Dropped into the Huntsman for Sunday lunch. We arrived around 4 pm and there was a good crowd of people there already. It wasn't overcrowded so we found a table easily. I went to the bar to get a drink but the bar staff were elsewhere watching a football match on TV so I had to wait. Service a the... More

If you're looking for nice pub grub The Hunstman does just that, nothing exciting just honest good home type cooking, good size portions & a generous menu, clean, with friendly staff, the only let down is on arrival as we pulled up in the carpark the exterior grounds are filthy with rubbish on view everywhere, had to jump over a...

Finally got served and everything went ok after that. The kids food was ok fare with the goujons actually being quite nice. I had... More

Looks like this establishment is reverting to its very poor customer service past. Called in for to have lunch but left without. God who in this day and age offers only one lunchtime special and that of all things Turkey and Ham. Looks like the owners have lost interest again. Very poor.

This restaurant is a well known spot for locals, however if you are heading from Balbriggan, Gormanston or Stamullen to the M1 it is the ideal place to stop for a bite to eat. The staff are lovely and the menu is varied and good value for money, and as this establishment is a pub you can have a pint,... More

Ive been here a few times and I think the food is really good value. Great steak, ribs and fajitas. No complaints at all. I find the staff very helpful but I do recognise the older waitress mentioned in other reviews. She seems more interested in watching tv than dealing with anybody that comes in. It's a pity but we...

I recommend to order the basic food on the menu and go in hungry, had a lovely pulled pork burger the other night but from experience keep it simple. As for the staff....... Majority are friendly but the premises/business needs an actual decent manager to run the business correctly
