Took my husband for his birthday as a surprise and somewhere different, as we used to go to oregano in Newtownabbey. He went for lunch menu and it was fine although portions very small. I went for the ribeye which looked lovely when it arrived but was totally inedible as it was mostly fat and grissle. Service and staff were... More

Limited menu. I had a rib eye steak which was perfectly cooked to order. Nicely presented. My companions had a variety of entrees. Crispy duck was overcooked. Wings reportedly very good. Cheese platter with port for dessert. Good! Service very good with attentive staff.

I ate here with a friend before a show at The Mac & it has to be one of the most overpriced & tasteless meals I've ever eaten. The salmon fillet I had was tiny & accompanied by a strange mixture of vegetables which completely ruined the taste of the salmon. Chips were extra & I ordered them to fill... More

Dropped into the potted hen for a quick bite to eat before a show in the mac and thought the hendog menu might hit the spot. I liked the interior, but there was only one couple in thee restaurant so the atmosphere here lacked a bit. Staff friendly and attentive, made recommendations from the menu and told us ordering and... More

We had dinner in the downstairs area and were welcomed and served by very friendly staff. The menu has individually created choices with a spicy zing. I had a 'special', a baked brill on crushed white beans with chilli flakes etc. As I was really hungry, I planned to order some chunky chips but the waitress said it was a... More

We visited The potted hen on a Saturday evening. We were seated down stairs. We found the menu very fussy so moved up to the Hen Dogs. The food was very good and so was the service. Although there was no atmosphere especially for a Saturday evening.
