A few months ago I slated the 12th for their breakfast (on their facebook) but said we would go back for family dinner in the pub. Overall I was happy with this experience, fish and chips were very nice and adult portion was a good size. Kids portion was fine for a small child say under ten. Plaice was nice...

I visited this restaurant with friends for a little Christmas shindig. What an ambiance and setting. Beside the canal with a wonderful smoking area. What I have to compliment is the service of a lovely (but cheeky ha ha) young man Sean. Very welcoming and even sat with us for a chat for a short while. 5/5 would definitely recommend.

Highly recommend the restaurant, service was excellent, food fantastic. Generous portions for starters, a little less so on the mains, could have...

We popped in for lunch recently and had a lovely time. We were warmly greeted by the staff and shown to a lovely booth. We had a glass of red each, I went for the Beef and Guinness pie and my husband went for the fish and chips - both of us really enjoyed our meal - the presentation and...

I am not sure what longer term plans the new owners have for the bar restaurant here but given the mixed reviews in recent days/ weeks they appear not to be too concerned about the mixed/ negative reviews being filed here. Their on line menu is not what is available when you get there, the latter being less attractive and...

Went to this place for lunch. > Car park isn't attractive > Lots of staff and only a dozen customers (should have been a tell tale sign before we sat down) > Food was eatable only that I was hungry > way to pricey for lunch Won't be going there again.

We had visited the 12th Lock in September after they re-opened and had a reasonable lunch at the time but service was slow - seemed to be a lot of inexperienced staff but maybe thats just when they opened up? Anyway we decided we'd leave it a while before we went back and then form a fresh opinion. We dropped...

Myself & the hubby just had lunch here. I'd never been before it was done up & had heard good things. We both had the burger. It €16 when you add cheese & bacon. That's a lot for a burger but at lunchtime it's a crazy amount! But we expected great things so we waited for our food to come....
