Very enjoyable meal.
Delicious food - probably the best food in Swords.
Everything was very nice but one girl who served us out of the few was a bit moody and my friend noticed she made faces when we ordered.
Otherwise the rest of the staff was friendly and nice it’s a great place food was very very good.
Probably we will be back in the future!
The food is well worth it, the staff are friendly. The service is very good. For good food, a drink and some live music downstairs afterwards it would be a great night.
Our first choice for a meal out in Swords, great quality, ample choice,good portions, pleasent atmosphere and best beer garden in Dublin for drinks afterwards.
I love the place. Great food. Friendly staff. Lovely atmosphere. Gets a big thumbs up from me. Ticks all the boxes! ♥
Looking forward to returning for another great dinner. Service, food, drinks and atmosphere were amazing!
Food was lovely, staff very friendly. Restaurant was cold
Upon arrival gave my name to staff member.Was not brought to table we were just pointed in the direction of it. I asked twice where it was and eventually was brought to it. As it was for my son's confirmation was not impressed as to where we were put. We were under the stairwell I felt we were not belong to the pub. I asked could we be seated else where I was told there was confirmations in the other areas. This annoyed me as I had put on my booking it was for my son's confirmation. As the staff member was walking away muttered under her breath jesus. I didn't say anything as I wanted it to be a nice afternoon lunch for my son. I couldn't fault the food and the value for money.
Fantastic service from staff and very accomadating
Service terrible. During the meal the waitress ask my friend if he finished eating where he still was eat, we all was in shock, on top of that we were inform tyhat we have to leave the table as is next reservation in 0.5h , thats the table is book only for max 2h- where is the information??? We meet in there to celebrate and we were pushed out. On top of that food so-so. Finaly we pay our bill and we went downstairs to the bar- food delicious, service perfect. So i donot recommend restaurant, but i do recomend the bar. The booking online should be improved where you can pick the restaurant or the bar.
Good food, good service good atmosphere.
Enough choice for everyone including fussy children.
Good food. Good value. Staff and very friendly and helpful
Nice atmosphere , friendly staff and the lamb was cooked to perfection
Great place to go for dinner with my family, quality of food very reliable, filling and tasty. We were unable to finish our second course.
As always excellent. Staff are friendly and attentive. Value for money . Highly recommended
Booked a table of 5 here to celebrate my son's 18th. It was a brilliant night, excellent food and service. Staff were lovely and pulled out all the stops for him. We will be back again soon!
The food was amazing and the staff were really friendly. I already have my next visit booked.
Food was absolutely gorgeous as usual and the girls in the restaurant were so so so nice so friendly and kind, made me feel very comfortable
Lovely restaurant with very sizeable food portions and fair prices. I enjoyed my time in the Schoolhouse and so did my partner. I will be recommending to friends.
The best place in Swords for food and drinks. The staff are top class and very professional and friendly.
Kate and the girls were great. The service was good and the waitresses are all friendly and attentive. The food as delicious. We were in on Sunday and everyone is still talking about how nice the food was. Fantastic value as well with the Sunday menu. Options for 2 or 3 courses.
I got the prawns to start - so so good. And the chicken and mushroom pasta for mains. Will definitely be back soon!
Meal was good but wouldn’t be rushing back and wouldn’t recommend it to a friend. Not nice to have to walk through beer garden to get to bar and restaurant.
This is second time we celebrate family ocasion in Old School. All was perfect. Food is lovely. Staff very nice and friendly. Waiting time is ok. Good price for delicious food. Will be back definitly.
The food in the bar is better than the restaurant. The Sunday menu isn’t great. There’s so much more choice in the bar. The food wasn’t hot. By the time we got a couple of bites it was cold. The restaurant bit is fairly small but it was louder than the bar.
My partners first visit he loved it
We plan to visit again soon
Excellent except a little expensive for a restaurant of that spacing & noise .
Sunday Menu Lovely food at a good price and excellent service.
Food was absolutely delicious, wings amazing, fillet steak melt in the mouth cooked to perfection, desert unreal, looking forward to going back soon
