We stumbled upon this place by chance having had a lovely day at the zoo nearby. It calls itself the longest pub in Dublin and it’s certainly long! The bottom line is it’s not cheap for pub grub and it’s on a busy road too...More

My wife and I were here on New Year's Eve and, despite the fact that the place was extremely busy, we found the service to be very good. Alan who seemed to be the manager on the evening couldn't do enough for us. The roast...More

Enjoyed a meal and a few drinks at his venue with colleagues from work. The building is amazing, it's actually a huge building that manages to give the perception of being a cozy village pub. The food was not too bad, with decent menus, and...More

A loyal customer here the last few years and for good reason. Always liked the food, the atmosphere and the staff are all excellent. However, I do think the quality of food has slightly decreased recently. Always looked forward to the chicken wings when going...More

I was here again last week having sworn I wouldn't come back after my last experience here in Jaunuary while on a date. At that time the service was atrociously slow. The food was stodgy and not worth its price point. Waited 25 mins at...More

Very quirky pub / restaurant - long and narrow with tons of character. You can enter the Phoenix Park right next to the HITW main entrance. It's just a 10 minutes walk from Dublin Zoo. Service is slow but lunch is lovely and very good...More
