Chris is back and that says it all. We called in for dinner mid week with the three kids and weren't disappointed. I had the Pork Belly and Jayne had the Hake, both were top of the tree.

I ate here on Saturday 15th October at 7pm with my wife, 2 1/2 year old and new-born child. We were made to feel very welcome from the start. The individual blackboard and chalk was a big hit with our toddler. I got a sense of a family friendly environment, something lacking at other Ballymena restaurants. The food - exquisite.... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Eagle today. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu was perfect, something for everyone while remaining interesting and focused. The scallops were delicious and I loved the addition of some samphire - great touch. The risotto was also great - very flavoursome. Best risotto I've had in a long time! Too full for... More

The menu had changed from our previous visit but a good range of food on offer to suit our large party. The kids menu had plenty on offer and portion size was more than adequate for the older children in our party. The service was good but perhaps a bit inexperienced ? All in all we had a good meal.

Nice setting and good service with friendly and communicative staff. Menu used to be great especially at lunchtime. New management has gone for a deep fried everything menu. Even the chicken wings were battered. Absolutely ghastly! Nothing for a light or healthy lunch or dinner. Also quite expensive. Drinks very bad value. Definitely one to avoid. Which is such a...

Happened to visit recently at short notice. On arrival the venue wasn't busy but we still had to approach staff to ask to be seated. Menu looked fine. My wife chose crab claws and i had pate. Claws were poor to say the least and meat would not come off the claw. Bread that accompanied was too hard to break... More

Food was top level but the service wasn't great. One of our orders also got mixed up with a few things missing.

So my faith has once more been restored yet again. They have a new chef here at this little restaurant set in the beautiful surroundings of Galgorm Golf Club on the outskirts of Ballymena. We had the opportunity of lunch Tuesday and Friday last week. Tuesday's was fabulous (thank you Simon) Friday's was a disaster and believe it or not... More
