Very nice & very cosy in the bar area but unfortunately we were seated in an area in the restaurant that felt more like a conservatory with very little atmosphere if any. I had the fillet steak which was very nice, my fiancée had the chicken which was "just chicken" nothing special. Ordinarily this would be fine but given the... More

We visited on a Saturday night. The service in the restaurant was excellent, just the right balance of friendliness and formality. The food as always was very good but in this case even better than our last visit. The pan fried venison was perhaps the nicest dish I've eaten in a long time. We shared a cheese board for dessert...

So it had been 12 years since we had last been for an evening meal. We were not disappointed ! The atmosphere was lovely, the staff... More

My husband and I visited Bushmills and after the tour were so hungry we had dinner there it was really welcome and homely. Food was home cooked and wholesome and reasonably priced. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. For a small restaurant there was a good choice of food.

My guide and I stopped for dinner - incredible. I was new to Ireland and the entire notion of chips over french fries. I asked for mayonnaise with my chips - the chef whisked it fresh. Best flavour ever.

Called in here after a meal elsewhere in the village. The service was very good. The local music was good too with a six piece traditional band. Not sure I would pay the price to stay. Craft beers were very expensive. Wine was well priced. A shot of Midleton's whiskey was uncharacteristically cheap at £10.25. It's near £14/£15 in Belfast.
