“Surprisingly good lunch!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Have never been to Carrickfergus before and chose The Swift as a place to have lunch as it was next to the Castle which we were visiting. The quality of the food was excellent. I had a fish dish which was fresh and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. The venue was pleasant and reasonably busy. The service was fairly slow however and an extra bottle of water (provided free on the table) never arrived. Staff were however friendly and I look forward to going there again.
