Happy that the menu has changed

Unlike another reviewer I always struggled to pick something on the menu as it was mainly pizza and I don't particularly like pizza and their other choices were limited. I heard that the menu had changed so decided to give it a go again with my other half. Yes the menu is certainly more varied... read more

When visiting a new town finding somewhere to eat can be a real struggle however thanks to the trip advisor reviews we decided to try out The Back Shed. Upon arrival the restaurant was tucked away between shops and stood out from the rest. Downstairs the bar area was very pleasant and then upstairs the dining area certainly matched this.... More

This is my local haunt and LOVE the place...or did. I've always loved the menu which for a small restaurant was always more than sufficient. I have never been disappointed before. I heard the menu was changed and thought maybe it was just to keep things fresh with a few changes. No. The entire menu has been overhauled with the... More

If you like continental -type, especially Italian, food, you'll love The Back Shed. The pizzas are extremely good and again, it is one of those places which is very child friendly early on in the evening. later on there is music available downstairs.

We have eaten here several times recently. I have been impressed with all our choices so far. Last time I ordered the starter nachos, the portion was huge and every bird delicious. My other half ordered the specials and really enjoyed them. We have yet to try dessert as we are too stuffed after the mains. I like the atmosphere... More

We stopped in for dinner, they happened to be slow that night in the dining room that is upstairs. Got a 12" pizza to share and it was pretty good. I could see how service may be lacking when they get busy but we didn't have much of a problem. A nice change if you're looking for something other than... More

Called in for a meal after leaving daughter off to the airport and I went on Tripadvisior to see what was available in Antrim. Was happy with reviews of food so we popped in and were able to get a table on arrival. Shown to our table by a guy who appeared to be the owner/manager? A few spare tables... More
