A few dinner ideas for your next night out...

Old Spot

Here's a little something for all you pub grub fans: two Dublin spots have just made Michelin's 'Eating Out in Pubs’ Guide for 2017.

The illustrious gastropub list included 32 places from around Ireland, with Down coming out as the best county for bar cuisine, with six of their pubs making the cut: Pheasant (Annahilt), Poacher’s Pocket (Comber), Parson’s Nose and Plough Inn (both in Hillsborough) Pier 36 (Donaghadee) and Balloo House (Killinchy).

Take a look below at Dublin's winners.

The Old Spot

Offering delicious food, quality wines, select craft beers, bespoke cocktails, this place aims for a "welcoming, sophisticated yet relaxed ambiance".

You can find The Old Spot at 14 Bath Avenue.
