Took over an hour for us to order/receive drinks. Only had time for one order. When we eventually got our order half of it was missing and trying to get staff attention from our table meant some of us were waiting for 20 mins again for drinks. A couple of staff had said they would check and didn’t return so we had to ask another staff member. When we asked for another round staff explained that last orders were already in. It was 22:20. We were also wanting to order food (we had expected to get food and left feeling hungry) and staff didn’t come back to us to take our order after saying they would. The place was absolutely freezing also. Normally really enjoy the jailbird but this time not so much.
We had a brilliant night with the Rosies cakes party
A great venue, and fantastic service especially from a lady named Paula! My friends and i felt so safe Regarding the regulations for covid 19, and the cocktails are delicious! Will be returning again soon
Was so impressed with how the staff were following all the guidelines to the highest standard. Trays were constantly sanitized, hands were sanitized after every drink order and handles in the toilets were also throughly cleaned regularly. Felt very safe and all the staff were extremely helpful.
Service and atmosphere was fantastic in tough circumstances
Great service and staff were very welcoming and made us feel safe with the COVID-19 regulations. Definitely would recommend!
Great nights craic
The safest bar in Cookstown for covid protection while still feeling like a normal night out
Our waitress was very friendly and wore her shield continuously throughout our time in the bar. Unfortunately, some of the bar staff who chose to wear a mask weren't wearing them correctly - pulled down so his nose was exposed. Then another hugged a friend in the bar so socially distancing was breached. Also, another group came over to our table, complete strangers, grabbing our hands and generally hanging around. I had to tell them to stay away, they shouldn't be mingling, they should stay in their own group. Perhaps more floor staff could keep an eye on things like this to make customers feel safer during their time out. Good night though and great service. Lovely venue in every respect.
This place is simply amazing! You definitely would not think you were sitting in Cookstown. No place like it in the North!! Will definitely be back soon!!
A group of us attended last Saturday. Had the best service from a bar lady called Paula (blonde hair). Couldn't of asked for anything more.
Great service and atmosphere. Will definitely be back
