A well established bar, restaurant and bistro which I would use again. My only advice would be if you can't source it don't put it on your menu.

I had the prawns in a lime,garlic and chillie sauce for starters which had just the right balance of sweetness and tartness complimenting each other superbly.... More

First visit for our wedding anniversary, thought we would go somewhere different for a change. Booked in advance for 'Steak Night',really looking forward to it. What a let down. Could not believe the size of the sides - very mean portions. Ordered dessert as still hungry. Waiter seemed to dismiss us instantly as we did not order drinks. Forgot tomato... More

Visited with my partner for lunch and will certainly visit again next time in Newtownards. I had the pork belly with mash and partner had pulled pork sandwich. Both meals were succulent and delicious and the sweets of cheesecakes rounded off a great meal

I can never fault this place. We are regulars upstairs in the restaurant on Wednesday and Thursday's when steak nights are on. £11 for a sirloin, side and sauce...absolutely fantastic and always made to my specifications. The staff are fantastic, always lovely and willing to please. Wine is reasonably priced for a mid range restaurant. Haven't been to the bar... More

We hadn't been here for along time because of the poor food then someone recommended the breakfast so we gave it another go. If you look you will see that I reviewed the breakfast as being really great. In fact we went on three occasions over the last few months for breakfast. I don't know what happened but when we...

Came here at 4pm and ordered £11 starter and main early bird. The starters were good, chicken wings and garlic cheese bread, very mice, however the salad wasn't great, we got a burger each for our mains. It was also very nice, along with a side of chilli chips, overall the experience was a good one. Will sure go back... More
