we called in for lunch as we were passing through in late November. The restaurant was clean and warm, the staff were very friendly and there was a good selection on the menu. We had the sausages which were a special that day (sausages doesn't sound like a special but the dish as a whole was a special and the... More

So after a great meal next door, we decided to come into the Coach House and listen to son live music. The two young ladies played and sang some excellent songs, great voices and a great spot for either intimacy or for a group gathering. Staff again very friendly!!

The menu was a bit of a let down - I had expected more from the reviews. The fact that the place was pretty full for a dark autumn night gave it a lively aspect. Food itself was okay - nothing extra special. Service very good though.

My husband and I had lunch here whilst touring the Antrim coast. If you like grey chicken fillets that are as tough as a shoe insole, deep fried in batter...with oil dripping off it, swimming on the plate, stale bun, half a lettuce leaf and some chips that taste of fish then this is the place for you. If you... More

The menu was varied and had something for everyones taste albeit at... 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
