Loved the variety of the menu. Appreciated that they had a menu for vegetarians in addition to the main menu - also with good variety of choices. Delicious food and very helpful and friendly service.

Absolutely love their strawberry daiquiris...they are amazing!!! Can honestly say they are the best in Lisburn! Food is great here as well (can be quite expensive though!) Great bar with a fantastic selection of spirits/drinks.

This place used to be a great bar, however the new staff are incredibly rude and the drinks are massively overpriced, bad clientele with a lot of fights...not to mention the toilets are a disgrace. We won't be backMore
