Was staying at The Slieve Donard and went to The Percy French for dinner along with our 2 kids. The service was good but the food was disappointing - poor curry, dry chicken gougons with tasteless batter. The Scampi wasn't much better and sausages for one of the kids must have been cooked at least twice, all-in-all disappointing for the... More

We went there initially for a drink outside the bar as this afforded fantastic views of the Mournes and coastline. We returned a few hours later for Sunday lunch. Turkey, ham, stuffing and all the trimmings. Great service and the food was delicious. Worth a visit.

Loved the Percy French! Went there with some colleagues for an after-dinner drink. Service was good and we weren't hurried at all.

On a recent trip to Northern Ireland we stayed in the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle and had dinner in the Percy French. It was an excellent experience, beautiful food and the staff made us feel very special. Well done to all

We dined at the Percy French this weekend, having stayed at the Slieve Donnard resort for our anniversary. The food was superb and so reasonably priced. We'd have paid a lot more for the quality of the food so we were amazed when the bill came! The staff were lovely and fun and they made the whole dining experience a... More

We were shown to our table which was at the back of the restaurant overlooking the sea and we had some great views. The waiting staff... More
