I liked the atmosphere of the place, but the thought the service was average and the steaks we ordered were average. Stood at the bar for a whole minute or so while no other customers were at it, and waited to be asked what I wanted while a couple staff members chatted behind the bar. Ordered salads with dressing on... More

This place has a few different menus to offer. Downstairs is where you can get a nice dinner with meat cooked over wood coals. Upstairs they have pizza and pub type food. The steaks are delicious and flavorful. You will want to order a side as well as the steak and little sides of onion and a stuffed pepper don't... More

Fantastic bar with great atmosphere and a great place for a pint or two before and after having a meal in one of the associated restaurants.

This is a must-visit pub in Portrush. I've been going for years and years and it's an absolute classic. They have added a bar upstairs, with live music (two excellent musicians when we were in) and pizzas. Well worth a visit.

Great Friday night in the Harbour bar which, although very busy, still managed excellent service. Music in the Gin Bar was excellent and non intrusive and the front bar was very friendly and the craic was good. Bass and Guiness on tap but no other craft or local beer. Lots of bottled beer available. I didn't eat in the Bistro... More

We spent more time then was needed in this very well run bar and drank large quantities of the brilliantly prepared G&T's. The delicious pizzas prepared behind the bar in a pizza oven were just right and if could remeber more I would tell

What it lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere. Amazing bar staff run this place like a well oiled machine and make this place the No1 go-to pub in Portrush. Don't know why the Guinness here tastes so good, it just does! As for the choice of Bushmills on offer.....! I am reliably informed the 12 year old... More

Proper harbour front bar and despite the obligatory stares from locals (all friendly I should add!) had a cracking little visit. Would love to have stayed longer and eaten upstairs, but will save that for next visit. Barman was an absolute master as well. Rocking tweed waistcoat.
