Description: Oakleaf Restaurant is situated at the foot of the mighty Glenshane Pass, on route from Belfast to Derry City. This is a family run business established almost 20 years ago. Recently refurbished this licensed restaurant welcomes family’s of all ages and can also cater for coach parties with prior booking essential. With its open kitchen all cooking can be seen from each table. Only the freshest ingredients available are used and all sourced locally, a great meal is guaranteed. With the restaurant already having an excellent reputation, their new extension; which opened in August 2008, provides adequate space for customers to enjoy a drink before or after their meal beside an open fire ina relaxed, homely and freindly atmosphere. The new extension also allows to cater for larger parties, coach parties, birthday parties and private functions.

Order placed but got drinks wrong when bringing down.

Only 1 sausage, 1 piece of bacon, 1 back pudding and 1 white, 1 Egg. Rest made up of 1 pancake, 1 potato bread, 1 farl. Very dry and not great quality of meat etc. Was unable to finish due to dryness and lack of flavour and left hungry.

Needs some beans, mushrooms and better plus more meat.

Delightful restaurant! We were staying in Maghera for a few days and had frequented the Texaco next door for some staples and thought "how good could a restaurant next to a petrol station be..." - Fantastic!!! Great food - unique and good flavors, and fantastic friendly service. Really enjoyed our dinners - lamb, seafood, and stacked chicken along with several appetizers - - all perfectly prepared. Highly recommended!

As myself and my friend are out for lunch often I have been in the oak leaf quit often and had very good food as the staff are very good. The most outstanding waiters is Teresa, Gloria is good as well as Sheena
But I must say that Teresa is the best.
