“Best pub/restaurant around.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Great out of town Pub. A pub for all ages really, there are games to play with your mates ( pool and darts ), there's a quite intimate place to hang around with your girlfriend/wife, there's three different bars, 3 tv's as well as a massive projector to watch the hurling/soccer and a big car park. Don't get me started on the food, absolutely delicious, massive rack of ribs with chips for just 6.50 and a pepsi for just 1.50. The staff are extremely friendly, and the owner is a top man.

“The Orchard House, Kilkenny”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The Orchard House is real local with excellent food at a good price with excellent hospitality. Parents could relax over a meal in the family lounge while the children are pre-occupied inthe outdoor play area. A regular visitor to the fine cuisine and sports bar.

“One word Excellent”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

I went to the new orchard house for the first time on friday night for my son's wedding and i have to say the room was set up beautifully and the staff were so friendly and helpful to everyone all day they really did make it one of the best days of my life I know my son and new daughter in law could not stop raving about the place and I can see why. The food was fantastic and very big portions and from what my son was saying very very reasonably priced. What a day thank you to all the staff involved on behalf of myself and my family.

Just to finish off if you are looking for a place to have your wedding seriously give this place a call before going anywhere else.

“Absolute Best Pub/ Restaurant in town”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

If you are looking for amazing food, a nice family atmosphere or a sports bar with 3 TV's and a Massive projector then this is the pub for you..they have a pool table, not 1 but 2 Dart Boards ...a lottery game machine, a quite room that you can get away from all the clatter from outside, and an outside deck as well as a children's playing area...and also the prices there are fantastic...the portion sizes are HUGE! definately recommend the Chicken tenders...only 7 euro with salad and chips! and get a PINT of Pepsi for 3 Euro...or get a Heineken (one of the best pints I have ever tried..they really know the art of pouring a pint) for 4.30....Also the staff are nice, friendly and hospitable!
