We were staying overnight at the Londonderry Arms and as the Tapestry restaurant was not available we opted for the Coach House.and contrary to the spiteful reviews from Timeout176 ( who seemed to have a big chip on his/her shoulder and not one supplied from the kitchen) and also a few others and what has the sectarian hang up got...

Although quite close to where we live we had never used this restaurant before. Would have to say the service and food were very good. Probably the portion sizes would be our only problem but other than this everything else was fine. I would recommend this restaurant and will use again

I had the pleasure of eating in the Londonderry Arms Hotel during Eel-eat week. They had a fantastic starter of Smoked Lough Neagh Eel and Glenarm Smoked Salmon on homemade wheaten bread, with poached egg. The Steak for our main was perfectly cooked and the desserts were completely made by hand and delicious. The service was efficient and attentive and... More

The bistro was pretty busy (dinner time on a weekend evening) but we were seated very quickly. Our waitresses were nice but the food took a really long time to get served (noticed several times people who came in after us got their food before us - we did not order anything that should have taken long to cook) and...

Sorry to say but the food was absolutely terrible. We ordered sausage and mash and Chicken Maryland thinking it would be fun indulgent pub food. The sausages were horrible, I actually went to a play afterwards and had to rush out to the loo half an hour in. The Chicken Maryland felt like bad over cooked food. The service was... More

We stopped at the Londonderry Arms Coach House Bistro for lunch on our way up the Antrim coast. There were four of us. The Bistro had a traditional, cozy decor that was warm and welcoming. The owner stopped by to visit with us for a few minutes and told the story of when a U.S. Presidents entourage stayed there some... More

We went two days in a row because the food was so delicious. Main courses and dessert were absolutely stunning and the restaurant had a lovely and quaint ambience. Shortbread and whitebread are also damn tasty.

Stopped in for dinner while passing through the town. Everything my party ordered was delicious and presented beautifully! The staff was friendly and our food came promptly even with nearly every table occupied. The decor may be a little dated but I would definitely recommend having a meal here!

we called in for lunch as the galley was closed (again) We both had fish and chips, with a glass of wine and a beer . It came to £38 for what was a very average pub meal.

This place is literally a gem. It has everything you would expect from an Irish restaurant/pub: Very nice beer, good service, quality food and a fireplace. The location is fantastic as it's 30 seconds away from the marina. The food is served in a decent timeframe and is really tasty. The price is average. In the area, is definitely the... More
