Friendly staff, good selection of well kept beers and a Thai menu that is so cheap it's not worth turning your own oven on. They even have large screen football on.... heaven

We went here to watch the Ireland rugby games, there's usually a nice crowd at the pub to enjoy the match. On top of this, there's a very pleasant asian lady who cooks authentic thai food here, which is delicious and very reasonably priced. Looking for some decent grub, and a few match pints, look no further than the Woodbine

Won't say much as I'm still a bit numb. Friends were visiting from Australia and as we had had a great meal just a matter of metres down the road, I suggested that all ten of us went to what used to be a fantastic pub. Little did I know the egg that was to be on my face moments... More

Totally and utterly in shock. Asked to leave upon entering this nice pub at 10pm on a Friday night because they were "closed" despite still serving the rest of the drinkers. Baffled as to why I would have been told this as I was sober as a judge and just popped in to join friends, I was later told that... More

Woodbine provides you with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, with friendly attentive services and great value for money. The tunes combine the ambiance of the wooden walls with candle light and you can see genuine, interesting people around having a laugh. All in all, Woodbine is the sort of place you want to go to after a hard day at... More

Came across the Woodbine by chance and I have to say, I'm happy I went in. Staff is super friendly and knowledgeable (RE the ales). They have a very nice selection of ales and lager. Tried the Thai food (excellent by the way) and freshly made. Been there a few times since the first visit and loving it more &... More

I always find the Woodbine very welcoming, both by the staff and the locals. It’s got a well stocked and varied bar; the food is also very good. The décor is quite funky (read the numerous signs on the walls if you get a chance). It certainly is one of the best, if not the best place to drink around... More
