We ate in the restaurant whilst staying recently. A little strange trying to get a seat how the bar & restaurant is laid out - but it was busy & we were treated very well once seated. Decent food, wine & very good value. The rooms for the hotel part were also very nice, with a good wifi service. Great... More

Wow ... Has this place changed from a cosy converted house into a most warm and welcoming location with overnight accommodations. We called in on our way to the Airport and being hungry we ordered steak- each different. Rump, fillet and Rib eye were all beautifully cooked and delivered with a smile ... Our visitor was over the moon. Would... More

It has been about 5 years since I have been to the Ballyrobin, then it was a lovely cosy country pub, with 6 rooms. Now it has been enlarged to 21 rooms and a treatment room. The things that has remained constant, are the fantastic food and excellent service. We called in late morning after some business in Belfast, and... More

A fantastic menu, all locally sourced, including a big selection for vegetarians too. There is nothing I disliked about the food or the restaurant. The breakfasts are very reasonable and the dinner is exquisite. You could be sitting in a Michelin star restaurant, it's that good! If you're staying close by, treat yourself and book a table...

We were staying locally and chose the restaurant as a result of good reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was excellent, tasted very nice, was well presented and, what really made it for us, the staff were extremely efficient but also genuinely friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. It is just a shame that is 200 miles... More
