Went for lunch and glad to see improvements to the approach road and car parking since I was last there. Had to queue as usual but worth the wait. The food was excellent and the staff were great, would recommend to anybody looking for a good lunch or breakfast. Also well worth checking out the shop lot's of good food... More

Lovely lunch at Mckees farm shop. Food was good though the waitress took the order wrong, seemed to be a bit disorganised out the front. Food was good and having a browse around the shop is nice after.

Everytime I go here the place is always packed and we always have to queue for a seat, but in the end its worth the wait because these people have service and food down to a T. The staff are impeccable with manners and will go that little bit extra to see that you are satisfied with your meal,whether it... More

McKees is a (little bit posh) lovely farm restaurant, with a brilliant breakfast menu. The healthy choice breakfast is a personal favourite- a special twist on the 'traditional fry-up'. The staff are wonderful, and extrembly helpful. It can (will) get very busy on a Saturday from 10am onwards and you may have to wait for a table. it is a... More

Every Tuesday morning for as long as the restaurant has been open, I take my mum to McKee's for breakfast. We get there around 9.30, sit down at our usual table at the window and admire the glorious views of Scrabo Tower and Strangford Lough, before ordering 'our usual' The staff are so lovely, know our order off by heart,...

Been here a few times and have not been disappointed to date. Within easy commute from Newtownards,Holywood, Dundonald or indeed Bangor it is a well run country farm shop with restaurant but now I feel the restaurant has taken over from the shop as the main attraction. A very popular lunch venue and is always busy but inspite of this... More

Visited recently. Had lunch in the restaurant which was very nice and warm. Can't fault the meal or the service. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Afterwards shopped in the farm shop. All their produce was lovely and fresh. Again, very nice staff. Only criticism would be of their website. Went on the site to view the menu but... More
