This was the worst meal that we have had in long and many's a day. We hadn't eaten here for a few years and had decided to revisit on the strength of recommendations and decent reviews. How disappointed we were. The writing was on the wall when we were presented with the slightly expanded bistro menus (i.e. bar snacks) as... More

An impromptu visit to the local hotel provided us with a very pleasant evening. An efficient service offering steak fish and the usual alternatives. 6 or 7 starters and the same number of dessert choices. Supremely short wait between courses due to excellent service. A standard wine list but nothing that stands out. Special mention goes to the sticky toffee... More

I'll open by saying we eat at the Armagh City Hotel's Sunday carvery reasonably regularly and find it very good. However, I opted for their bar menu for a quick dinner for the kids and I at the weekend and thats what this review relates to. Firstly, if you had to wait on the staff to bring you menus you'd...

I visited the hotel yesterday evening for a catch up with 2 close friends, one of whom is a vegetarian. We decided to skip starters and just order mains. Myself and one friend ordered the lasagne, and my veggie friend ordered the vegetarian pasta (as this was the only veg choice on the menu). No complaints whatsoever with the food,... More

I think this is a little confusing as tripadviser have headed up,probably correctly, as Friary Restaurant when everyone would know it as Armagh city hotel retaurant. Steak dinner is also a bit of a misnomer as both chicken and salmon are available as alternatives. The staff are friendly and the food is good quality and well presented. A tip. If... More
