We love Harry's. Great value on their early bird menu which you can get on a Saturday night as well. Great big portion as well and lovely staff. A lovely casual night out with lots of charm. We will be back soon

Booked this restaurant for a special family meal, wish we had done our homework as couldn't agree more with the two poor reviews.
Firstly, clearly arrived with a disabled family member who can only walk supported and with a crutch, we were walked ALL around the bar to our seat, despite the fact it was actually right opposite the entrance.
Secondly, the food took forever, and to say it was average was an understatement. The steak was cold, the fish pie required a fisherman to find the fish, the chicken was overcooked and the battered fish was fried to within an inch of being reawakened. Plus strangest tartare sauce I have ever tasted (pesto??) and cold mushy peas. I also wouldn't bother with desserts.
Thirdly, service, we sat for ages after our first drinks were finished, we actually had to visit the bar to ask someone to come and take another order. At the end of our meal, we were asked if we were finished, and when we said we were half our plates were cleared, it was 20 minutes before anyone returned to clear the remainder, and we were sat there with no drinks.
I have never not left a tip in my life, but I have to admit this was the first time.

Had a meal in Harry's wine bar and it was most disappointing. Starters cold and undercooked. Mains cold and served on dirty plates. The main restaurant is very good but we certainly won't be dining in the wine bar again.

Wanted to find a good family friendly restaurant in Cookstown so decided on The bistro at Tullylagan as it was some 20 years since I was last there. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who was attentive and courteous, unfortunately that is where my complimentry comments must stop. We had to wait approx 30 minutes for our food and when it did arrive it was..OK! We had four 'average' adult meals and three kids none of which were worthy of any real positive comments. Overall a very average experience. It may be another 20 years before I try here again.
