It's an old school building converted into pub, and the benches are the same ones used in the old school! Since we didn't want to go into the visitor centre at giant's causeway, this was our only option. The food was great! Not the usual oily pub grub, but quality, tasty stuff. It was quite busy at the time, but... More

It is very clean and the staff friendly and helpful, the food is pretty standard and not particularly special but ok for the environment.

I recently visited the nook restaurant & ordered 3 soup - sandwich combo which came to £25 but when I paid with my Irish credit card they charged me €40. It should have cost €33!! I don't mind paying a bit over the odds but felt this was a rip off.

This is a nice restaurant - not very comfortable - wooden benches...but homely and the fire was much appreciated on a cold winter day. The food was below average really, but hot and grand. A little overcooked - well i was there in the afternoon, that is fairly normal, the desert was not great at all - apple crumble -... More

After a cold walk along the cliffs, it was lovely to settle down in The Nook for lunch next to its real-wood fires.

This is a great little restaurant for visitors to the Giant's Causeway. The staff was super friendly and helpful, service was great, and everything was very affordable. If you're visiting the Causeway, this is an excellent, cozy "nook" of a restaurant to check out.
