I was dining here on a Wednesday night in the summer and the bar was heaving with tours and guests. Drink was excellent and the food was pretty good for bar food, service came with a smile and was excellent. Would definitely go back.

I ate here with friends and family on Saturday evening at 6pm. The food was as expected for the price and well presented though the sirloin was served well done rather than medium rare.
The high point was our waitress (Irish, long hair in a ponytail) who was utterly charming and very helpful.
At 6.30 the live music started up. We couldn’t hear each other over it; it was deafening and it ruined what we hoped would be a relaxing catch up over an early dinner. Far too early for the volume.
We requested to move to the decking area for pudding (sticky toffee pudding served cold?) and again the waitress was very accommodating.
A member of our group left the table to make a phone call and a very large aggressive drunk man joined our table despite our protests and refused to leave for 5 minutes. I discretely gestured to the door staff for assistance only for one to eventually come onto the decking (at which point the drunk had joined another table uninvited) and he immediately went back inside without speaking to him. The bar is only accessible though the foyer of the Limerick City Hotel which made it even more unacceptable.
There are so many other establishments in Limerick worthy of your custom, give this place a wide berth.

Dear Fiona D,

Thanks for your review! It was good to see that you liked the food and the service by your waitress, however, please accept my apologies for the upset caused by the events later that evening.

We have looked into both points and will keep an eye on these matters to ensure that your next experience here is better.

Best regards,

Anthony

The service has been terrible on both occasions when I visited for an early dinner. WE had to keep going up asking for things that should have been on the table. The food on our first visit was good however on our second visit it was terrible. The potatoes tasted like they had been burnt to the bottom of the pot and the meat was not tender.
