I love this great bar. The food is really good, and the atmosphere is second to none. All the staff are so lovely and nothing is too much trouble. The menu seemed smaller than last time? But everything we ordered was great. Thanks to everyone and looking forward to a return visit.👍

It was serendipity when we dropped into Geoff's. It was the informal layout that caught my eye, then the welcoming smile of the owner – Geoff – I'd guess. Great coffee and some really good Guinness Cake. Watching and listening to local suppliers drop in with their wares – then engaging us in their conversations was really enjoyable. Made us... More

We were told by the staff at our hotel that Geoff's was a must for a good meal. The staff there was very friendly and the whole pub felt like everyone knew each other, so it was very inviting. The food was great! I had the chowder and it was so delicious. This is definitely a great place to grab... More

Great food and beer in traditional surroundings. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were so impressed that we eat here twice during stay in Waterford. A group of four we consumed several different dishes all of which were thoroughly enjoyed. Try the shoestring fries!

Was the liveliest place on our night so we called in. Funky old school layout with cool chess board tables good music. But the night was ruined when the staff tackled an elderly man out the door without having asked him to leave. He ended up on the road outside and was then dumped by the staff on the path... More

A group of us went to Geoff's for food and drinks last night. Although it was awkward not to have table service (we had to order and pay for food at the bar) the food was delicious (recommend the chowder) and the atmosphere was great. It made all the difference that we could sit in the beer garden. Busy entertaining... More
