Driving once again up the Coast Road on a lovely October day and decided to try here for lunch - great idea! It is a lovely hotel and I ate in the Coach House Bistro. Very well appointed room and a lovely friendly and helpful girl behind the bar [25th Oct '16]. I was spoilt for choice with the food... More

We went there for dinner with our two Kids. It looks very nice from the outside; the interior is old-fashioned, nur also nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We thought it was a bit peculiar to be seated in a waiting area to order our meals, but it somehow matched the ambience. The menu offeres a... More

Whilst visiting family in Carrikcfergus we drove out along the beautiful coastal road to Carnlough and stopped here for lunch. The chowder was amazing and was the best I've ever eaten, served with a very tasty scone. The hotel was quite old fashioned but in a good traditional way. Would recommend the food here.

We had always liked this restaurant, but we hadn't been in Carnlough for a few years. Last Sunday we had a lovely drive along the beautiful Antrim coast road, and decided to have an evening meal in the Coach House. Our welcome was friendly, but we were 'pointed to' rather than 'shown to' our table near the bar. Menus together... More

Lovely looking restaurant from the outside and that is carried through as it is very nicely 'old-fashioned'. Staff very pleasant but 35 minute wait for our lunch and although beautifully presented it was a little bland. I had the cajun chicken with champ which were both nicely cooked but did lack flavour as did my partners chicken goujons. A great... More

Service was excellent and although the goos... More

Decided it was time we gave the restaurant at the Londonderry Arms a try as we had been for a very long time. The hotel and restaurant have a pleasant ambiance, traditional rather than modern decor, it has a small car park opposite but there is plenty of street parking close by. We had booked for 7pm but waited until... More

We were on the road up the coast and did not have a booking but called in and were greeted warmly, seated without hassle and had our food served very efficiently. Mussels, chicken fillet burger and vegetarian option - all were really tasty, and portion size was very good value. The place was busy but never made feel like we... More
