The food was excellent and enjoyed by all and Andrew from "Down Disco" provided great music for all. A not to be missed venue for any sort... More

My partner and I stopped in here on Friday after some extreme black Friday shopping, we were soaked, exhausted and starved! Although we hadn't booked a table the waitress was able to squeeze us in to a delightful little table. We were served by an older man who was extremely attentive and polite. The food was amazing, we've been here... More

We recently moved to the Carryduff area and my partner has frequented the bar quite often and enjoyed it, but I wanted to try it for food so we went for a meal on Friday past. We went to the bar for some drinks first, which is nice and cosy and the staff very pleasant. We then went for our... More

Chive mash was flavourless and saturated with grease from the chicken. One of the worst dishes I have ever tasted.. Husband and son had steaks which they tell me were excellent, chicken looked and...

Visited for a meal with friends for a catch up and had the special seafood dish could have licked the plate, delicious sauce and a great combination of fish. Have to point out that one of the party is vegan and he was given a choice of three dishes he choose a potato and mushroom curry and was very satisfied.... More
