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!

The primrose never fails to serve a good meal had fish which was excellent followed by a few drinks. Staff always have a smile and some time to have a chat. Would highly recommend this pub for a bite to eat and a few beverages

Family and I were in for a meal last week and as usual were made to feel very welcome by Pamela and the waiting and bar staff. We always enjoy our meals in the Primrose which is why we go there for special treats. On this occasion it was my birthday and they didn't let us down. The food was... More

Had another great visit to the primrose, the food and service is amazing, atmosphere great and a warm welcome. Staff are second to none and a friendly relaxed atmosphere adds to the experience. Can't stress enough how good the food is, would struggle to eat anywhere else in this area. Highly recommended

The Primrose is a good friendly pub and restaurant situated in Main Street Ballynahinch. The pub is clean spacious and well maintained and meals can be had either in the bar or upstairs in the restaurant. Meals are of an excellent standard and are reasonably priced. They range from a quick snack to a full a la carte menu All... More
