All were delicious...the batter on the onion rings was golden and crispy, didn't go soggy; lasagne... read more

Went to the Belfray for a meal on 19 February as usual the food was excellent and the service was exceptional (our Waiter John was very good at encouraging my Son to eat all his meal). Will be back on Mother's Day (I have booked already as the Restaurant is always in demand) Looking forward to it.

I'm a local and this is one of my favourite places to eat. Located in the countryside a few minutes from Derry it's convenient to get to when I need a lunchtime retreat from the bustle of town. Service is prompt, friendly and attentive and the food always a real treat. With visiting clients for a business lunch where I... More

Just enjoyed a fantastic night at the Belfry. The 4 course meal was delicious, cooked and presented perfectly and served by polite and attentive dining room staff. The after dinner show was like a "mini" East end musical with numerous costume changes, dancing girls and very strong singing performances from both soloists. The house band which ended the nights entertainment... More

Visited the Belfray on Sunday the 8th of Feb. It’s not the first time I have been here with my family and the reason we go is because we love the food. When the kids are asked where they want to go for Sunday lunch, it is always the first place they recommend. Whether we eat in the ballroom or... More

Went for the Sunday Carvery was extremely disappointed with the service and the food. Firstly on arriving the bar man asked if we would like drinks, we ordered a couple of drinks and... More
