Now called 'Ruby's', got our family together for a night out and a few drinks. Staff are great, atmosphere is spot on. Everything turned out well, so no complaints. Will definitely be back.

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

My Granny and I ate here on Wednesday 3rd August 2016 for lunch (first time eating lunch under the new name Rubys). My granny had the special which was stuffed chicken breast, wrapped in bacon with roasted stir fry veg and I had salted chill chicken strips and pita bread (starter) and it was delicious, very filling. There was one... 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

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
