Staying in the slieve donard for two nights so we decided to walk the 150 yrds or so to the Percy French for an evening meal. We hadn't booked a table but were told we could eat in the bar off the restaurant menu. Our order was taken by Dylan, who didn't have a docket book to write our order... More

We were staying at the Slieve Donard so came here for a convenient dinner.The staff were absolutely lovely, 2 very nice and efficient lads served us.One of the poor lads struggled to light the log burner as the wood was so damp. The restaurant itself looks a little tired, we even spotted some insulating felt left poking out of the... More

4 of us had a meal here on Saturday evening (07/01/2017). The service and the food were both great. We all had the steaks which were cooked to perfection.

Had our evening meal at the Percy French while staying at the Slieve Donard. Plumed for it as it was more reasonable in price than the oak restaurant. We ordered the brie and Italian sausage sliders to start. The brie was gorgeous, and the sliders had a nice spice to them. For mains we chose the burger and the steak... More

We booked a Groupon deal for lunch which was running out. We rang the restaurant and explained it was due to expire so we wanted to book. Knowing how Groupon work we asked TWICE if they wanted the code so they could claim it within the time-limit but were assured that they didn't need it and to bring it on... More

My wife and I are currently in Newcastle on our anniversary break. We love this beautiful hotel here ( Slieve Donard) but were so disappointed tonight with a few aspects of our meal in Percy French. Firstly, we waited almost one hour between ordering and receiving the food- we were both absolutely ravenous and couldn't believe the wait was so... More

A fantastic restaurant with friendly staff and great food . Suitable for all ages young and old as they have a kids menu as well. Will definitely be back very soon as I was well impressed.

We were staying at the Slieve Donard Hotel after Christmas, a family of 10. We decided to go for the £18 meal for two courses and a glass of wine at Percy French. All but one of us had soft drinks plus a variety of the meals. Everyone of us were blown away by the very tasty, well cooked, meals.... More

I came here with my partner while I was visiting from England. The Percy French recommended by my parents who live in the area. We arrived mid afternoon and asked for a table to which we were politely confirmed would be available in 15 mins. 40 minutes past by and we were finally seated. After being seated we scaled the...
