Last September as my friends birthday rolled around, we decided to go to Magee's for dinner and a few drinks. I had never actually eaten here before this and was a little unsure of what to expect.

I should have changed as I am sure there would not have been a problem. The rest of... More

Such a sad experience after reading the reviews. The food was poor and service slow. Little atmosphere and unglamourous surroundings.

We chose a table in front of an open kitchen where we could see the chef and his crews preparing our dishes. The service was very good and energetic by young staff.

Very accommodating staff - it was busy when we arrived but they managed to find a table for us (even if it was in the bar with loads of hens & stags passing through on a Saturday night). Food was great - oysters au naturel were a real treat and the seafood platter provided good portions and variety of types... More

First visit to Magees. We arrived early but was given choice to either have drink at bar or go straight to our table which we did. Cocktails were ordered and served while we selected our starter and main. - soft shell crab and fillet steak and lobster combo. Both lived up to expectations! Thank you, a really enjoyable night and... More
