We spent a great weekend based around this pub whilst attending the International Irish Fly Fishing Fair that is held at the Pub and the surrounding area. I has the best chowder i have tasted. Proper pub with nice food.

Situated in picturesque Killyleagh village, the Dufferin Arms provides excellent food at very good prices. We went on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. The menu provides a good range that will suit most tastes with a concentration on meat and seafood dishes. A restricted, but very adequate, range of affordable wines is also available if you... More

The food is excellent and there is a good ranging menu. They do Banquet nights which I would most definitely recommend. The food is to die for and the... More

Have visited this 'proper' pub before when visiting my family near by, and love it. The atmosphere is congenial and it is cosy and warm. Great Guinness, fabulous fish, and superb staff.

We loved the decoration in the Dufferin Arms. The food was fantastic- especially the mussels. The live bluegrass set was excellent.

The Dufferin is a traditional town pub. Good food, good Guiness, friendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere, and if you go at the right time good live music.

Liked the bar, the food and the service. Good attention to detail. Dining room was nice enough but could be more atmospheric. However, we would definitely eat here again. Try the mussels. Yum.

Good straightforward food and service. It's good to find that they run out of some dishes before the evening's out - shows its fresh not frozen. Characterful bar full of locals at the weekend with perfect Guinness .
