Restaurant review: Tasty fare that comes at a price in the Coombe

There's some great cooking going on at Spitalfields in the Coombe, but it's not the cheapest

Spitalfields in the Coombe: some great cooking going on, but it’s not the cheapest Pic: Fergal Phillips


25 The Coombe, Dublin 8


Chef: Stephen McAllister

The relations we’ve arranged to meet for dinner in Spitalfields are already there when we arrive, and are looking happy as pigs in muck in seats just inside the front door. They live very close to this place, the former Shanahan’s pub in the heart of the Coombe in Dublin 8, and reckon they’ll be spending a fair bit of time here.
