Great service and excellent food. Liked the setting, enter an old pub then make your way upstairs to a gorgeous dining area.

Recently had lunch in The Blackstone with the girls from work. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and efficient and our meal was very well priced.

Would recommend it to anyone and look forward to next time.

This was recommended by the staff in the guest house we were staying in. We started in the bar downstairs, which wasn't the friendliest of places, but that all changed when we went upstairs to the restaurant.

We were welcomed in a very friendly manner and shown to our table. Service continued to be attentive and friendly (if a little unprofessional at times) all evening. And the food was all really good. I'd definitely recommend it.

My husband and I have been going here for a few years now and on a regular basis. First class food showing imagination and expertise. We have NEVER had a poor meal and always leave ranting about how gorgeous it was. The staff are really friendly and professional with nothing being any bother. I regularly take the duck dish (the dauphinoise potatoes are to die for) and my husband a fish dish, and if money could afford, we would eat there more than our usual twice a month. I would thoroughly recommend the Blackstone to anyone who enjoys excellent food in a pleasant atmosphere. Weekend specials are superb. It is by far the best eating place in Ballymena and beyond, having tried numerous places and there being nothing else to compare to it. Just love it!!!

visited the Blackstone last week and as usual it was very good. It always has a good atmosphere and the staff are very helpful especially the blonde foreign girl who seems to be in charge.
