“Dining Room Locked after calling with guests that I'd recommended to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had had lovely meals here earlier in the summer, so when guests were here for The Lammas Fair, took them expecting the same lovely meals and service. Meals were being served in the bar area but it was fairly crowded. Dining room turned out to be locked, so we went across the road to The Carrick a Rede Bar who were not serving meals!. So down the road to the Red Door Tea Rooms, who had a coach party of a family reunion in the main restaurant, but offered to cater for us in the Garden Summer House, which was delightful. Food all served out to us with politeness and hospitality. Delighted with The Red Door, but have to say disappointed with both Fullerton Arms and Carrick-a Rede Bar!. Not a good shop window for Ballintoy and Causeway Coast tourism.

“Lovely staff, terrible food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

My wife and I went for lunch today and had possibly the worst meal I have ever had out in my life.

I had the chicken goujons, they were greasy, bland and pretty awful. This came with garlic sauce that didn't taste of garlic, and a side order of greasy rubbery chips. My wife had the chilli chicken pasta, which was meant to have a creamy sauce, the sauce was thin, had no spice, and was completely bland.

We were only after a basic meal of 'bar snacks' however this was truly awful.

The toilets also were dirty and run down.

Apart from this the bar staff were lovely and very friendly.

“Service and Food Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Very friendly staff and the food was served hot and was quite tasty. Go here if you are hungry and/or thirsty. Very convenient after doing the rope bridge.
