Defiantly enjoyed my two meals here. They were very large platefuls of good home Ulster cooking and you will not go home hungry.

Disappointed with food ordered on this visit. Fish and chips was greasy with soggy batter on the fish. Service was average. Pleasant enough surroundings but lacked atmosphere.

We hadn't booked on an early Thursday evening and we're lucky to get a table. We ordered off the early bird menu - lasagne, salad and chips & cheeseburger, salad & chips. The service was good and the order came quickly. We enjoyed every morsel of our food - tasty and wholesome. The price was very reasonable too. We'll be... More

Then imagine..... spying the cocktail menu and thinking "yea I'd like something different"! So we... More

Very friendly staff and the food was excellent. Had my husband's 70th birthday party upstairs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Everyone voted to go back again in a few weeks for my daughter's 40th birthday party because of the excellent venue and the terrific atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend Ownies.

I had booked it three weeks before so when we arrived to be told there was no booking for us it was very disappointing. My son and his wife and family had arrived first so they were trying to get it sorted. Then our next son... More
