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...

“Cosy atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

We picked Hatters for a meal after work. The restaurant is really nice, with red and white checked table cloths, a feel at home atmosphere.
The menue is varied, an there is also a menu of the day. I had soup of the day that was absolutely gorgeous, and a perfect hamburger, including chips and onion rings. Good service as well.

“Top hat to Hatters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Two visits within a week. Enjoyed the Early Bird menu and it was terrific value!
Booking is essential especially from & including Thursday to Weekend, as this place fills up very quickly.

“Quality food and customer care”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

A real hidden gem and what sets it apart is not just the excellent quality of the food but the first class customer service.

Nothing was too much trouble and it is hard to understand why this restaurant is not ranked number one in the town. After my superb meal I spent the rest of the night in the adjoining bar Gertie Browne's which is full of character and is probably one of the best bar's it has been my pleasure to sup a pint in.

This place has got true Irish soul and this is something that is becoming increasingly rare.

I cannot wait to return and all associated with this establishment should feel proud.

“Lovely cosy restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Came here because of all the good reviews and it didn't disappoint. Food was lovely portions were a nice size and the tolberone cheesecake was gorgeous. The restaurant it's self is like taking a step back in time but this is what makes it so nice and cosy!! Definitely worth a visit when in Athlone!
