Have been here a few times but probably not again. On walking in I was ignored by the two staff who were maybe changing shifts and discussing what needed doing but was then shown to a table. It was a busy afternoon during Christmas shopping but the restaurant was just over half full. I waited ages (nearly walked out), before... More

Hadn't been for a while. No one in restaurant at all. Menu was different from last time and really pretty boring. Waitress said this dish wasn't on and that wasn't on. Ordered sea bass which she then said they didn't do anymore so settled for beef, and cheesecake as dessert. Wife ordered chicken, and pavlova as dessert. Waitress went away,... More

One kitchen staff made an appearance in restaurant looking... More

Just happened to find this restaurant as I was searching on my phone. Rang it and got a table booked no bother for a Saturday night at 7.30 - I just thought out luck was in. When we went our waiter who greeted us and served our food all night was lovely. Very helpful and was able to recommend certain... More

This was our first trip to this restaurant. We were looking for somewhere to stop off on our way home and used Trip Advisor as a guide. Guided by the reviews and ratings we chose High St 51. Found the restaurant easily enough in Ballymena (town not familiar to us) and there was a handy car park nearby. Didn't know... More

We heard that Simon was back in the kitchen so we went along. Although he's hasn't been back long enough to get his own menu sorted out, the meals he cooked were delicious. I was even raving about the mash for gawds sake. Can hardly wait until he gets his menu on the go. Will definitely be back sooner rather... More

On a day trip to Ballymena and not knowing the area and where to eat I googled and found on TripAdvisor this amazing place. As we arrived at 6pm the place was very quiet but we were greeted by a very pleasant waitress. Reviews on TripAdvisor were very precise as the food lived up to expectations and more. My husband...
