We only went in for a coffee but when we say the plate of beautiful fish delivered to the table beside us we just had to have "WHAT HE'S HAVING". Crispy battered Cod. Great chips, mushy peas and onion rings. Sounds simple but the quality was as good as a 5* restaurant. Costing £9 it was a fabulous meal. So... More

And the food is delicious using good local produce, Dundrum Bay muscles and home made seafood chowder are my favourites and lets not forget the Ulster fry. Can't... More

I've been coming here for over 30 years. Food always good. Service and atmosphere good too. Free internet and they don't mind my son and I having a pint and using our laptops. Seamus still behind the bar and always polite and friendly. Young staff excellent too and watch and anticipate your needs

Popped in a few times during our annual trip back to Castlewellan. Shamus was still working the bar and the Guinness is as good as ever! The place was just being painted outside and is looking very smart.

Stayed in the Kings Inn for the 2014 Newcastle airshow. The staff could not have been friendlier and gave us some great local tips which made the weekend. I would definitely stay here again. Very nice family run hotel, with good clean rooms. Ronan
