We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner. Most of their menu is fairly light fare, but they had a Roast Beef platter with potatoes, vegetables etc. It was quite generous, delicious and very reasonably priced. So, be sure to ask about their specials!

Dropped into the very friendly and spotlessly clean copper kettle following our Giants Causeway visit. Staff were lovely, food was lovely home style. I had the Irish stew for £6, my wife had fish and chips for £7 and the kids had chicken goujons. All...More

We had breakfast here and I'd recommend the Ulster Fry. Delicious food well cooked and service was good. Very busy but worth the wait if no table available.
