I would give six stars if I could! The building itself, from the decor to the seating to the roaring fire, is top-notch. Every time we visited, we were greeted at the door by a member of their staff, all of whom had a great balance of friendliness and charm without being over-the-top. They have a very good drinks selection,... More

Dined on a Saturday evening the place was buzzing and so warm and welcoming. Prosecco on tap got us off to a great start! My friend had the fish pie special which was so tasty, creamy and substantial with such a variety of fresh fish and seafood, it was yummy. I delved into that in addition to my own cooked... More

I wouldn't have known about how good this restaurant is if it wasn't for North Coast Walking Tours, so thank you to the wonderful tour guide, Caroline, for introducing me to it. Seafood chowder is one of my favourite dishes and I couldn't praise this one any higher. Thick and creamy and chock full of locally sourced fish and shellfish,... More

Came here with friends and family after spending the day at Giants Causeway. The food and service was amazing. This was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten (I lived in the USA for 7 years). The staff were so friendly. I really recommend it.

The Central Wine Bar is a sheer delight. You'll pay between £10-£15 for a main course. But don't be put off by this. The food worth every penny. The chefs here are clearly top notch and I've never been disappointed. I've eaten and reviewed some restaurants on Trip Advisor with big name chefs attached.
