Was surprised this restaurant is so nice. Bigger than I imagined. Good and varied menu, lots to choose from. Nice seating arrangement. Ideal for couples or groups

My wife and I tend to visit Ruby's/backshed quite regularly and always have a 10 out of 10 experience, the place is always welcoming the staff always go above their expectations, and the food is always out of this world, this is our favourite place to dine I'd rather stop in for a feed in Antrim than a night to...

Have been to the Back Shed many times over the last 3 years with my last visit being at the end of the summer 2016. I've always enjoyed the atmosphere both up stairs and down stairs. I've always had a meal when there and have to say it is consistently good with nice alternative specials to mix things up. Portion... More

Friendly and attentive service. A good choice of dishes for the two courses for thirteen pounds. The half chicken and roast beef sirloin my girlfriend and I had were both delicious and good sized portions.

My wife and I went to Ruby's at the Back Shed for an early evening meal about 6:30. There was plenty of seats available and we were met and shown to a table by a very pleasant waitress. She brought us both the main menu and the Early Bird menu ( served before 7:00 ). We both ordered chicken from... More

A few of us went for the steak night which is great value at £12 per steak with a free drink (including alcoholic drink). Fantastic value but despite ordering a very well done steak it arrived and once I cut into it there was blood all over the plate. I couldn't eat it so I sent it back but when... More

Welcome *** Restaurant staff ***** Bar staff *** Main course *** Sweet ** This was very much pub grub and plenty of it. Vegetables were very good and crunchy but lukewarm which was a pity. I believe that my chocolate cake was from a catering mix! If your hungry and need a good feed this pub maybe your answer! Thanks... More
