Pub
Welcome to Dublin's newest bar, in one of it's most historic areas. Enjoy the best of Dublin pub fayre while nursing a pint of the black stuff or perhaps a more sophisticated cocktail. Whatever takes your fancy, at Tenters we were born to serve. The original Tenters bar has stood on this same corner of Mill Street and Blackpitts since the 1920’s right amongst the local linenmakers and distillers for which the area was known.

    Not a pub. Just a run of the mill standard restaurant. To call itself a gastropub is misleading. Menu is a typical decent restaurant, a bit of a mix and match. Their social media strategy is working as it comes up high when you look for “best pubs”. We fell for it and decided to give it a try. Not bad for your neighborhood place and the service is indeed outstanding but nothing worth even a minor detour. Please ask to correct their description. Be honest!!!!

    I was skeptical when our waiter recommended chicken tenders as one of the best dishes. How different can they really be? Frankly the best tenders I’ve ever had, particularly because of the chipotle dipping sauce they provide. Amazing!

    A real gem in Dublin 8. Food was amazing with some tasty beers on draft and a good selection of cocktails. Great music and some good tv screens to watch sports on. If you are a D8 local or just passing through pop In you won’t be disappointed!

    Terrible service. We initially waited 15 minutes for our order to be taken, despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't busy. When our order was taken, I asked for a spirit that they said they didn't have. I then asked for another one and they said they didn't have that either and everything was on the menu. We were only given a food menu that just had wine and cocktails on it, and not a drinks menu. When we were given the drinks menu, they did in fact have both of the spirits I asked for. Not short staffed but everyone stayed behind the bar making themselves look busy - cleaning cutlery when people were waiting for orders to be taken and to be served. Again, the restaurant was not busy. Only two waiters actually tended to serving but they were rarely on the floor and nobody checked in on us after our food was served. For such an expensive menu, we expected the service to be good. Although a well presented restaurant, the poor service ruined the ambience as people were looking around, trying to get the attention of a waiter. Most people ended up going up to the bar to get the attention of one of the many people making themselves look busy there. We were additionally poorly seated. On a hot day in May, we were seated beside a very hot fire, despite there being many other tables available. Overall a poor experience. The restaurant had such potential but it was ruined by the service.

    Tenters is known for their diner pies, with a light puff pastry topping, fresh and different daily. Fish and Chips is very good, nice thin batter topping, they use haddock vs cod, which I like. Nice diner Caesar Salad. Burgers a great

    Seated at our reservation time. Then sat for 20 minutes before our server arrived. They were not busy, just poorly managed. Food order was completely messed up. Had to ask for water, napkins, and silverware. Food was mediocre and not worth the wait or money. We had steaks, fish & chips, chicken, and salad. Skip this place and eat at any pub; better service, better food, better pours, better value for money.

    The food was really good. The menu was fairly short but I prefer that ... it usually means the dishes are perfected and those that we ate were. Prawns to start were great and had an amazing ham hock pie which was just amazing. I'll be back there.

    Lovely spot, love the decor and the place. I would come back, however the menu was small, not many options, i would make the menu bigger. But iblove thr fact that we were able to listen to our conversation noise levels were great and tables are spacious.
