Called in for lunch when visiting the beach at Sandhead. A simple facade does not do justice to what is inside. Very attractive public areas and tidy outside eating. We were greeted very warmly by a friendly young waiter who explained the menu and the offerings for children. What followed was terrific food and service rounded off by a very reasonable charge.

We were recommended this place to eat by some friends who live a few miles away. We were not disappointed. From the friendly welcome by the young waiter to the delicious meal from the varied menu. We were quite early and managed to get a table and by the time we had eaten the place was very busy. Would certainly recommend booking in advance if possible. We would definitely eat there again if we are back in the area.

We visited Tigh na Mara twice during our holiday-cottage stay in the area, once as a couple and again with guests. Both meals a real pleasure and great value for such beautifully presented food. Several vegetarian options (important for our guests) and a very warm welcome both times. I'd definitely come back, and am interested to see that they have rooms too. The entrance is a little unprepossessing... but once inside the restaurant we knew at once this was a great choice.

We arrived at this hotel on Sat 26th July around 16:00 in the middle of a torrential downpour. We said we would like to eat but were told no tables available. Only 5 cars were in the car park so we were a bit puzzled. Possibly they were about to cater for a function but we weren't worthy of an explanation or the offer of a sandwich at the bar. We were told we could be accommodated 4 and a half hours later at 20:30 but we politely declined. All info imparted to us in an incredibly deadpan manner. Not rude just uninterested.
