Did The Job For Breakfast

Visisted here for breakfast after an early morning flight to Belfast. The menu wasn't particularly great for a vegetarian who doesn't like egg but they did have toast and tea. That's what I have for breakfast at home so it did the job. Overall it seemed like a decent place and the waitress was... read more

Dropped in here on the off chance after a day out. Were given a table and menus right away. Although the place was very busy and we did have to wait after ordering it was well worth it. The food was excellent and the staff and service great. Would definitely come back but if planning to come in the evening... More

We had a super brunch (the scrambled eggs just melted) in this very nice restaurant that blends olde world and modern. We were a big family group with children and it was great for everyone - but the best thing was the service. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the lovely young woman on reception searched for my... More

There was a cosy atmosphere, interesting decor and a sincere, friendly welcome upon my first ever visit to Ballyrobin today. The menu was great and thus hard to choose from, and seafood lovers would have had an even harder time making up their mind. We shared a delicious goat's cheese fritters with a pear and star anise purée starter. Heavenly.... More

They have a set menu, 2 or 3 courses but couldnt find anything i liked, partner also struggled. Partner ordered the burger, was bland and dry. I had the... More

We called in here only for a drink as it was too early to go home. The small, cosy bar is welcoming and well stocked. Prices are good value for money and the staff are attentive without being overbearing. There is no sports channel blasting in your ear, nor loud music, just a few tables and peace to have a... More
