A friend had told me about their burgers, one of their “specials”. I wrote this down: Crossgar 6oz steak burgers topped with smoked applewood cheese, served with tomato, lettuce, onion & skinny fries – for £7.90. I took a photograph, in case you didn’t believe me when I tell you tthat you get a great mound of chips. My friend actually shares this meal between two people, because the portions are so generous! I was actually very tempted to try the other special, it was Cooleeny goats cheese and cherry tomato quiche with house salad. I’ll go back another day for that. I like to see good “norn iron / irish” food in a locally owned restaurant.
The one thing wrong was that I had no room left for a dessert, but I bought a little something for later in one of those takeaway boxes. They do very nice cakes!
I do like the music they play in the old tea house. The staff are very good. The paintings on the walls keep changing, and the whole room takes you back in time.
