Stayed for 1 night on our NI tour. The room was small, but cosy and clean and the bed was comfy. Wifi was good and available in the room. We arrived late and the restaurant was closed, nevertheless we were offered drinks and a sandwich in the bar. The staff were very friendly and the full Breakfast was excellent. We... More

Called with a group of girlfriends for lunch recently and we had a nice leisurely time. The area we were seated in was pub style and a little dated but we got a nice table overlooking the sea, the dining is casual and the staff are friendly and the service is prompt. The food we ordered came quickly and was... More

Paid £110 for a room with a double and single bed. Thought I'd entered into the past, decor looked as if it hadn't been touched since the 1970's! There was no heating in my room, me and my 2 children had to sleep in the double to keep warm! I couldn't drive my car, so had no choice but to... More

Called in on a Sunday lunchtime. We were driving up the coast and wanted a good meal in surroundings that were friendly and not overpriced. Had the roast turkey and ham. Really nice and staff friendly and helpful. Only down point is the tables are literally screwed to the floor.

The welcoming helpful staff and the really comfy bed more than made up for the slightly dated decor. My expectations of the place were exceeded & I'd recommend it as a value for money stop over in a beautiful location

Great spot for traditional, homely meals at a reasonable price. Portions are generous and well presented. Service is always quick. Staff are all lovely and very attentive. Cosy atmosphere especially if your lucky enough to get a table by the fire. Perfect on a cold winters night!

Good sound meal here if a little skimpy on the portion sizes though food was sound. Bit of a old style establishment with dated bar area and staff lurking around the bar area which was a little unsettling however friendly enough bunch especially the one guy who could rattle off the numerous choices of menu like a machine gun !...

This is a nice stopping point on a drive round The Antrim Coast. The approachable, welcoming Dave "Boy" McAuley is often toiling away in the restaurant and is a very down to earth and conversational. The view from the restaurant, over The North Channel, is glorious on a warm, sunny, clear day. Good selection of dishes on the menu, and... More
