One of the best steaks I've ever had. Absolutely melted in the mouth. The goats cheese starter was excellent too. Great value and service too. Highly recommended.

This place is ideal for a quick lunch. Situated in the countryside outside Newtownards, it serves a variety of wholesome food most of which is home made. Pleasant staff and quick service is a bonus. Have a look at the farm shop for produce of very high quality.
