Just perfect, really!

This is a favourite for lunch. Staff could not present a more friendly, welcoming and efficient service. Food is consistently excellent. Prices are reasonable. What's not to love? Don't expect The Ritz just expect excellence.

Excellent food and great choice, visited here for a family meal whilst on holiday from England, the value of the food was superb and much better value for money that many of the restaurants i have eaten in in England. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the childrens menu selection was brilliant. Would definitely return if back in... More

Found the 'Primrose' on trip advisor before going to N.Ireland. Very welcoming pub/restaurant. Staff are great and can't do enough to accommodate you. We first visited as a group of 6 and the food was excellent. This was on the 9th of August 2015 and made sure we went back for another visit as the experience was so good. We... More

Called in on a trip to Ballynahinch to visit family. Staff, service and food were first class. Couldn't have been more friendly or courteous and seen to our every need. Everyone commented about how good and plentiful their food was. It cost £35 for a family of four with drinks and we will definitely be back. Top class!!!

Would highly recommend this as a place to eat. We visited this places twice whilst staying in Northern Ireland. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. The portions sizes are very generous and there is a great deal of choice on the menu

Called in last Sunday for dinner and got a lovely table, restaurant was very busy. We didn't have to wait too long for our food and even thou the menu didn't have the sauces I wanted it wasn't a problem getting them! Very pleasant staff - will definitely be back!!!

I eat here with my family quite regularly! The staff are always welcoming and are always willing to 'knock something up' even if it's not in the menu! I can highly recommend and if your passing by it's well worth the visit even it's just for a nice pint of Guinness!

This place is really nice, i went in with my parents on time after an inkling for pub grub, but what we got was so much more. The interior is very cosy and warm, staff are very friendly, and always happy to help, the manager is really nice to, she has served us on occasion. The food is brilliant, generous... More

Great food and great staff, they always welcome you and make you feel welcome. You need to be hungry as the portion sizes are brill and leave you feeling very full. Totally recommend.
