Very good again

Myself and my wife ate here a couple of years ago on our way to Donegal and it was very nice so we decided to try it again last week. I have to say it was even better than before with great food and service. I had the duck salad starter and pork belly main and they were delicious. Well... read more

We had lunch here on a quick trip to Derry. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals (I had the pan fried salmon, highly recommend) and the kids meal for our daughter had amazing fried cod. Also, if you go for lunch the prices are really reasonable - we ate at a pub in the city center the next... More

My wife and I had a really good meal in this restaurant during the Derry City Jazz and Blues Festival earlier this month. The food was excellent quality but it was the attention and service of the staff which really impressed us. We hadn't booked in advance and the restaurant was busy but they managed to fit us in.

Went here for lunch with the family, what a disappointment. Having previously been here on many occasions before and given great reviews, this time was a terrible disappointment. Our food was really bland from start to finish. I had a chilli chicken pitta. It was strange, no chilli, flavourless tomato type sauce soggy peppers and a pitta that was really... More

In February of this year I booked Custom House for a private function. I'd eaten in Custom House before and had a very pleasant dining experience so decided to see how they catered for large groups. I needed somewhere that was relatively central, somewhere with enough space (ideally private) for a large group and somewhere that served gourmet food at... More

My husband and I went on a very rare night out to Custom House restaurant. The restrauant itself is situated near the banks of the river foyle, the river and the new award winning peace bridge can be viewed as you eat. On the night we went there we had the £29 meal for two with free bottle of wine,... More

The title of the review sums it up. This was probably the best meal we have had in Northern Island. It has a very pleasant, intimate atmosphere and the food was excellent. The price was remarkably reasonable. I would definitrly go here again if I found my self in Londonderry.

I don't normally do reviews, but had to write about Custom House in Derry. We stayed in the City Hotel last weekend, and the receptionist recommended the Custom House Restaurant. We were extremely impressed. Busy and full of character, the food was some of the very best cooked and presented I have ever eaten. I can't wait to go back... More

Went to Custom House last Saturday with friends while visiting Derry. We didn't make a reservation, but we're only waiting about 10 minutes before being brought upstairs into this beautiful restaurant. The first thing that hit us was the buzz of the restaurant. A sense of excitement and enjoyment. Busy with people all enjoying themselves. The real treat came after... More
