Great food and ambience

Lovely family meal for fathers day. The Custom House is located in the city centre and easily accessible. There is a great selection of food especially for those who love seafood. I really enjoyed the seabass and the steak was freshly served. The staff are very polite and went out of their way to... read more

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

Two visits in a matter of days and each one as good as the other. Food was first class and matched by the friendly and efficient service.

Lovely surroundings and beautiful food. Waiters/Waitresses are very welcoming and attentive. We've been a few times. In the evening. For Sunday lunch and for a family Christening. The set up for the christening was great. Private room for all the family and there was plenty of food. The Sunday lunch is great value for money and at Easter my little... More

Has seafood that was not from fish farms. You can tell from the tasted and firmness of the fish meat. Good service and ambience.
