First visit here since new owners took over. The whole building has been freshly decorated and other changes made. They have done a beautiful job. They serve food in the lounge during the day and have a lovely restaurant too. The bar food has a comprehensive choice plus Chefs specials. Our food was excellent and the staff are even better....

First time here since it was done up. Food is lovely , although slightly small portions and the staff are friendly. I had the chicken burger and my wife had the curry which we both enjoyed. Bit more expensive than it use to be but all in all a decent place for a meal. Not a place just for a...

This was my first visit since it reopened. My son had the burger and fries and said it was very tasty, I had the curry, which had to be tweaked for my allergy needs. The staff were so accommodating and the chef made doubly sure that the dish met my needs. I was very impressed with everything and everyone! The...

After being disappointed the first time I tried the recently reopened twelfth lock, I was extremely impressed by the standard of their new restaurant 'Fish'. The prawns in sambuca, as weird as it sounds, are unreal! We then ventured into the bar and the standard of service was excellent , Moscow Mule is a must have . After being let...

Food was cold and bland. Sweet potato fries were a soggy disaster! Supplements for everything. Clearly a lot of prepped food and no fresh cooking. Ridiculous for the cost. Brownes company shouldn't be so greedy. Remember that locals keep businesses running! Lovely staff however.

Really not sure what the 12th Lock is trying to be? I'd been here a few years back and had enjoyed ice cold pints of cider, sitting on the grass overlooking the Dublin's famous Royal Canal. I returned with a guest just before Christmas to a quasi Miami styled restaurant where the Bar lighting changes were akin to that of...
