Stopped of at Nesbitt Arms for lunch whilst out for a drive. It was Sunday but not too busy. We were seated very quickly with menu but then had a bit of wait before being asked if we'd like a drink even though there were plenty of staff. One or two were busy but a couple not sure what they... More

Stopped at Nesbitts for dinner during the cupan tae festival. Place was particularly busy but they had no problem finding us a table. Food was plentiful and tasty. Lots of nice places in Ardara, although this may be one of the nicest.

I brought my family out for dinner to this hotel. We were a party of four adults and four young children and booked in advance. We were given a table in an alcove which was a major plus as the children could make some noise and not be too disruptive! There was a good choice on the menu. As bar... More

Stayed in the hotel at Easter Sunday. Staff were friendly. The hotel was very understaffed when we were there but the staff worked hard so it didnt impact our stay. Hotel was motorbike friendly and provided secure parking in the back of the hotel. Ardara is a great town!

Had dinner here on two nights with family. Food was good, big helpings and the menu had a nice selection. Being a coastal town, a good array of seafood. Prices were a bit high but not too bad. Had a beer another evening but it was too quiet to stay. Staff were good and no delays. Recommend dropping in.
