After visiting the Giants Causeway which ESS amazing, we came here for a drink. I didn't see that the ysbles are slanted on one side and puty drink down on it. The drink immediately slid off the table and broke. The staff came and cleaned it up, but refused to replace the drink. They then said this is their policy,... More

After a trip to the Giants Causeway we called into the Nook for lunch. The place was quiet enough for lunch time and we got our order in early (order yourself at the bar and pay for in advance). It took 10 minutes to place the order (there was 11 in the party including small kids) and the staff were... More

The three girls that were serving on 27th June in the evening were a delight. Friendly, helpful and dining there was a pleasure. Food was very good and well priced. Customer care in the nook is great.

After 7 hours on a coach and a tramp over the Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and another around Giant's Causeway I just had time for a wonderfully refreshing pint of Belfast Lager before hopping back on the coach to Belfast itself.

Our hotel receptionist recommended the Nook for refreshment on our trip to Giant's Causeway & while my expectations were low given its proximity to a major tourist site, I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived in the middle of the lunchtime peak, but the food ordering system is remarkably efficient & food arrived quite quickly. The Irish stew at £8:50 was... More

Good stop for lunch after a morning of hiking Giants Causway. Irish stew with homemade bread was hearty tasty. The fish soup was more like a stew, lovely creamy soup with lots of fish and shellfish.

Visited at Easter last year and enjoyed both the food and stunning views that we thought we'd give it another go on this years visit. Again, very busy but the staff were attentive and seemed to cope very well with the constant stream of tourists. Dined as a party of three and chose a selection of meals from the specials,... More

Stopped here for lunch. The menu is surprisingly limited - especially for vegetarian & gluten free options. Would love to see salmon on it too. You order & pay at the bar - which makes service staff less attentive and as you've paid before your food arrives you are less inclined then to order desert or anything additional. Rather shockingly,... More
