The Old Schoolhouse Restaurant
Downstairs in the bar you can sit and enjoy a great pint of Guinness, watch all sporting events on our big screens, take in some live music, enjoy a burger or steak from our barfood menu or simply just sit outside in our beautiful all year round beer garden.
Bit disappointed when we ordered Rjoca wine and discovered they didn’t have it, other than that food & service was good
Super food great value only thing was the noise level was very loud but there was a high table and that is expected but in no means turned us off.
Food was gorgeous but what really made it great was the staff. They were so efficient and friendly and dealt really well with my fussy-eater son. Will recommend to others.
The fillet steak was unreal, never had better one. We asked for nice table in the corner with a bit of privacy and we got one
The food I received was delicious but at our 6pm sitting there were a lot of things unavailable on the menu which was disappointing. The coffee machine only made americano coffees, which reduced the choices again. What we ordered instead was very good, but they weren't our first choices
Food and service was great good value I had visitors from Denmark thought it was excellent
Really enjoyed our evening at the Old Schoolhouse. Everything was perfect for our party of 10. The private room was ideal. We’v Been loads of times and will definitely be back.
Great meal as always. Love the relaxed atmosphere and the food choice for the early bird was excellent
As we walked up the steps a younger bouncer stopped me and said food was finished! I said it'd just rang and booked a table, he said they finished at 8:30?!?! Only for a was confident in what I'd done, I would've walked away!!
Generally it was very, very , very loud, we were sitting beside a party! We were sober after arriving from a delayed ferry ( from U.K. with 2 kids aged 8 & 12), and sitting beside a party!
We were happy to get a table and fed, but at a cost!! I ordered hake and I expected the skin to be crisp & it wasn't, bit overcooked too 😬! Other half had chicken supreme which was small but tasty & kids were happy with their meals! Service was generally ok, bit slow at times, but overall ok, I would recommend to friends, which I did later that night!!!
First time here in a long time and loved it. Food and service was excellent. Only quibble was the excessive noise from a group of adults celebrating a birthday party.
Will definitely be back. Thanks.
We have always enjoyed the Old Schoolhouse Restaurant but the service this time was not great. We were not asked would we like drinks, wine etc. The waitress was very slow in bringing a jug of water. We didn't get a bread basket which usually comes before your starter. We had to ask for it. It won't put us off coming back because the quality of the food is excellent.
Loved the atmosphere and the food! Good selection on the menu.
Had a really nice time. The food was excellent and the service ever so accommodating. Highly recommend.
This restaurant was highly recommended by quite,a few people however we were not impressed at a with either the food or service and therefore I would not recommend it to anyone I know
Really enjoyable evening . Good food and Good service. The only area that could possibly be improved might be the decour , although the restaurant is separate to the pub it still feels a little dated. But I will definitely return and would recommend without hesitation.
Great service and great food. We didn't realise the restaurant menu was different from the bar menu, it was also a bit more expensive. Overall, a great experience and would go back again, staff very friendly and no long waits on food :)
Table was ready on time service was excellent and very accommodating with the food allowing us order food not on menu .eill defo be back
Food was lovely and 2 ladies looking after us were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble.
Fabulous food as always & the most pleasant staff! Couldn’t do enough for us! Always our first choice when going for food!
Excellent service,food,value. Will definitely be back again soon.
We had a fabulous evening. The food, service and atmosphere was brilliant! We had a very enjoyable experience and will definitely be back in the future!
Mrs for two, fab food, loads on the plate..
Friendly staff. Good value..
Overcharged on first bill. When reissued was overcharged again, waiter couldn't understand the issue. Senior staff should manage bills. Food was OK, nothing special.
Lovely food and great value. Staff are very friendly
We were upstairs in the restaurant which is as one would expect quieter than the bar downstairs. The service was warm and friendly, my dish of lamb rump with fondant potato, pancetta and peas was delicious. My husband had pork chops on the menu, however only one chop on the plate, his was delicious too but not as good as my lamb.
Mains cold for all at table and slow to come out starters good
We ere greeted immediately on arrival and shown to a table. The staff were courteous and efficient and our order was taken promptly. The roast beef was ordered, medium rare, well done and medium. Everything arrived as ordered! The vegetables weren't overcooked and it was a very enjoyable meal. The bread appetiser was tasty and we enjoyed the soup greatly. The prawn starter was a very generous portion of prawns and altogether delicious. We thought it was very good value for the 2 courses. The waitress made sure our water jug was constantly replenished. Very enjoyable meal.
Delicious food - probably the best food in Swords.
Everything was very nice but one girl who served us out of the few was a bit moody and my friend noticed she made faces when we ordered.
Otherwise the rest of the staff was friendly and nice it’s a great place food was very very good.
Probably we will be back in the future!
The food is well worth it, the staff are friendly. The service is very good. For good food, a drink and some live music downstairs afterwards it would be a great night.
Our first choice for a meal out in Swords, great quality, ample choice,good portions, pleasent atmosphere and best beer garden in Dublin for drinks afterwards.
I love the place. Great food. Friendly staff. Lovely atmosphere. Gets a big thumbs up from me. Ticks all the boxes! ♥
Looking forward to returning for another great dinner. Service, food, drinks and atmosphere were amazing!
Food was lovely, staff very friendly. Restaurant was cold
Upon arrival gave my name to staff member.Was not brought to table we were just pointed in the direction of it. I asked twice where it was and eventually was brought to it. As it was for my son's confirmation was not impressed as to where we were put. We were under the stairwell I felt we were not belong to the pub. I asked could we be seated else where I was told there was confirmations in the other areas. This annoyed me as I had put on my booking it was for my son's confirmation. As the staff member was walking away muttered under her breath jesus. I didn't say anything as I wanted it to be a nice afternoon lunch for my son. I couldn't fault the food and the value for money.
Fantastic service from staff and very accomadating
Service terrible. During the meal the waitress ask my friend if he finished eating where he still was eat, we all was in shock, on top of that we were inform tyhat we have to leave the table as is next reservation in 0.5h , thats the table is book only for max 2h- where is the information??? We meet in there to celebrate and we were pushed out. On top of that food so-so. Finaly we pay our bill and we went downstairs to the bar- food delicious, service perfect. So i donot recommend restaurant, but i do recomend the bar. The booking online should be improved where you can pick the restaurant or the bar.
Good food, good service good atmosphere.
Enough choice for everyone including fussy children.
Good food. Good value. Staff and very friendly and helpful
Nice atmosphere , friendly staff and the lamb was cooked to perfection
