It was crowded so a little claustrophobic. I had to eat at the bar so that didn't help. Food was nice though and not too expensive.

Went here for a bite to eat on Saturday while out shopping, the food was great, we got an all day breakfast and a club sandwich, which was excellent. This is a really nice pub to go to for a few drinks, always good atmosphere, I would like to eat here again to try the tapas.

Came here for some food on Sunday and was really disappointed. I had high expectations for the food as it is usually really good, the soup was not warm enough, the Cajun chicken baguette was dry and poorly presented. A friend ordered fish and chips which was a piece of frozen fish and pretty tasteless. Most certainly not worth the money we paid for it.
This is a pity as its a nice pub, good Guinness and friendly staff but the quality of the food is very poor, would not be eating here again.

Came here today on a voucher and it was really enjoyable. The Gin Palace is a lovely pub with a nice atmosphere. The staff are really attentive and the food is extremely tasty. It's the perfect pub to relax in the middle of the city and to enjoy some nice food and a lovely pint of Guinness. I would definitely come here again, with or without a voucher. Highly recommended.

Not totally positive of date might have been week before but should have written it earlier and promised it would start with "Top Marks"..... Visited with 3 girl friends for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks. Weather so bad we all delayed and therefore when we went to eat it was just after 8.00pm. The first waitress just said no kitchen closed so we decided to have one more drink and move on. Our waiter was taking our order and when we mentioned that we had only got comfy and it was a shame we had to go he asked why. We told him we needed to get something to eat (by this time it was 8.15pm, kitchen closed at 8.00pm), and he said "quick, do you know what you want?" Had not even seen menu but asked if they did burgers and he said yes what would you like on it? I said anything going, two of the others wanted this that and the other,(all different) one a sandwich etc. He never wrote a thing down but went off and soon we had our orders perfect. Fair play to him. That's the way to do business. As a result we stayed there for the night and all our money went to the "Gin Palace" because of him. If we had listened to the first waitress we would have left hour before. P.s. I love the way they have the Gin Sampler Tray. A great idea.

Had a voucher for either here or the Grand Central - much preferred the Gin Palace. We arrived during the Hurling Final, so it was very busy and quite noisy - which wasn't a problem. Ordered two main courses - half roast chicken and cajun chicken baguette, the half roast chicken was probably the better of the two, and two desserts - lemon cheesecake and apple pie, both were delicious. All in all a nice pub meal. Would definitely eat here again, especially if we got another voucher - although prices quite reasonable.

Ate here using a voucher after the Ireland v France match,
i had the Pollo Al Ajillo (Garlic marinated chicken fillet reduced in a creamy white wine sauce and served with freshly baked bread) for starter, it was far too heavy to enjoy and i thought a little bland, I proceeded to have the 8oz burger for main and be in no doubt it was tasteless.
My husband had the Duck spring rolls and half cooked ckn. The Duck spring rolls were overpowered by the accompyaning sauce and the chicken was as dry as if it was cooked for days, not at all an enjoyable meal, The only thing that made it bearable was that we had a voucher so it was cheap ent, wont be eating here again
