In Hill Street just across from the main shopping area. this pub has a rather plain appearance and a generally quite bqr downstairs, gut upstairs is a neat restaurant. The food was quality especially the mussels starter, Every dine was perfectly cooked and the service was efficient and pleasant..
I have eaten both lunch and dinner, with large parties and as a couple and found the staff more than able to handle all situations and maintain high standards. I cannot but recommend a visit for lunch or an evening meal.

We called in on the off chance for lunch on Sunday and what a treat we had. The service was good , staff very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and well presented. My hubby had the mussels for starters which he said was one of the best starters he has ever had.
Will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Compliments to the chef! In a nut shell the food was 1st class. My daughter had a prawn curry and she us also dairy intolerant so this dish was done in coconut milk and it was fab, I had toasted goats cheese with a side of garlic fries the whole meal was.... fantastic. If your in Ballymena you have to go. Well done to the chef and keep doing what you are already doing x

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.
