Description: Welcome to Hatter's Lane Bistro at Strand Street on Athlone's Leinster shore. Ideally located 3 minutes from the Town Bridge, Radisson, Prince of Wales and Sheraton hotels. The Hollywood themed bistro offers a welcoming cosy atmosphere with open fire, check table clothes, walls adorned with movie star icons. The background music is easy listening typically featuring tunes from Sinatra, Martin, Bennett and the likes... Running in tandem with Gertie Brown's old world award winning pub, Hatters Lane offers the customer a unique and satisfying dining experience and hopefully will continue to serve great food well for years to come...

This restaurant deserves all its plaudits. A very welcoming and cheerful staff, a relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. The staff are very pleasant and the service is very punctual with no long waits. The food is top quality and at very acceptable prices. Hatter's lane will definitely be visited again.

We ate in hatters mid week and found to food to be average at best the service was not up to standard either no bread with the soup the waiter didnt even make an effort to have a conversation with us. I had the gorganzola tartlet the presentation was no exsistant just thrown together my partner had the soup which was ok but lacked seasoning. For mains i had a steak it didnt look great served on a bed of saute onion with a peppercorn sauce which was just gravy with pepper added no attention to detail but it was cooked perfect my partner had the pasta and said it was well cooked but lacked flavour. The desert (cheese cake) was very good and looked well. On leaving the restaurant both of us said we would probaly not return in a hurry as the food and service seems to be lacking in passion and attention to detail.

Was in Athlone on a couples weekend and we came across this restaurant after trying to book a few other restaurants that we had heard of - they were all booked up on a Saturday night and we only got round to making our reservation at Hatters Bistro at 5pm for a sitting at 8pm. They could accommodate us no problem. The restaurant itself is beautiful, cosy and interesting with lots of movie memorabilia hanging up. The staff were soo attentive and friendly and the food was absolutely amazing - most of us had steaks - mine was a sticky Teriyaki steak and it was the best Steak Ive ever had - we still talk about going back to Athlone just to get to this restaurant. Well worth a visit!
