I have eaten in here 3 times in the past few weeks and every time the food and service have been top class. And I can honestly say the homemade burgers are the best in Ulster. Will definitely be visiting again very very soon .

We eat here often and have never been disappointed. The food is lovely and has good hearty portions! We have 2 young children who are always looked after promptly with toys, crayons etc. Reasonably priced, clean restuarant with friendly staff. Couldn't ask for more :)
