The place has a fantastic atmosphere the minute you walk in and that is endorsed further by the lovely and genuine welcome from all the staff. They don't just serve you, they engage you and make sure you are confortable. The price of drink is comparable locally. We booked a table in the restuarant and had a fantastic meal, which was one of those meals you talk about for a long while . Again the service was second to none. I have to say that he bill for the meal was most reasonable and this place is highly recommended. Make sure you book a table especially at he weekends.

I often eat here at lunchtime as I work across the road. Saturday at 7pm I met my husband and we had dinner, it was delicious, the place was extremely busy, I expected we might have a wait but happy to say the service was very fast.

Meeting friends on a Saturday night for drinks... There were 8 of us and ordered mojitos. The short blonde haired girl told us we would have to wait, that wasn't a problem, we were waiting 35 mins and I went back up to the bar to see about our drinks and she definitely wasn't happy to see me and made it clear she would bring them down. Another 20 mins and she arrived with another girl bringing them down and she mentioned how busy she was and would recommend not ordering anymore, I was horrified then she started welling up! We put her sitting beside us and asked her was she ok?and explained she was on medication for depression. She seemed lovely but it kind of put a dampener on our night! She actually recommended a cocktail bar in drogheda (bru) which we went to and had a ball ( and no tears!!!)

The Black Bull Inn was recommended to us as we were staying close by. A very popular venue as it was quite crowded but this did not deter the staff from providing excellent service. Our food was delicious and there was clean plates all round with thumbs up from one of our "fussy" eaters. Will be paying a visit next time we are in the area

The best service at any non-fine dining establishment we've ever had in Ireland/Northern Ireland -- as good as Bella Notte in Lexington Kentucky: had to flag down servers for a couple needs during the course of the evening, none of whom were our table's captain and they all came immediately and immediately took personal responsibility for getting what we wanted, that is, they didn't simply tell our captain or go tend to their section's tables first. Mise'd table nicely, including fresh napkins (and the first course setting had 2 napkins ! per place -- at some places you don't even get 1 napkin without having to ask for it).

Eclectic but comfortable decor. Lots of different rooms.

€85 =
1. Gambas Portuguese prawn app was great -- 3 giant prawns.
2. Garlic bread was good but only 2 small triangles.
3. Fish & chips -- good.
4. 2 orders of Tagliatelle: was basically a fettuccine carbonara -- definitely a rich heavy winter dish -- good.
5. burger -- good.
6. child's sausage plate -- good.
7. choc ice cream -- was very good quality and nice presentation.
8. 2 orders of crumble -- disappointing: tasted like warmed up applesauce with some crumbs that were not really baked.
9. 2 coffees -- good.
10. Guinness
