Had a lovely dinner. Made a reservation and called to let them know we were running a bit late. They were more than accommodating. Staff was friendly and food and drinks were served very quickly. Also, live music. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner in Kilkenny.

Excelente servicio y comida!!! Además de su cómoda ubicación y grandes salones (pidan ir a la parte de atrás qué hay todo un patio muy bello).Almorzamos una ensalada césar, fajitas, alitas de pollo (Búfalo BBQ) y un pulled pork sándwich. Todo exquisito. Los meseros, todos jóvenes, muy amables, siempre preguntándonos si estábamos bien o necesitábamos algo. Incluso las bebidas (Limonadas y jugos) muy ricas!!!Es para recomendar 100% este lugar!!

Ignore Dana's review below. PTB was top shelf. Great upscale pub atmosphere.Our server Adam made great recommendations and had the demeanor to work in the finest of establishments.The BBQ was top notch on flavor and tenderness. The servings were plentiful. Also the whiskey flight I had allowed me to try some of Ireland's finest.The inferno wing flavor was probably the hottest I've had in Europe and was tasty too.Don't miss PTB, you get bang for your buck.

Durch Zufall auf die Rezension "Bestes Pub auf unserer Rundreise" gestoßen und können dies nur bestätigen. So köstliches Pubfood, wahnsinnige Auswahl an Draught Beers und die Location-ergeben klare 5 Sterne! Unbedingt einen Besuch wert. Von außen unscheinbar, führt es dann durch verschiedene Areas und Flairs. Für jeden was dabei.

Loved it.....different on the outside looks like a small pub....great surprise on the inside! Dark first, gets a little lighter and then completely opened up. FOOD is fab, so much to choose from, lovely atmosphere, great staff, three great big bar areas, different plasma T.V points which is a bonus! Great place for night out...covers all ages, its the place to go in Kilkenny!

I don't remember Texas being this nice. While it's always a bit comical to try Mexican food outside the Americas, this place did not disappoint for a tasty meal and a pint in a nice atmosphere. Lovely and art-deco-y with a very pretty bar.
