We were pleasantly surprised by the variety. Seven of us each ordered something different and we all enjoyed our choice. Locals (always a good sign) and visitors were both here. Our B&B recommended this when we couldn't get into Bushmills for dinner. Make a reservation.

Maybe we chose the wrong dishes ? Some of the food being served looked ok. But the Chowder was disappointing and the Beef and guinness pie tasteless. Side dishes ok - large portions. Lamb fatty and overpriced. Would not go back.

Located outside Bushmills but well worth the short trip out. A lovely place and beautiful food, plenty of helpful staff. A very clean pleasant place to eat. Definitely recommend a visit if in area.

Conveniently located just outside of Bushmills on the way to Giants Causeway,they offer a good selection of food, but we just had to have their mussels. They were excellent and plentiful. The atmosphere is nice and friendly, and the service was very good. Definitely recommended.
