There for a family meal and it was excellent. Could not fault anything really, efficiency, quality tasty food, lovely staff. We wanted to prolong our get together and it was no problem at all even though they were very busy and would have required our table. We were made to feel very welcome indeed. Best place I've been in a... More

We recently dined at Eight South on a Saturday night as there was entertainment after the meal. There were 4 of us and 2 had the chowder for starter whilst a third had ribs. The chowder was very disappointing with far too many vegetables but relatively little fish or seafood. The ribs were of but came out like a stew.... More

As a regular visitor to Eight South over the past 4 years I can only say I am very disappointed with the food served this evening. Service was good and seated within 10 minutes despite having no reservation. However, the food was really poor. The turkey dinners were served with a side of vegetables. Only lukewarm at best. Felt like... More

Very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your Christmas Fayre on Friday evening, I can assure you that our poultry and hams are purchased from Crosskey Meats in Banbridge. Crosskey have the reputation of being one of the top butchers in the business of top quality fresh products certainly not processed. If your meals were not up to expectations... More

Visited on Friday night as a party of three. Starters of wings and squid, loved by all. Between us we had 2 12oz fillet steaks and chicken curry. Steaks apparently were amazing and I can say my curry was very tasty. Cocktails and gins were well received. Waiting staff were very friendly and professional. Thank you for a lovely night... More

Went to 8South for a family meal, 10 of us from 9 months to 95 Years. The staff were great and brought some small portions of vegetables for the two very young children and did not charge for them. One reason we came was my brother in law (from Australia) very fond memories of the spare ribs. He did not... More

Popped in for a supposed quick lunch with parents but left very late and very disappointed. We had to wait over 3/4 HR from starter to main course. I did not have a starter so by the time my lunch arrived I was really hungry and angry. The vegetables with one of the meals was rubbery and inedible. The waitress... More
