A nice spot for a good quality meal. We had being staying at the White Horse Hotel where the restaurant is situated and decided to sample the evening menu. The highlight for me was the helpfulness from the staff. From the moment we walked through the door to we left the restaurant, the staff where very friendly and generally seemed... More

My husband and I had lunch at 68 Clooney which is the bistro/restaurant part of The White Horse Hotel. The lunch menu was extensive with choices for all tastes. Not only can you choose from the menu but a 'special' carvery type meal is available. We had a very tasteful Club Sandwich (filled and with a side of fries) and... More

This is a nice welcoming hotel to walk into, typically Derry friendliness. The reception staff have been great the two times that I've eaten at this restaurant. The restaurant itself has very nice decor and I would like to go back for an evening meal there. My husband and I called in for lunch in the way to Enniskillen, I... More

We visited 68 Clooney for lunch with family and friends and we weren't disappointed. Very helpful and friendly staff and the selection available on the menu was great. Most of us ended up opting for the car very buffet which was fresh and tasty. The vegetables were beautifully cooked and very fresh rather than the usual shrivelled up and dry... More

Our meal was so disappointing with dry chicken and too much jue on the beef my plate was practically swimming. The starter was the best course with good old favourite soup on the menu. The trio of dessert was nothing special with a lemon sauce thing in a cup (I've no idea) a small biscuit base thing with what looked... More

We had a perfect meal here on Saturday night. Attentive staff, excellent food. Mum said it was the best fish she has had anywhere in a long time. My steak would have melted in your mouth. It's not the cheapest restaurant and it is refreshing to see not all Derry restaurants are jumping on the 20% off bandwagon like so... More

68 Clooney has become the jewel in the crown in relation to a hotel that has a brilliant restaurant in its own right. Six of us dined and six of us fully satisfied. My wife and I had the sirloin steak and it was the best steak I have had in a long time. Great food, excellent service even though... More

Great choice with a good menu choice. Portions are medium size but after a starter and a main course I felt full. I did notice that the price had gone up slightly and not menu offers, but very nice food.

The only problem, if you want to call it a problem, was that as there was a large group all ready being served we had to wait approx an hour for our service, but as we had company and were in no big hurry we didn't mind. The settings were suburb with a very talented lady playing the piano. The... More
