“Warm welcome & excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We have been eating here for many years and the service is always hearty and welcoming. Whether we have been here in large groups of 50 or just 2 people, we get the same individual attention. The food is home cooked and generous portions. Brilliant atmosphere. I now have a B&B and I recommend it to all my guests and they have never been disappointed.

“Very good lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

If you don't know where the Anglers' Rest is located, it's a few minutes off the A1 on the Banbridge to Castlewellan Road and definitely worth a slight detour off the main Belfast -> Dublin route.

We called in for a light lunch and weren't disappointed. Very good soup and sandwiches coupled with excellent service and, as a bonus, good value. Hopefully we'll get a chance to return for an evening meal.

“Good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Visited here recently for sunday lunch. Despite that they were extremely busy and we had no reservation we were dealt with very efficiently and were soon shown to our table. The level of service was excellent and the lunch menu provided all that was needed and at a very competitive price.This was very good basic food with portions to exceed the wishes of the most expectations. Would not hesitate to recommend.
