    We love the place and we go there as often as we can, this time we had friends with us who had not been before and they loved it and said they would be back. We have never had a bad meal. Our only worry is we hear you will be moving so we hope the new venue will have the same charm and feel to it.

    The only place offering a decent shepherds pie. It was delicious! We went for the session as friends of ours were running it and that was great fun. Service from a real Irish waitress was excellent. The online booking service was straightforward. However, perhaps the online menu on the web page needs to be updated as my wife's initial choices were not available on the night. Overall, a great experience.

    I love this pub, great food with big proportions, Guiness on tap. Staff are friendly, awesome live irish band on Sunday night. I wish I lived closer. Need to book ahead as I've found it's pretty much impossible to walk in for a table seating.

    I've been dining at The Quiet Man for years. On this occasion, I was celebrating a special occasion with a friend. The pub is always bustling and busy, but this night was different. Unfortunately, our table was wedged between two of the roudiest, ill mannered, and vulgar parties I've ever experienced while dining out. Some people have naturally loud voices; others speak louder when there's music playing etc. These diners were SHOUTING, and obviously had no sense of restaurants being a shared environment. They made conversation impossible. My Maltese Terrier is better behaved.

    Food was average. I have had better food here before. Porterhouse steak was tough and had lots of gristle in it. The chips were tasteless and soggy. Had a side salad with my meal and there was no tomato in it.

    The Quite Man pub always delivers a great evening of delicious food and warming atmosphere. It has a separate dining room where meals can be enjoyed away from the lively drinking bar and Irish Trad music.The food is traditional Irish fare, hearty with generous portions - you won't go hungry!
