I had the Red Gurnard and asparagus.... it was delicious!! And something I never probably would have ordered... the... More

We stopped off at the Elk on our way to a meeting in Belfast. As I have dietary requirements it difficult to find a restaurant that can meet my requirements. To my surprise nothing was a problem. The young Waitress made us very welcome took our drinks order. We told her we had a meeting in Belfast. So she took... More

Called in for a quick lunch on route to Belfast. Had no booking but we thought we'd risk calling in in the off chance. When we arrived at the front desk a few members of staff were at the bar talking to each other. We stood and waited until one of them shouted over; "just sit anywhere" and continued their... More

We had a meal in The Elk tonight. We were very impressed. I have a dietary intolerance and one of the "specials" was adapted to suit my requirements. Recommendations made were 100%. Meal was superb and service was second to none. We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

Last Thursday my girlfriend and I called in for a meal for our anniversary, it was our first time in the Elk but they definitely impressed. The atmosphere was inviting and the staff quickly got us seated and took our drink order which was a lovely pinot grigio that was recommended by our server. My girlfriend got the Slaney Valley...

As I was commuting from Derry to Belfast on a business trip, I decided to take a stop into The Elk as I was passing through Toome and heard positive reviews about it. I felt welcomed by staff and was seated quickly. As I looked at the menu, the week's special, the Silverhill Duck Breast stood out to me. I... More

Stopped by on the way home. They serve til 8:45 Pleasant inside, not busy for a Tuesday evening. Waitress nice and friendly. Good variety menu, opted for the tower chicken - lovely. Meat feast burger was nice and spicy. Mix up over the fries but no hassle really. Starters were fine also. Good parking and outside smoking area. Handy location... More

The elk is undoubtedly the nicest place to eat in the area-the weekend specials are always amazing...Maureen the manager and all her staff are so friendly and helpful. The duck main or blackened chicken are both also very good meals; try the elk-I'm sure like myself after one try you'll want to keep going back.
