I got the beef and guiness pie which sounded much better than it actually was. It was okay, but didn't impress me like I thought it would. The waitstaff, however, were extremely friendly and chatted with us about our travels and recommended sites to see....More

...and the food was average. Nearly lost the final point for starting to close up around us- laying out breakfast- at seriously 9pm. Made us feel really welcome so we left!

We were pleasantly surprised by the variety. Seven of us each ordered something different and we all enjoyed our choice. Locals (always a good sign) and visitors were both here. Our B&B recommended this when we couldn't get into Bushmills for dinner. Make a reservation.

Maybe we chose the wrong dishes ? Some of the food being served looked ok. But the Chowder was disappointing and the Beef and guinness pie tasteless. Side dishes ok - large portions. Lamb fatty and overpriced. Would not go back.

Located outside Bushmills but well worth the short trip out. A lovely place and beautiful food, plenty of helpful staff. A very clean pleasant place to eat. Definitely recommend a visit if in area.
