Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, it was a treat for my mums birthday. Very welcoming atmosphere as we entered Fantails to the cosiness of the real fire. I was most certainly spoilt for choice of the variety of dishes on the menu, superb as always at Fantails. Friendly staff and excellent service, most definitely be returning soon.

Excellent for a family meal or a night out... needs to... More

My sister had her retirement party at Fantails. We had a lovely welcome as usual. a fabulous meal, great service & atmosphere. Nicola ran the show and even let us 'borrow' a bottle of Malt to take home at the end of the night! Thanks again Kenny & Nicola. Greg & Jude Kelly.
