Quick pint waiting for coach pick-up. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely views if you can get a seat outside. Toilets not kept clean and tidy.

We stopped in here after our hike down to the Giant's Causeway. A perfect place for a pint or two before getting back on our tour. The staff was helpful but not engaging even though we were nearly the only patrons. We found this to be quite rare as everywhere else we visited the local folks and staff were very... More

We had lunch here before visiting The Giants Causeway. Soup of the day was freshly made and very tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Altogether, a nice experience. We would eat here again.

When you've done the Giant's Causeway walk you need a place to refuel and this is it. Staff were charming and helpful, the food very good and sensibly priced, and it's an interesting and welcoming building.

Waiters weren't very savvy, Guinness was nice. I had a lovely time with family but I would say it gets windy outside and this isn't a reflection of the nook.

Good food, served quickly. The restaurant was packed. They took our order at the bar and brought the food very quickly, which we needed because we had to get back on the bus. My husband had Irish stew and I had tomato and basil soup, and they were both very good.

I expected this place to "break the bank" since it is literally right on the path back from the Giant's Causeway but we were pleasantly surprised and the prices were fine. The food was delicious and there were a lot of options on the menu. Lots of character in this place too because it used to be the old schoolhouse.... More

Recommed a visit to this quaint & pretty pub. Staff super friendly and food was amazing! Not too busy considering location and car park for patrons to rear.

It is situated perfectly as I imagine an old Irish cottage on the countryside. An old cozy stone house with beautiful view of the bay and the fields. When I was there it was raining slightly outside and it felt perfect to be at the Nook. The meny is very simple and the food is filling but not so much... More
