This place was recommended by our B&B. Taking into account that there are few places to eat along the coast, we would actually recommend giving this place a miss. The pub has a stunning location but all the tables face a TV that nobody is really watching and the atmosphere is not really what you would expect at a world... More

Stopped by here after doing the Giant's Causeway, which is just right next to their parking lot. I had the Irish stew (portion was huge) which was so amazing and I tried to finish but there was just too much. My husband had the deep fried prawns which he enjoyed and said the batter was light and fluffy but not... More

We enjoyed the Nook. The food was hot and very much enjoyed. The service was good and very helpful. Loved the menu which told the story of the building as well. They also had a roaring fire in the fireplace which on a cold blustery day was appreciated.

A nice cozy place to warm up and rest after a trip to the Causeway. We had some excellent seafood chowder. The steak and Guinness pie was also a hit.

We were part of a CIE tour. We walked down rather than take the little bus to Giants Causeway. Afterward came to The Nook for a hearty lunch because we were starved. The staff were so very nice. We ordered a red and a white wine, fish and chips with mashed peas, and I ordered a wonderful bowl of Irish... More

As with many of the reviewers we were on a day trip to Giant's Causeway. It was pleasant to be there on a rainy chilly day; a fire was crackling near us. Like many pubs, you go up to the bar to order food which is brought to your table when ready. I had a nice vegetable soup while my... More

After a visit to the Giant's Causeway, there's nothing better than a pint and some good pub grub. That is exactly what we got. We avoided the typical pub fried food and went for the Irish stew and the fish pie. Both was excellent. The local brew was also a very good pint, the only disappointment was that I could... More

Stopped to have a quick meal before returning to Belfast. Food was excellent - I had the sandwich and soup - a good choice. Pub was quirky, staff friendly. It filled up quickly when it started raining. Tables a bit too close together for comfort, so we left after our meal.
