Came here for a meal last night with some friends. Very friendly staff. Food was excellent but quite expensive. Everyone enjoyed their meal but no atmosphere in the place. Maybe better at the weekend's. Found the drinks expensive. A small glass of Proseco was nearly £7.

Had a delicious dinner on Tuesday night. Confit duck with red cabbage to start, followed by pan fried cod with fishcake bombs and homemade tartare sauce. No complaints from me! It was sooo good, and if you are looking for a proper dining experience then it's head and shoulders above anywhere else in Ballymena! Glad to see restaurant was busy... More

We hadn't eaten here in a while and see it's under new ownership, again. We visited on a Saturday evening, it was busy but not full. I had one of the specials, belly pork with root vegetables. The belly pork was excellent and possibly the best I've had in a very long time, the root vegetables however consisted of a... More

According to the waiter the chef, Chris, had been a star in the Michelin factory canteen but, with the closure of the tyre plant, he managed to get a job here. Have I got that right?? We had lunch and it wasn't very good. My wife's fish pie was verging on inedible and my scallops were OK, but pretty tasteless... More

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.
