A good place to dine outside of LondonDerry

Beautiful food with good wine and other beverages, in a slightly up-market atmosphere, with attentive and helpful staff; and not overly expensive

Top marks yet again to the Belfray for another great visit. They never fail to disappoint with their attentive, friendly service and top notch food. Today we were celebrating a christening, there were 24 of us plus 3 young children for their Sunday Carvery which was delish - you definitely won't go hungry, i still haven't managed to eat anything...

Had a toasted sandwich and cup of tea. They offered me sauces etc. I said some mayonnaise would be nice. They put a dollop on a dish and charged me £1 for it. This was not fair as it was not a branded mayo. They did not charge for the vinegar!!!

Dear Seasontraveller54 Thank you for our recent review. Reading your review it leads me to believe that you found the £1 charge on top of the £7.70 charge for the toasted panini and pot of tea to be not good value for money. If this is the case then i would like to offer my apologies as you should not... More
