Expert review of The Exchequer

Dublin’s favourite new gastropub, The Exchequer is home to terrific food, music and cocktails.

A weekend hotspot, The Exchequer has been scooping up awards for its pub food, and it's a brilliant place to kick start a night out. There’s a live DJ on Thursday and Friday evenings, and the crowd is young and trendy. It's great fun.

Food and drink: 

Professional bar staff take their cocktails seriously here and it shows. The award-winning menu sticks to the popular trend of the moment – quality fresh food, simply cooked and well presented. Superior pub food.

Recommended dishes: 

Try the Ling (fish) and chips with the duck terrine as a starter. There are great salads too.

Ambience: 

The restaurant at the back offers comfy leather armchairs and sofas, while the pub area at the front kicks off at weekends with funky music and a trendy, party going crowd. It’s surrounded by popular Dublin restaurants and bars so there’s a steady flow of custom to keep things interesting.

Service: 

It has upmarket service standards for a city centre pub.

Location: 

In the middle of Dublin’s liveliest bars and clubs, it's off George's Street.

Price advice: 

There are Sunday brunch dishes for less than 10 euros, or the traditional Sunday roast has won loyal fans. 

Tables to book: 

Book a table at the back with leather armchairs.

Other useful branches: 

The same menu is available in the Central Hotel library bar upstairs.
