Went out for Mothers day. We had taken my mother out for the carvery and I have to say it was poor. Really poor portions and over priced, not to mention the fact that it wasn't great food at all. My mother also found a small spider in her potatoes, although I'm sure that could happen anywhere. Anywhere else in... More

Very impressed with how the building has been upgraded. Staff well presented and friendly. Food was excellent and fairly good value. A pleasant experience. Can highly recommend their steak ciabatta bread served with garlic fries or chips.

Attended a family wedding at the Belfray last year, the food was very good, hot and servied promplty, the owners were very hands on, even one comparing throughout the day. The Belfray is a nice venue and the staff were friendly, it is conveniently located just outside Derry on the main Belfast road.
