We were in the area and went for midweek lunch to the Spinnaker on recommendation. First impressions were that the decor was o.k. but nothing to write home about. When we arrived around 1:30pm there were only a couple of other tables occupied. When shown to the table we weren't initially offered menus, so requested these after a few minutes waiting. We ordered main courses from the menu and waited as a few more customers arrived. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy but for the majority of the time only one person was taking orders and serving meals. We had to wait for 40-45 minutes until our meals (chicken / fish) were eventually served. When they arrived they were very tasty - no complaints with the cooking. However I definitely think they could improve the speed of service.

This has been the fourth year we have been to the Spinnaker with a large group of people 60+ Each year they have provided us with a great choice of menu, great service, excellent presentation and most of all, the food was freshly cooked and cooked to perfection. They also had a great joice of menu for children. Hopefully we will be taking our group back there next year. So if your in Strangford area, and feeling hungry, the Spinnaker would be the place to go.

Love this place!! Have been a few times and in my opinion it gets better and better! Homemade pate is gorgeous and comes highly recommended! The bushmills and pepper sauce that comes with the steak is so moreish! And as for the home made hand cut chips..just don't get them anywhere else..so make sure and order a portion!!
Being able to bring your own bottle helps cut costs and they don't even charge corkage which is another wee bonus!
Go ahead...don't drive past, call in.. You won't be disappointed.
