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.

The restaurant was comfortable but a little dim. The service was quick and the staff were friendly and attentive.

We recently got married in Derry city and wanted somewhere for our reception which would deliver great food, a good location, great service at an affordable price and that is exactly what we got from the custom house. We wanted a more casual and intimate wedding and the custom house was the perfect location, their beautifully decorated private room comfortably... More

Portion sizes were good, but salmon dish off the menu inexplicably came without the sundried tomato risotto as listed, and instead was garnished with romaine lettuce, potatoes, and peas. The side Caesar salad was quite overdressed with a mayonnaise heavy dressing and had loads of bacon added, and only one crouton. On the other hand, the waitstaff were warm and... More

My wife and I called in for a few late afternoon drinks. We were immediately made welcome by bar staff Sean and Keith. We had friends to meet later on that day or I don't think we would have moved all night!! The place was so friendly and comfortable we decided to come back for dinner with our friends. The... More

We stumbled upon the Custom house while out walking in Derry City. After having a drink with the very pleasant staff downstairs we were invited up to the restaurant and provided with a great private booth. The ability to have private booths is a very nice touch and can add a real cosy touch to your meal. The food was... More

Overpriced & over rated. Not a good experience, food took a long time to arrive and when it did it was cold. Manager offered to take my meal off the bill should have got the bill cleared as we didn't eat it. Not impressed!!

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
