Good pub food

There's a good choice of food, reasonably priced and of good quality. The several times I have visited I have always had good service.

My husband and I eat in Cardan about twice a week and I thought it was about time I posted a review to let others know what they are missing out on! This place is by far the best restaurant in Lisburn! Everything is first class, from the staff, to the quality of the food to value for money! I... More

Had a beautiful meal here last September. Meant to add a review at the time. The one thing that impressed me so much was the level of service provided by two different waitresses I believe one was called Michelle. They were both so friendly & efficient you would have sworn they were the owners. The restaurant was really busy as... More

It is difficult to think of another bar/restaurant that offers such good value for those people who like to dine early and the staff are particularly welcoming right from booking to leaving. Although not vast the choice of menu is excellent and there literally is something for everyone, including vegetarians. Particular favourites of our group are the bbq pork ribs,... More

A nice wee spot - one I often visit. The staff are pleasant and I've always been made to feel welcome. The food's good for the money and when I dine I always feel I've got value for money. This is a pub-restaurant that, at times, can be a bit loud for those simply wishing to eat - but I... More

The menu selection is very good. I would recommend the food here to anyone. In particular there are several vegetarian options and daily specials. Portion sizes are very generous. And there are deals on a couple of courses and a drink which makes it value for money! Desserts are very nice, also very generous portions. Have to mention the tapenade... More

Been here twice in the last 8 days, 2 birthdays. Ribeye first time was cooked to perfection, served with a side of ribs, with fries, onion rings, pepper sauce. Tonight I had what I can only describe as the best soup starter I have ever had. Minted pea soup served with bread and butter, followed by a full rack of... More

To be honest I was not expecting much from this bar/grill as Lisburn is not usually known for its choice of places to eat, however I was pleasantly surprised. The meal we had on a Sunday lunch time was excellent, the presentation is outstanding and there is a great choice on the menu and specials board. I had one of... More

Was very very good if I had any complaints it would be that the pepper sauce was a little runny but other than that it was perfect

Tastiest steak I've ever had, starters were amazing, hard to choose something off the menu because I could have ate it all, specials also looked good, very creative, looking forward to visiting again. Keep it up
