Great Vibe!

As soon as we arrived at around 9.30 there was live music downstairs which was great, the bar man who seemed to be the owner of the pub was very welcoming and great crack! After a few drinks me and my girlfriend went up stairs where there was another Band playing and the vibe was great, relaxed and... read more

What a great atmosphere and live music. One night a local man got up and joined the singer playing the spoons! It is so relaxed and the locals were very friendly

Was here last night and it was busy so we had a short wait, but it was a bank holiday and it shows how good the food is!! Ordered steak as I have before, and again it didn't disappoint!! Cooked perfectly medium rare and served hot and fast. The wood burning grill is the best thing!! Staff are all very... More

This restaurant is very busy however if they can't seat you immediately you can go to the bar upstairs and they call you when a table becomes available. We waited 10 minutes. Staff are friendly and the food tastes good. I was in a group of 5 and I don't think any of us finished our main. Big portions and... More

Fantastic live music and a really buzzing atmosphere, I would definitely visit again. I loved the great customer service and the brilliant gin bar. I will definitely return.

Great atmospheric pub. Little booths. People outside drinking in the sun. Great for a weekend relaxing drink. Very good food in the restaurant too.

Great music, ample space to dance and super friendly staff. A great evening out. Parking nearby may be an issue though. Still any walk there offers great views!

Visited for lunch on Sunday afternoon around 2 o'clock. When we arrived we were informed you had to book in advance, however they were able to give us the last available space! The food was decent, penne pasta beef was lovely with plenty of beef! The scampi was slightly underwhelming as it was quite a small portion. Service was really... More

The new gin bar upstairs is nice with really friendly staff. A great place to pass an evening with friends. BUT.....I would have given four stars except that when the downstairs restaurant opens in the evening there are queues of people trying to get in (as tables can not be reserved.) These people then come into the bar area for... More

Every visit to Portrush ends here with great fun - love Willie, the best landlord ever with a heart of gold. A real must to visit if you're in the neighbourhood!
