A pub like this needs a host!! Someone that understands it's guests not some 23 year old robot who selflessly follows it's convoluted rules of entry..... But there what else can you expect for £7.20 an hour!!!

This was our second visit. The first was just for drinks but seeing other people get their food which looked appetising we decided next time we would try the food. We did tonight and we were both very happy with the food, the service and rhe price. I had the chicken curry which was really tasty and my husband had... More

Had a band on upstairs which was good followed by a DJ. Bar prices where quite expensive. Could be a great night but too many sleazy guys which spoiled it a bit

I was in Brennan's on 15th. Admittedly I did not have the prawns buy my partner did. Pleased to say there were no ill effects. To the best of my knowledge, you know if you are eating dodgy prawns: Taste and smell give the game away immediately. We had a great evening and night. Good wholesome pub grub all washed... More

strange that Tripadvisor allow an open question to be posted from users but no way to reply, so will just post my own review in response to user Kelndib below. I was also here on 15th Jan with friends to watch football, since we find this bar to be best out of the 3 situated beside each other. I had... More

Arrived about 9pm on a Friday & a DJ was playing oldies (mostly 80s hits) & the crowd were singing along. Mostly an older crowd - great atmosphere. At 10 a traditional band came on, but didn't just play old Irish songs - their versions of Teenage Kicks & Fairytale of New York brought the house down. They also played... More

Stopped by for lunch and had steak and Guinness pie and fish and chips; both very good. The steak and Guinness pie, though tasty, was not as good as the one we had across the street at Robinsons. The clientele is friendly as is the staff. Service is much, much better here than at Robinsons! The Sunday we were at... More
