Jess managed a school reunion we had in the Left Bank over the weekend and was very accommodating when our numbers fluctuated. The Left Bank delivered on all we asked for and is a great spot to have a drink and a catch up. It's a must visit for anyone who's spending some time in Kilkenny.

Let me start with desert, best sticky toffee pudding I have ever had. Friendly, helpful staff, keep going through the building its a maze of rooms. Our dinner was great, wonderful pub food, we felt comfortable and relaxed after being tourists for the day.

We have been here every time we visit Kilkenny. Myself and my wife love going here for drinks after dinner and actually have never eaten here but must try it some time. It has a great atmosphere and I've also been here on a stag night which we went upstairs for and it was great fun so it kind of... More

Very good selection of cocktails and all that I tried were excellent (particularly the Appletini and the Berry Fizz). The Guinness was exactly as it should be; creamy and delicious.

We popped in for lunch, ordered pork roulade and a steak burger. The pork was dry with pepper sauce which wasn't a nice accompaniment. Ordered a glass of white wine which might as well have been vinegar. Unfortunately the wine glass had lipstick stains on it but the staff dealt with it well and were friendly. The burger was nice...
