Stopped here for an evening meal and returned the next night it was that good. Helpful friendly staff especially Shirley who couldn't do enough for us. Steaks were cooked to perfection with a big portion of champ or chips, onion rings and garnish. Excellent value on a Thursday as its steak night and only £10 can't wait to return

We had been recommended to eat at the Mayfly and we were not disappointed. We had 4 Steak dinners, cooked to perfection. Mushrooms & onion rings & loads of chips. It was so nice. The deserts were gorgeous. I would certainly return if I was in the area again. The staff were lovely and friendly. What more could you ask... More

The Mayfly Inn will make you fell right at home no matter what the background. Pros: Great food at great prices. Large portions. Staff super friendly Ample seating Cons TV in background drives me insane. Portions may extremely oversized. Kitchen closes at 9:00pm which was not revealed at time of booking. The decor and atmosphere was plain.

I love a steak and during a stay in Kesh decided to try the Mayfly's steak night on a Thursday. 2 steaks and all the trimmings for £20. The food is plentiful no questions about that but do not expect a rare steak! You will get it well done but do what I did, enjoy and accept what it is;... More

Called in yesterday not having booked in advance, was able to get a table for myself and 8 other family members! The staff were absolutely lovely, nothing was a problem & we felt just at home. The food was out of this world for the bar snack menu and was a great price for the high quality of food we... More

This place never fails to impress, I ordered a mini steak and I can tell you mini must have a different meaning here in fermanagh as there was nothing mini about it! Another inviting fermanagh restaurant who go out of their way to feed to you well and not rip you off! First class guys.. Thanks

Really hard to fault here. Great food, really friendly staff and huge American size portions. We made the mistake of having starters which meant we really struggled to eat our mains. Starters average around £5 & mains £15 (steaks £19) so great value. Place consists of a pub at the main road with the restaurant behind it. Decor is ok,... More

Great atmosphere with a laid back atmosphere. Food reasonable and well priced. Pub at front with restaurant to rear and service ok but occasionally the barman is serving drinks as well as being the waiter, but after all it's Fermanagh time!

When the waitress was told she laughed and said we dont deep fry our food dear.. funny the food was doing the backstroke across the plate.. when plates collected again asked if... More
