This attractive restaurant is on the main road in Garvagh, on the way from Donegal to the Giant's Causeway area in Northern Ireland. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was a bit slow but there is free Wifi available!

Many thanks to Brenda and her team for a fantastic day yesterday for our daughters christening. Food was delicious, first class service, pleasant attentive staff in a private function room- nothing was a bother. Catered well for everyone from toddlers to adults with no fuss - even produced a box of toys to keep the children entertained. Would definitely recommend...

Been in quite a number of times for lunch.. felt isolated no connection with the staff whatsoever. Food 100 per cent as always but would be nice to see a waiter/waitress makes all the difference. Chicken ciabatta to die for.

It had been a while since we had eaten at the vines and as it was Father's Day and my choice I chose the vines. The food was lovely and well presented but my reason for this review is the staff and management of the vines. The waiting staff were friendly efficient helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. 5 stars... More

Service was excellent, met with a smile at the door at 9pm. Food was good and beer was better. When in Garvagh definitely stop in for a bite.
