Ballymena is short of good places for lunch and my wife had had a bad experience at the previous restaurant at the Galgorm Castle Golf Club. However as it had been relaunched as the Eagle Bar and Grill we checked it out online, saw there was a promising lunch menu (£8 for one course) so decided to give it a... More

Great menu and excellent food really let down by portion size. I had a large rabbit stew £18 and sticky toffee pudding and was looking dinner when I got home. My wife eats like a sparrow and she cleared her plate and wanted more. My 2 year olds meal came out on a plate the heat was radiating from but... More

Went to the Eagle with my mum this week for lunch. The two young guys that were waiting our table were very pleasant & friendly so no complaints there. The white wine that was served was warmish and we had to ask for a chiller or ice bucket. I had the chicken Caesar salad, there's not really much that could... More

We had been meaning to try here a few times and were not disappointed! The menu and food were devine! The kids thoroughly enjoyed there meal too! I had turbot and scallops which were on special and my husband had steak, neither of us could find fault at all! Will definitely be back and would definitely go there before gillies!!

It has a typical golf club menu, what you would expect, but it was cooked to perfection. I ate a Sunday roast type meal - Loin of pork with... More

There was only two other tables in at the time. As we got seated, I noticed my boyfriend had no napkin it... More

I booked a table for 4 at this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday and had invited friends from England.When we arrived on the night a private function was being held and no table was available.We were then ushered out of the premises with not much of an apology or even to go and check the booking. When I returned... More

The food and service was good - pricey but very good! My issue was the parking!! It needs monitored!!! Many cars were straddled over two places and as a result we had to park in the lower park in the pouring rain. Def put me off a revisit!!!
