On our way to Ballykelly for a 3 day outing, our group of 67 arranged to have breakfast. These past 9 years our group have travelled to many eating establishments in numerous different locations in and around Northern Ireland and I can honestly say that the service, hospitality and especially the breakfast in the Drapers Arms was second to none. We will most certainly be recommending this establishment and our return visit is inevitable.

Me and my girlfriend has been here a number of times now and have found the food has been continuously good. It has never dropped in portion size or quality and the price is very reasonable. We will definitely definitely be back.

I have ate here a couple times before and the food is beautiful!! You can tell its good local food cooked fresh every-time. I had the Rump steak and it was cooked perfectly, i have also had a lot of other dishes on the menu and have been told by the friendly polite staff that it will be changing soon and and a lot more dishes will be added and i cant wait to sample these too. Have read the bad comments and feel this is unfair as they are lovely people trying to start a business for themselves and others just cant be happy or share this industry with them. However i 100% recommend The Drapers Arms to anyone and will be returning soon :)
