Tasty homely grub!

McKees farm shop and restaurant offers fresh, tasty food and snacks throughout the day. It's really popular and always busy, so be prepared to wait occasionally!

My parents were celebrating 55 years of marriage & chose to celebrate with lunch in McKee's. We had a wonderful lunch of well cooked, delicious & beautifully presented food.

Purchased a ready meal - chicken and noodles to heat in the microwave. Revolting - utterly inedible. It's not the first time this has happened but felt compelled to review it anyway. The restaurant seems busy and people actually queue here, but not sure why as the food is just the usual average stodge.

Good breakfast. Lovely French toast although it was not as good as other we had in another Belfast cafe and they forgot my maple syrup bah. Would come again we sat on patio and service was very attentive. Nice bacon but sausage was a bit dry and husky.

The food is very good quality and very tasty and services is very friendly. We also have had them do outside catering for a number of events we have done and the food is of the best quality and come warm and very well presented.

Get there early as the queues build up from 10am-this says it all. This morning I had Farmhouse Wheaten, tow poached eggs with a mug of coffee. There is a good selection including pancakes, bacon and maple syrup or a selection of scones. The deli and all the fresh produce is second to none. Enjoy.

Dad & I both had haddock with chunky chips & Mum had gammon with creamed mash, cabbage & carrot & parsnip. The food was excellent both in flavour, presentation & quantity. It was excellent & the warm & welcoming atmosphere made it a... More
