“No Welcome for the disabled here.”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I am disabled.
We booked a table for 8 for a team lunch today. This bar has been revamped. Previously it had regular tables and chairs as well as booths.
On arriving I discovered that the seating now consists of either high bar stools or high booths.There is one little table with 4 little stools at it. We were not advised of this when booking.
I asked at the bar if the upstairs seating area was open,but was told it was not. The bar staff couldn't seem to figure out why a disabled person might have a problem climbing up onto a bar stool.
I was embarrassed and humiliated as everyone else seated in the bar was looking at me, so I walked out.
So if you are disabled, keep your self respect and dignity. Give this place a miss.

“Good atmosphere.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Went here on Grand National weekend. Small and intimate. Great location. Only downside was the staffing/cleanliness. I spent about an hour there on a busy Saturday afternoon and only saw one of the bar staff collect glasses once, but didnt wipe the tables as some had drinks spilled on them. Wilk be back, hopefully teething problems will be ironed out. Woukd recommend.

“Needs some work but has potential!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

This is a great wee spot with a fantastic live band at the weekend. They create a really good atmosphere, up till around midnight. Been here the last 2 weekends and both have been the same... Massive shortage of staff, and the staff who are there are really slow and undertrained. I watched a girl take 5 minutes to open 5 bottles of beer! Then they seemed to be pulling 'staff' from the crowd who were dressed casually to serve, and who were obviously under the influence. Secondly, the later it gets the worse the crowd seems to be, with them letting anyone through the door. The mood (and clientelle) seemed to go downhill dramatically from around midnight which was a shame as we were having a great night.
Has great potential and as a new bar there are bound to be teething problems with staff but the amount of neds needs to go!

“Next best thing to visiting Ireland !”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Popped into Malones to check this new pub out, it was 6.30 on Saturday night, there was live music on until 8, variety of songs was excellent. Decided to stay for a bite to eat, had irish stew and it was delicious, ( after my own of course) :-) . Staff were all Irish so gave it an authentic feel and they were very friendly, we will definitely be back for a return visit!
