I always find the staff very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Book in advance, especially at weekends, or you may be disappointed!

Went for Sunday Dinner & no beef or cod goujons left... less then a teaspoonful of stuffing with the chicken so I take it that they ran out of that also... as always the staff and atmosphere were fantastic but food not as good as usual.

The MPB pub is a great place to have a party, casual dining or a friendly pint. Super atmosphere with excellent music up and downstairs in the foothills of the Dublin mountains
