Great place to eat any thing from breakfast to lunch coffee afternoon tea and they do a fantastic dessert menu. You can do a bit of shopping while your there meat veg desserts ready made dinners bit more expensive but worth the visit if you go at lunch time make sure your there early or you will have to que.

Have had several excellent breakfasts and lunches at McKee's. Great services, great food grown/raised and prepared on site and a beautiful view over the Craigantlet Hills to boot sure you couldn't beat it with big stick! The farm shop is also well worth a visit four quality food and gifts.

Always busy so that's a good sign. The downside is having to queue,but they move the queues along quite efficiently. The reward for waiting is pleasant service and a good choice of freshly prepared dishes. If you're seated on the right hand side of the restaurant the view down towards Strangford Lough on a clear day is stunning. The farm... More

We arranged to meet at Mckees over the Easter Holidays. As usual, it was very busy and we had to queue- however, the queue does move quickly. We each enjoyed our lunch - toasties, baked potatoes, sandwiches were our choices. It was fresh and delicious.

Went here a couple of times recently with my wife, once for breakfast and once for a lunchtime snack. The food is ok but a bit expensive. For instance the breakfast sodas are nowhere near the size of those sold in the shop. Top marks for being one the few places in Northern Ireland that gets the idea of free... More
