The place is a little to crowded. Some very loud music is played, making it hard to understand each other and making it impossible to have a decent conversation. The place looks more like a nightclub than a pub at this moment. The selection of beers is a bit limited. This place is the most expensive bar of today. There are better bars to attend to when you are in Dublin.

Dark wood an even more dark wood. A fine traditional pub for sure. The upstairs bar was closed, so my rating is for the downstairs "steakhouse" 13 taps and about 60 bottles. Draught beers from Carlow, Trouble Brewing, Metalman, 5 Lamps and Galway Hooker. Not bad at all. Informative bartender too. (Visited February 17th 2016)

When you enter this place, it looks more like a restaurant, but head upstairs to a good selection of beers. This place had something laidback about it, slow music, even the waiters walked as they were sleepwalking. Dark traditional English pub interior with some very old and worn floorboards.

The original craft beer pub but one iíve never felt entirely at home in, even with the removal of the communal tables. Probably the sports screens and big groups. Good enough selection of beers at slightly higher prices both on tap and bottle. A few casks again here. The food however is very good, especially if you like beef. Staff not always aware what beers are on (especially downstairs) so take a look at the taps yourself. They do get a good range of seasonals in however.

Located conveniently close to the Temple Bar area of Dublin, just in front of the Christ Church Cathedral. This place has a sleek modern feel to it, both in the downstairs stakehouse and the upstairs bar. Away from the Temple Bar crowds you can have a decent pint in a quitter environment here. No live music, decent selection of ~10 craft regulars and 6-7 rotating specials. Nothing crazy but good Irish micro representation. Prices in line with the area, did not try the food. I think Iíd be back more for the stakes or the Irish whisky tasting tray than for the beer alone.

Beautiful restaurant with a trendy beer hall upstairs, which was packed on a Friday night. Iíve rarely had a better steak, and the service in the restaurant was impeccable and personal. The vibe in the upstairs was rather cold and unwelcoming. I had one beer and left.

Situated opposite Christ Church Cathedral, quite close to Leo Burdock fish and chips shop (the location on the map is wrong), the place is very nicely decorated but also too sleek and souless, the service professional but indifferent, the beer list, at the upstairs beer hall is quite superb. Iím not sure if i really like this place.

This is a funny place, not sure how to rate it fairly actually. Exterior and interior dťcor are absolutely fantastic, classy, comfortable, charming, canít say enough about the look of it. The food menu is equally wonderful, had a 10oz ribeye with chips and was cooked perfectly, the rest of the group had different mains and they all loved them. Hereís where this place gets weird, the waiters were from Eastern Europe and couldnít care less about beer, whatís on draft, whatís in the cooler, and whatís worse is they got annoyed with me for asking, like I should just order a Guinness and be happy about it. Beer hall is being renovated, so Iíll have to come back to see that when its done. Overall this is a wonderful place that I will definitely be back to, but Iíll talk directly to the barman first.

Not a bad place. Nice selection of draft and bottles, mostly Irish, English and Belgian. Nothing rare. Knowledgable staff. Good food.
