Good dinners reasonably priced in a family friendly pub / restaurant , slightly off the beaten track so not too busy giving you time to relax and enjoy your meal

I was hesitant to write a review for this visit. I almost did not. I don't like to speak poorly of any place, but I am honest, and I always give a true account of my experience, as other potential customers deserve to be able to decide for themselves based on TripAdvisor community members reviews. I have visited the Sportsman's... More

Nice country bar with good food and service. A great stop halfway between Belfast and Dublin just on the Irish Republic side of the border on the A1.

Steak was tender, pan fried, I much prefer chargrilled for flavour though but I could not complain about the portion sizes and also the free peppercorn sauce. Large oval plate with steak and onions and salad and a side bowl of chips. I... More
