Never been disappointed with the food in the back shed. Good size of portions and staff always been friendly. The back shed has a great selection of beers including clonmel, estrella damn and heverlee. Well worth a visit at lunch or for dinner.

Popped in today with the wife, lovely restaurant upstairs, only one other table in so we're seated quickly, food was reasonable, she had the goujons and I had the sausages and mash, good quality sausages although the potatoes seemed to be smash, waitress was very pleasant, would go back😀

Excellent meal here this evening. Excellent food and service. Came across this place by luck while taking friends to airport. It is now called Ruby's.

One of my favourite pubs in Antrim. With the Cova at the front it's a great place to socialise. Good on rugby days with big TVs at the bar. In the evening they have musicians which always adds to a great night out.

Wanting a better choice than from the 4 Fish & Chip Shops found, directed to Ruby's "Back Shed". Somewhat hidden in heritage sector but worth tracking down - restaurant area is on top floor; bar area below. Good selection of very well prepared food with appreciated large portions after a hungry day ! Quite busy on a Tuesday evening indicating... More

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
