“Food just OK! New Premises.”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Called in with friend as we were just passing through area. After asking for a table for two, explaining we had not booked , we were just told to take a seat and he would see. 10 mins later I decided we had waited long enough, the waiter appeared and brought us to a table, no apology for keeping us waiting etc. There were empty tables when we entered premises and there were same empty tables the whole time we were there so didn't understand this business at !
Another 10 mins later a waiter took our drinks order, another 15 mins later a waitress took our food order. It is a very safe menu, nothing spectacular or no surprises!
The plates were not very warm though the food was hot enough. The food was okay.
Even though we declined dessert, our bill never came. We waited & waited, then headed to the bar to pay. 10 mins or more passed, a couple at the bar drinking, who I realised knew I was becoming annoyed at being ignored, called a waiter over to take my money. Then the questions, Can't find your bill, where were you sitting? Who served at your table, What did you have to eat? This is just not acceptable. Eventually we paid and Left. Enough said.

“Another fine eating experience”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I was in a large group celebrating an elderly persons birthday this weekend. We were all very impressed with this restaurant. They fed us downstairs so that going upstairs where the main seating area is located was unnecessary. Cutlery and glasses were clean. The service was quiet, efficient and discrete, the staff lovely. The food was presented in a relaxed manner and there was plenty of time between courses so that the company could chatter away without pressure.

The menu was well organised and varied with something for everyone, without trying to be too adventurous. The quality of the food was excellent and beautifully presented.

Prices are very reasonable, for food and wine. I might have wished for a slightly wider choice of wines, but those we had from towards the upper end of the cost range were excellent.

All in all I would say that this establishment deserves its third place on the Armagh league table and indeed may well deserve to be higher.

“Family dining with singular service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Fourteen of us gathered at Stonebridge last Saturday to celebrate our mother's 89th birthday. I was very pleasantly surprised at the high standard of food, the friendly and professional service and the attention given to our table despite the demands made on staff by the presence of another large party. I would without hesitation recommend this restaurant and I look forward to returning on my next visit to Armagh.

“Didnt fail to please.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Booked a large table for a birthday party and where adviced to stick with a set menu as we had so many people this was fine with use as they gave us a good choice with a meal that would do everyone except one so after a phone call they where more than happy to do something seperate for this one person. When we arrive we where pleased to be told we had the small private area down stairs to ourselves as we had so many people. Service was fantastic Kids where well catered for. they where brought pages from a colouring book and crayons and a little plate of cookies to keep them happy till the meals all arrives. couldnt have been any more perfect.
