It was that noisy your staff got the order wrong took an age to be seated. I think you are trying to be too many things to too many people.

Very limited menu given despite an extensive online menu. Food came and was a bit cold. Nice ambience and a nice place for a drink, maybe give the food a miss

We came from Dublin on a couple night away
we were put upstairs without us asking to be and then when we asked for a cocktail we’re told that they don’t cocktails upstairs only downstairs so we asked can we be put downstairs that we mostly came for the cocktails as we seen them on the website and we were told no due to covid we had to be allocated upstairs
I asked if I could go to the downstairs bar and order them from there and we were also told no.

So very disappointed in that, food was lovely and the waitress was very nice.

Food was unbelievable. Service was excellent, very friendly and there was a member of staff checking in frequently ( but not too much) to see if we needed anything which was great. Place was super clean and tidy and would recommend 100% to anyone looking for a nice evening meal

Service was very slow. It took over 20 mins for someone to take our order and it would have been longer had we not have walked up and asked someone to take the order. We were in the restaurant over an hour before we had mains.

A group where seated at a table close to us while we had our order taken, they had their main meals before our starter arrived, they had finished and left before our mains arrived. Maybe we were just unlucky with the service but the food wasn’t good enough to make it worth the wait so we probably won’t return.

Terrible service from start to finish, the whole bar was freezing meaning we had to sit in our coats whilst eating our food. The ribs arrived cold, the fish was tasteless. The TV was incredibly loud, I could barely have a conversation with my parents at our table. Even when we told the waitress about our food, after she asked, she never even acknowledged the ribs arriving cold. Won’t be back

Ribs tasted like they had been cooked the day before and reheated. Anywhere you go now the meat falls off the bone. This was very tough. But other than that. Everything was perfect.

Overall a great bar, we had booked the booth for 4.30 and we planned to have the rest of our night here, around 5.30 we were advised another booking had just came in and we had to move before 7. This is fair enough, we were happy to go elsewhere but it would have just been nice to know that we had a time limit on our table. Overall we had a great time & great bar staff

We had booked Pug Uglys for 4 people for a special family occasion on Xmas Eve at 6.30pm. We booked via the Open Table App, which clearly stated that they had availability. We were even sent an email the day before to confirm, which we did! Then, on the day of the booking, the restaurant phoned us to say that they would be closing early and would save to cancel our booking! Why leave it until a couple of hours beforehand to cancel? They left us with little/no time to find a viable alternative, forcing us to change our plans! If you can’t fulfil a reservation, then don’t accept it in the first place! Simples! 🤷🏻‍♂️

Took my brother for his birthday, lunchtime food and drink. They showed football on multiple screens too which was great. Wasn't overly noisy as it was early. The vibe was great, workers were lovely and good craic to chat with. Food was very good for the price. Amazing selection of beers. Would definitely return!

We change the booking from 2 to 6 people which was easy enough to do. Only one issue, my dish (salmon on bed of noodles) had to be sent back twice as it wasn't cooked properly. I ended up choosing the fish and chips, which was lovely. The staff dealt with the issue very well and we didn't have to pay for the meal, plus we were given a round of drinks for free. Overall the experience was a good one. We just happened to be there when the N.Ireland football match was on, which was a bit distracting, however the The booked entertainment was great.

Unfortunately had to wait a little while for our table which was under a speaker.
However the staff were love and very accommodating of our 9yr old. He devoured the adult margarita pizza! The chicken and chorizo pie was delicious with fantastic pastry and the husband really enjoyed the special tacos.
The live music was great just too loud for the little man.
Would definitely go back as a couple maybe not with our son.
