Much improved!

Have eaten there twice in the past month after giving it a miss for quite a while, and very pleased on both occasions. It is a lovely place, great staff, and tasty food with good sized portions.

Custom House Restaurant, right in the heart of Derry, is a great restaurant find at reasonable prices. The menu was varied with many options. We both tried fresh fish entrees that were tastefully prepared and delicious. Because dining options are limited in Derry, we were very happy to find this lovely place.

We did not have a reservation on that stormy blustery evening, but the friendly bartender helped us ease the wait. This was one of the best restaurants I ate at in Ireland. The sea trout (catch of the day) was beautifully cooked, and the veg had texture. The decor in the restaurant is not very modern, but do not let... More

Went to Custom House in Saturdat night, 4th of July, Our Independance Day. We hadn't booked, but brought straight up and say at beautiful round table overlooking the entire restaurant. Food was great, atmosphere was great. Would recommend the custom house anytime, to anyone vacationing in Derry. Special mention to our server Adain. He was charming and professional.

Ate here last night with a group of friends - well what can I say but excellent! The food was as superb as always, we all had starter, main & dessert and each course was gorgeous and beautifully presented. 1 of my friends was celebrating her birthday so we had delivered balloons & a cake earlier and every member of...

This is based on my experience at a "leaving do" attended by 45-50 people. The room was upstairs and was easily accessed by a lift. There was also a separate bar in our room which was good. However the seating caused a bit of a problem as they were long tables with fixed couches against the wall. This meant that... More

We had Sunday lunch here on a weekend trip to Derry. The food was delicious and the interior is really warm and inviting. I would return no problem.

My wife and I visited on Valentine's night back in February (only took us 4 months to write a review) and had a fantastic time! We were greeted with a glass of bubbly, shown a menu and promptly escorted to our table by the new manager at the time (probably not so new now) who gave my wife a long... More
