Myself and my wife stopped in Sexton's for lunch on our way to Belfast after it was recommended at a petrol station nearby. It was lashing rain and the stove in the bar was very welcome. I had a 'pork wellington' - a very filling and tasty alternative to the beef classic. The vegetables of carrots and green beans were... More

Where to start?! Sexton's has been a family favourite in our house since I can remember. I still remember fondly the frequent and diffcult decision as a child as to whether I got the chicken and chips in a basket, or the sausages and chips in a basket. Unfortunately, the decision making process as an adult is equally difficult! I... More
