“Service was excellent- food was just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

From the moment we went in the waiter was very attentive and helpful. We had been to Giant's Causeway and were cold and hungary.
The food was ok, I had a house burger, it was a bit burnt. My partner had peppered chicken, it was with new potatoes which were deep fried and quite greasy. Overall, I thought the meal was average.
There was a lovely big fire in the bar, which was very relaxing. I hated the music playing, it was annoying. I probably would visit again due to the service being so good.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We stopped for a late lunch and were not disappointed. Great food and service at good price. We were definitely outside normal lunch hour so were pleasantly surprised.
