Have stopped twice, just for a mid afternoon cocktail. Sat at the bar, bar tender very nice, wine and beer ok. Only reason we probably won't return is both times there were a couple of fowl mouthed individuals at the bar. Bar was full and...More

I found the food to be average. Breakfast is better then other meals. You must keep in mind that it is a tavern and hence the patronage is what you would expect at a bar or tavern.

We live up the road and stop here often for breakfast. The staff is very friendly and the prices are more than fair. A simple, quiet spot for a tasty breakfast.

If it's breakfast or dinner it's a great place. Never empty coffee cups, great breakfast choices, and the prime rib and fish and chips are the best.

Local relaxed atmosphere...don't go here if you are dressed up. Go here if you want good music, good food, and nice selection of drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. Think popcorn machine, pool tables, dancing. Great owners!

I am new to the area and Bowen's is a family owned bar/restaurant in the middle of nowhere. The ingredients were fresh, the drinks were cold, and the food was delicious! Prime Rib on the weekends! Live music on Friday, Saturday, this place is great!

Went here for lunch with two friends. This is a typical pub which is why I put not sure on the family friendly question. Some do not like their children around people drinking and such. There is a horseshoe bar, tables, jukebox, booths, very rustic...More

Classic pub just outside of belfast. Worth the little extra miles. Never had lunch but breakfast is the best in the area. Friendly staff and endless coffee. Never had to ask for a second cup...ever. Must place for a Hardy breakfast
