We had our christening for our little girl in the Primrose, the food was gorgeous and in the party of 8 adults and three children there wasn't too much leftover for a doggy bag!!! The staff were friendly and patient and were lovely to the kids. It is a must if eating in Ballynahinch! Definate value for money

We were shown to a table downstairs in the bar where it was very quiet. It was very cold in the bar, so much so neither of us removed our coats the entire night. We both really enjoy eating out and found the menu here very disappointing. We decided not to have a starter as nothing appealed. We each had... More

The Primrose is my local restuarant of choice. This was a return visit to say thank you to my sister for her assistance over the year. The Primrose never fails to satisfy. I have known the owner and the previous owner over the last 30 years as well as many of the staff. They are always open to any variation... More

We rarely go out for a meal when we're home. That is to say we are fortunate to travel quite a lot and so when we choose to be home, we generally eat in. On the rare occasion we do go out for a meal it is always our hope it is memorable, or at the very least worth our... More

Delicious food, excellent service, friendly staff. Warm feeling - strangers made very welcome. Our last evening in the area was made very special and leaves us with lasting memories of Northern Ireland.

We have ate at the Primrose several times before, we went tonight for something to eat - pleasantly surprised! The menu has changed slightly, the food was up to the usual high standard, the staff are very attentive, nothing is too much for them.

When in the area it's well worth stopping for a lunch or evening meal, the staff are efficient and nothing's to much trouble, the food is above average and not to expensive at all.Good menu for kids and they will accommodate requests for some of the main dishes to be made smaller for children.

Waitress/owner whatever she is has a serious attitude problem. We had not even sat down and we were rushed for our drinks order. After about 3 mins of being given the menu we where asked if we where ready to order, we politely asked for a few more minutes and then received huffs, puffs and dirty looks. Food arrived and...
