Enjoyed the layout of the venue i enjoyed the clam chowder starter and then the steak perfectly cooked although it never came with a sauce . It was a wee bit pricey but perfect portion size kids loved the food. With so many other venues around i doibt il go a third time unless theres a menu change.

A well appointed hotel with lovely views spacious bedrooms good food and friendly staff. Ample parking for those travelling on the North coastal route. The Giants Causeway is just a mile up the road and Bushmills distillery about a mile in the opposite direction. We enjoyed our stay.

A lovely fishing and old cottage themed restaurant. Hearty soup and a range of breads was perfect for a light lunch. Service was efficient and the interior warm and cosy. I have eaten here before and loved both the food and homely atmosphere.

We arrived here after visiting the Giants' Causeway which is about a mile distant. It is on the main road which was relatively a quiet road. The outside of the Inn was attractive and there was ample parking spaces with sufficient disabled parking giving easy access to the Inn Entrance on a tar mac type road suitable for wheelchairs etc....

Dropped in on a day trip and had lunch in the Inn which is a very unique building. Food was plentiful, price reasonable and service good. Lots of variety in food choices from large menu including specials. Seafood chowder was terrific. The bar area is unique and marine themed. Definitely worth a visit.
