The Irish stew was the best we have had and plenty of it. The waitress insisted we sit by the fire as there were virtually no one else in the restaurant. It was warm , cosy and friendly with a good priced tasty meal

One of the few restaurants that know what to do with a steak! Cooked exactly as requested and served with generous side orders. Well worth a visit!

We have stopped a couple of times to have lunch here while doing the causeway coastal route and I love it because its so cosy and inviting, the bar staff are really friendly and the food is nice, service a bit slow maybe for some but we are never in a rush so suits us fine!

Lovely wee spot, open fires, good service. Staff were so helpful and really took an interest in trying to please us. It's what service should be about.

We were staying overnight and decided to have dinner in the coach house. The normal menu was available and also a 2 course fish night special menu which we had. The food was excellent and as good if not better than many of the trendier eateries further along the north coast. Service was excellent, I think the waiter was called... More

Grilled sirloin steak with fries, home baked wheaten bread, tea and the steak comes with all the trimmings. Terrific food and great value for money. You have to wait a little for a table at busy times but well worth that wait. Highly recommended

The service was realy good but the food was just ok. I have been before and the food was better so maybe just an off day. Breakfast is fine but I am a bit picky. Ulster fry should contain fried soda bread/pancake, black pudding. All were missing. The sausages and bacon should be the best quality and taste

Not sure where the bistro title came from. The pub at the end if the Londonderry Arms Hotel is a good place for lunch. Pleasant table service, excellent choice of well cooked food and reasonably priced. We stopped off as I am sure others do, on a coastal trip and even though we arrived early, others had beat us to...
