Drumquin is one of my favourite local eateries. The food is outstanding, portion sizes are fantastic value for money, the staff are so friendly, nothing is a bother to them, they are so good with the children who visit, surroundings are fab. Can't recommend Drumquin enough. Looking forward to my next visit with a friend for an evening meal.

High quality guest house. The room was comfortable with toilet facilities. Tea and coffee in the room. Staff were very friendly and would go out of their way to ensure you felt welcome and catered to your needs. The food was all home made and of a high quality, large portions.

This is a very high quality establishment with superb staff and a very welcoming atmosphere. The standard of accommodation throughout is peerless and the food was simply sublime. There is a fantastic relaxed ambience and quite simply would thoroughly recommend to anyone to stay there whether for business purposes, or for relaxed pleasure.

Been for a family meal this evening, and was looking forward to it all day long. And was I not disappointed? My holy heavens, that was fantastic, I'll be dreaming about that meal all night. As always, the food was excellent, and the ambience was great, along with the service. Thoroughly recommended.

Wow, my husband and I took the kids here for a meal on a Saturday lunch time. The service was excellent, the menu was excellent, the portions were enormous and the taste was fantastic. My only tiny tiny nit pick is that the music that was playing on the MP3 behind us was fine for adults but had swear words.... More
