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.

                                                    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.

                                                    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.

                                                    Great food, prepared with care and attention to detail. They could have just done basic pub food, but they took it up a notch.

                                                    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.

                                                    Nice pub, with a good but limited food menu. They have some lovely cocktails and some craft beer.

                                                    One of the best burgers I've had in so long. Cocktails were 10/10 too. Couldn't fault service. Same with the actual place rhe decor and the vibe was just spot on. Will be back!!

                                                    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.

                                                    Very good staff, nice environment, excellent washrooms. The food was a little long in arriving but the staff deducted some drinks from our bill without us having to say anything, nice touch.

                                                    Food was overpriced for what you got- the menu on here is very different to the one they have in the bar, very limited. Server was lovely she helped us as much as she could just food a bit expensive

                                                    Our first time to visit and we were highly impressed. The minute you enter you can see how clean the place is. We were greeted by a lovely girl (Lauren is the name on receipt) she looked after us for the 2 hours we were there. The food and drinkers were presented excellently and tasted just as good. The Teelings ice cream is to die for. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend it. We were a party 4 all very happy customers.

I left a note on the booking that it was my boyfriends birthday and the waiter brought out cheesecakes and birthday drinks to us it really made the night for us! Thank you so much, we will definitely be back! :)

                                                    Excellent friendly staff. the burger was so so so tasty. I skipped the truffle mayo and just got plain mayo but still it was delish.
