This was a special occasion for our family and we were treated like royalty and the food and presentation were superb. Well done Mary!

We’ve enjoyed afternoon tea in Belfast and Ballymena. This time we thought we’d head to the farmhouse at The Byre. Country chic is evident throughout the well-presented premises and this is extended through to the afternoon tea. Mary catered for our party’s request for no butter or mayo as well as decaffeinated tea, this was absolutely no problem. It’s the little things that help this afternoon tea stand out, for example, the antique silver wear, the tea sets and the overall warm and welcoming, relaxed feeling. The home cooked scones were a real winner as well as the little chocolates. Our only criticism would be that you have to really book in advance due to popularity.

Mary served us a delicious afternoon tea one sunny afternoon in the garden room and we couldn’t ask for anything more. Tantalizing chocolate moose cups, a various arrangement of fine finger sandwiches, fresh homemade scones with cream, jam and strawberries, panna cotta, chocolate truffles and much more. We left totally satisfied and our taste buds happy. The attention to detail throughout the byre is fantastic with a great homely and warm feeling. Mary was professional and catered for our vegetarian and gluten free needs. The Byre is located 5 minutes drive from Maghera. We really appreciated the free WiFi and spotlessly clean toilet facilities. Highly recommend and reservations needed.
