“Food was to die for!

Myself and my friend came for dinner here last week. We didn’t have a reservation but the lovely manager squeezed us in. The food was to die for especially the chowder. We were so impressed with the staff who were all so friendly even though they were very busy! Special mention to the bar staff who recommended me a lovely whiskey to finish off my meal, Bushmills 10. The atmosphere was great and the place was spotless. We are already planning our next trip.”

“Wonderful meal and service”

We had a marvelous lunch here. The choices were varied. In our group we had the cod, a veggie dish, Turkey and several had duck. Everyone was delighted with their meals. Desserts were all excellent as well, especially the berry tart. Service was great, with attentive and pleasant servers. Close to the shop street, this is surely a winner. “
