Lovely food and drinks, great staff and enjoyed Vintage lounge upstairs after. The Central is a great spot in the middle of Navan and we will be back.

I was on a night out in Navan with a few friends, we heard good things about The Central and decided to try it. Our barman Cormac made us some fanstatic cocktails, and helped me in making my decision (would usually stick to the Guinness). He recommended a Margarita, which didn't disappoint. Good atmosphere and great location. Will return if... More

The rooftop beer garden is absolutely gorgeous! The staff was really friendly and they have some pretty good deals aswell! Cocktails were to die for, I just wish the pitcher was bigger! We would definitely go back for a night out and would love to try the food here, it's supposed to be gorgeous!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch in the restaurant. 3 adults & 2 children. I had the slow cooked pork belly, which was really tasty, very tender, but very filling! The staff were very pleasant and attentive. The only small negative is the children's pizzas were very small. Both finished them quickly and had some of the adults meals too.

Great food and awesome atmosphere. Great pint of Guinness! We watched from the upstairs terrace and it was warm enough with the overhead heaters. Place has plenty of different seating options and a full service restaurant.

I used to love the pulled pork sandwich until I tried it this month and it tasted completely different, a bit vinegary I would say.
