Good, Enjoyable Meal

I took my son there for a birthday meal last Saturday night. The starters (Pate for him and Brie for me) was lovely. For main we had the Large Cod and Chips and the Sirloin. The steak was cooked to perfection and the chips were very hot, light and fluffy, but a bit crunchy on the outside: just the... read more

Brilliant atmosphere, music and food. Weekend specials differ each weekend. Really delicious. Thanks for a great time. Best guiness in NIreland. Staff so friendly and helpful. Musicians and singers amazing.

Hugely disappointing visit. Food was awful. Steak was ridiculously small and thin. Better chips in McDonald's. Chicken was dry tasteless, rubbery, and the presentation was bland. Looked like a big orange lump. If you are in this area stop for a pint maybe. Don't eat. Drive onto Balloo House a few miles up the road where food is so much... More

Having written many reviews on my travels, both near and far, I thought I should give one of our local pubs a worth while mention.. We decided to visited the Dufferin Arms last weekend as we hadn't been there in awhile and as usual we weren't disappointed, the staff are always upbeat and friendly, the Guinness in my opinion is...

We visited Killyleagh in the summer of 2014 and stayed nearby. This pub was highly recommended to us for its food and beer, atmosphere and welcome. We weren't left wanting either. The bar staff and locals were friendly and hospitable and the service and food were terrific. We'd love to return to Killyleagh one day and, if we do, we'll... More

I absolutely love this place for a bite to eat. The specials change on a daily basis and everything is cooked from fresh (which is really important to me). The seafood chowder is in a league of its own. Full of fresh fish and flavour. The staff are always so friendly and attentive. Keep doing what you're doing guys.

We took my brother-in-law for a birthday lunch to the Dufferin Arms and we were, as usual, really impressed. The staff were so pleasant and attentive and the food was great, my husband and brother-in-law always go for the fish and chips and never regret it, I would say indeed they look forward to it!!

Really disappointed in main courses. Greasy scampi and side orders of black chips were nt good at all. Nice pub though and friendly staff.
