The food is overpriced and the quality is terrible, everybody i know has the same opinion of the place. The only good thing about the place is the coffee at the front

Very good food for adults, kids pizza on menu was very small for price as was chicken satay, when you added in sides which was needed for kids you would nearly be better ordering off adult menu

Was meeting two of my oldest friends. We met for late lunch and were there for a good part of the day. We got great service and never once were we asked to finish up to free the table. Always a great venue to go to. And the food is fantastic

I've been in Ireland for a bit over a month now and Central has already become my go-to place for meeting new friends and having dinner with the family. The appearance is very inviting, the presentation of food looks fantastic and tastes amazing. There's a bar and you have the beautiful outside area (unavailable at the moment it would seem)....

Great sized bar/pub/restaurant in the heart of Navan with extensive beers on tap and huge menu. Harty home cooked food and huge portions at a reasonable price. Would I eat here again? Or course!

Visited here on Saturday. We had some lunch and a couple of drinks here during the rugby. I wished I could have stayed longer but we had plans later that evening. Looking forward to visiting again.
