A fine feast in Ulster

We had dinner here the night before visiting the nearby Giant's Causeway. The restaurant has been renovated and very beautifully done with lots of wood and subdued lighting .

this isn't a cheap place to eat but great value for the quality of the food and cooking. Service is very good and above average for the area. Restaurant is atmospheric and the bar really good for before or after.

My Hake was pretty good but the rest of my family was underwhelmed by their meals. The starters were good but very small. Overall the family gives this place a 3. Atmosphere is very nice, the service was ok and overall the food was fair.

We had a wonderful stay at Bushmills Inn, and made a dinner reservation for a Thursday night. Although it was mid July, it was a chilly and rainy evening. As we waited for our reservation time we enjoyed a drink by a warming fire. There are several fireplaces in unque sitting areas around the inn. Dinner was great! Service was... More

A perfect stop @ end of 4 hour journey for 5 of us. Great variety on menu. I had the fish & it was lovely. Very pleasant & attentive service. Set us up for our game of golf next day.

I have recommended this restaurant to family and friends and all have enjoyed it as much as we did. It has a small restaurant feel with excellent service. The food is second to none and well worth the money.

Our group of 7 stopped for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday Carvery. The sheer variety ensured that everyone left happy. All of the food was excellent, and an excellent value. Staff was kind and attentive. I would highly recommend a stop here.
