I would just like to thank all the staff at The Old Inn, they could not have been more a tentative, they where fantastic, the food was very good, rooms very clean. An all round blinding experience. A large number of our party suggested making it an annual event, they where so impressed.

We love coming here for impromptu lunches or dinner and drinks. We haven't stayed yet but I think we will this year - even if it's 'just down the road!' Great to hear of upcoming renovations to the function room and back lobby next year! Service great and staff very friendly. Only point I would make is the toilets might... More

Oh dear, have eaten here many times but took my mother for tea on a week night. We did fancy anything from the sizzler special menu and ordered a prawn open sandwich and chilli chicken, both where unremarkable. The salad accompanying the open was very unimaginative, wheaten dry and hard and coleslaw tasted like Tesco value! The chilli chicken was... More

Came with my family of 7 for a family meal last Sunday at 530pm but we were disgusted yet again by the standard of service that we got from the staff & management! There is something seriously wrong with the restaurant in the Crawfordsburn Inn when you wait well over 45 mins for your main meal &30 mins for your... More

We called into the restaurant on the way through from Bangor to Belfast. You forget how much you love this please until you walk in the front door. It may be summertime but there's always a fire lit, and the smell of that wood burning just makes you feel warm! We got a table, just beside the door down a... More

The first night we had dinner in the bar and it was exceptional, food was excellent and staff very attentive. The wedding day was first class, the wedding was quite small but that didn't matter to the... More

Really enjoyed our two night stay here, even though there was a wedding on the hotel was not particularly nosy during the evenings. Lovely room, and food excellent. Staff very attentive, Joanna on reception was lovely, service with a smile goes a long way.
