Great view, beers were cold, irish coffee was hot. Convenient after a long hike on the Giants Causeway.

“What a friendly place.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The three girls that were serving on 27th June in the evening were a delight. Friendly, helpful and dining there was a pleasure. Food was very good and well priced. Customer care in the nook is great.

“A quick pint of Belfast Lager”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

After 7 hours on a coach and a tramp over the Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and another around Giant's Causeway I just had time for a wonderfully refreshing pint of Belfast Lager before hopping back on the coach to Belfast itself.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Our hotel receptionist recommended the Nook for refreshment on our trip to Giant's Causeway & while my expectations were low given its proximity to a major tourist site, I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived in the middle of the lunchtime peak, but the food ordering system is remarkably efficient & food arrived quite quickly. The Irish stew at £8:50 was superb & the burger, while expensive at £9:95, was high quality. The bar service could have been more efficient.

“Good lunch spot”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Good stop for lunch after a morning of hiking Giants Causway. Irish stew with homemade bread was hearty tasty. The fish soup was more like a stew, lovely creamy soup with lots of fish and shellfish.
