Having been to Fitzpatricks in Lordship (outside Carlingford) I was disapointed, Johnnie Foxes was alittle tired looking, an very dusty, food was ok if you like fish, little other choice, The home made brown bread was lovely.

Finally visited Johnnie foxes pub today at 14:30, after years of saying I must go and after reading a report in the Irish independent recently regarding a loss in profits. But I was a bit disappointed to be honest and not surprised it has suffered. The starters were only average, main meals were delish I must admit, kiddies bolognaise was... More

It was very packed when we arrived and we were not going to stay for food as thought waiting time would be too long. We found a large room at the back with lots of seating and live music. We were seated quickly and our drinks order taken immediately. We did not have to wait long for food or drinks.... More

Stopped in here on the way home. There was so kind of adventure race or something on in the area and they were incredibly busy. However we were quickly seated. The service was very quick. The mussels are delicious. Also had salmon which was mouth watering. Boyfriend had the chicken. Highly recommend a visit. Excellent staff & no waiting around.

We were visiting Ireland and were told we had to come here. It's such an amazing pub with so much history. Took us at least 30min to look around all the interesting things dotted around. Also tried Guinness for the first time and it was it was lovely. Staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Worth a visit.

Read previous reviews on here and they give a great description. This place is excellent, it has a great atmosphere, lots of memorabilia and cool items. Portion sizes were huge and definitely made up for the expected slightly expensive pricing. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with the other patrons and the waiting staff were great. We didn't book, somehow got... More

Although it looks like some of the signs posts to Johnnie Fox's have been turned the wrong way, when we eventually found it..it didn't disappoint! Full of intriguing and quirky memorabilia..look out for the table which once was a tractor with accompanying tractor seat stools. Great 'diddly dee' music, good food (we had ribs (too many to finish!), fish pie... More

We went on a Sunday night and it really was a great night out. The food, service, music and Irish dancing were truly superb. The cost was 52.50 Euros per person for a great 3 course meal. We just couldn't fault anything and a great choice of beers as well. Word of advice though if you are travelling from Dublin... More
