Came here last Saturday after playing at the Pipeband contest at Castle Gardens Antrim with a few friends. The place is a lot bigger than it looks on the outside. Was seated upstairs. I ordered the Firecracker Pizza and my mate got like a meat feast. Both Pizzas were cooked perfect will definitely come again if I'm up this way.... More

We called in on a Friday evening for a meal we found the food ok at best and the service was slow and not very helpful. We felt as if they were not happy to have us there as it was nearly there home time and could not be bothered with us very poor customer service

The food was good, beautifully presented and tasted yummy. I had the beer battered chicken breast burger with pepper sauce, it proved to be a good choice. Generous portion size so we didn't have dessert but opted for coffee which was delicious. Lovely surroundings and atmosphere but could do with a little dusting, seemed very clean otherwise. You can see... More

Good choice on the menu, food was piping hot and well presented. We had the battered mushrooms on a skewer for starters, delicious. Chicken goujons & sea salt chips as a main course, plenty on the plate. No room for a dessert though which was disappointing :(

Ate last night in Ruby's restaurant, having previously been on a Thursday for their steak night we thought we would try a Saturday night. Extremely disappointed with the food. I ordered the beer battered fish which was described on the menu as having malt vinegar spiked mushy peas and tartar sauce. When I received it the fish was fine but... More

First time to visit as we were told food was very good. Slightly hard to locate as we were looking for the Back Shed but could only see Rubys. Restaurant is upstairs and staff are very welcoming and friendly. Food was really good and excellent portions. My husband had the steak and really enjoyed it. The sweet potato fries were... More

We spent several hours here on a Saturday night, bar staff were friendly and service although very busy later in the evening was quick and efficient, we tried all the beers as you do when visiting different areas, the Guinness was well kept and one of the better ones we tried throughout our stay in Ireland, as it takes a...

I'm from Antrim and live in Manchester but everytime I'm home I try and get a trip here with my dad. Pizzas are so good. The last visit we branched out and tried the steak and burger. Burger was really juicy and my dad thought his steak was better than his other favourite steak spot so good job. The dragons... More

On holiday and making certain to not eat at chain restaurants... This was a fantastic choice! Appetizers were amazing! Had the fried mushrooms and also the prawns.... Both were great! Dinner we opted for small pizzas each and what an amazing job they do of a little pizza! 9" is just right for one. Bottle of wine, great service and... More
