About the restaurant
Dead Centre is not a faceless corporation…milking the beer industry for all it’s worth. Instead, we’re a tight knit crew that relies on friends, family, colleagues and other breweries to create a product that we can truly be proud of.

Fresh, flavoursome and (wherever possibly) local ingredients are what give our beer it’s character. Cutting corners here is not an option at Dead Centre Brewing. We believe you get out what you put in…so only the best goes in.

We had the burger menu and they were absolutely stunning! The meat was top tier. Hopefully these come to the menu full time 🙈whiskey sour was divine. Always the best date night venue.

About the restaurant
An exciting new restaurant based in the heart of Naas, Co. Kildare. This is, as its name suggests, a neighbourhood restaurant — somewhere to relax and enjoy creative and delicious, flavour-driven, produced by previous Bib Gourmand achieved Head Chef Gareth Naughton and his team, and drinks in an elegantly easy-going setting. We aim to source and produce everything possible, right here in Ireland.

Having been told of the beautiful food in 50 50 Navan was really good to hear but when we heard and experienced ourselves the attention to presenting gluten free food was a fantastic bonus. Last night was our first visit but it will be our regular restaurant from now on. Excellent service from "Cal" thank you

Food lacked flavour..condiments were cheap and flavourless. Fabulous staff and pub but food disappoints for me compared to other restaurants in the area.
