The Old Stand always feels like an old Dublin pub. Its near work for me and we often go for Friday pints after work. It gets mad busy at weekends but the staff know what they are doing. The pub grub is also good. I love the atmosphere here

We were greeted and served by a really helpful friendly waitor called Cathal, he made us feel so welcomed and like nothing was a problem. The food was of good standard and although it was really busy the food was brought to us... More

My dad, sister and me went to have a bit of lunch. We asked the waiter a question about the menu and we got a rude/smart reply. I then attempted another question and he was still rude. I asked was there a bun on the burger for my dad. His reply was this is not mc donalds...... The menu stated... More

Was a freezing day and decided to come in here for lunch. Ordered the fishcakes and they were a treat! Hit the spot and warmed me up. Very friendly bar staff. Tip: breathe in if you want to get into the loo cubicles!

The old stand is one of those pubs that you always feel welcome in. It's never overrun with tourists and it's just so nice to relax in. I've visited many times and will definitely return.

We had lunch and a pint at this great old pub 2 days in a row while visiting Dublin. A great respite after walking around the town. Super friendly service & enjoyed some traditional meals - bangers and mash, fish cakes, beef pie.

This was our first visit to this pub. We only had drinks here and while the prices are quite high, the service and atmosphere made up for it. There was a lovely ambience and even though it was fairly busy, service wasn't affected. The Irish Coffees were excellent probably the best that we've had in a while. Definitely somewhere we'll...
