“Great pizza and excellent service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The fresh pizza here is great, loads of toppings to choose from and good value too. All 3 of us had pizza so can't really comment on the other menu items except for dessert. Had a lemon meringue pie and a chocolate fondant - the pie wasn't up to scratch, the meringue wasn't crispy on top and the lemon curd a crumbly consistency, just didn't taste fresh. And the fondant wasn't a fondant at all - it was a chocolate pudding which had been microwaved as the inside was roasting hot but not runny at all. If you stick to the pizza you can't go wrong, I think that's their speciality. Also if they could turn the music down upstairs a bit it would be great, at 6pm on a Saturday night it was full of families so loud music isn't suitable. Otherwise a nice meal!

“Great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went to the Back Shed for a birthday party last night. The staff were friendly and extremely accommodating, nothing was too much bother. The food was well presented and very tasty. Just remember that the pizzas are quite big 9either 9" or 12") so difficult to manage along with a side order. The atmosphere was great and a live band entertained in the latter part of the evening. Would definitely recommend.

“Gorgeous as usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

This would be my "go to" in antrim. It's honestly the best place for food!!! Service is great and food is lovely.
I live the New Orleans and the chicken Maryland pizza. The coleslaw is lovely and the dragons tongue is really nice.... Tho sometimes a little underdone.
If you need to eat out in antrim.... The back shed is the place to go.
