Great people, great music, great pints. Fantastic food and nice for watching sports too. Nice and cosy during the winter with open fires, and a little bit crazy during the summer out in the slick garden area, which is a hidden gem!

I stopped here while staying in Birr and found it to be one of the most beautiful pubs I've ever been in. It's a historic Victorian pub with chestnut wood walls and bar (thus the name 'Chestnut'), and it has gold chandeliers and lots of...More
