I recently dined here with my friends for the movie night which includes 3 courses and breakfast at tiffanys in a local cinema for £20. I had the lamb which was beautiful followed by a chocolate dessert. A dining experience can't wait to return!

I booked this restaurant on my third attempt at calling (first two calls unanswered) for a meal for 2 after hearing great things about it from work colleagues. It's a very enjoyable drive from Belfast, being in a lovely and very green setting. The first thing we saw was the Kitchen Garden, which put me in mind of Raymond Blanc's...

Fantastic food ,Good ambience. Friendly staff. If you are in Belfast pay the £15 taxi fare and visit, far, far, better than anything you'll find in Belfast and overall you will save money. Well worth it

Have not been for years. I live overseas but grew up in this region. In fact went to this school! We had the tasting menu and decided to go with matched wines which is unusual for me. All the food was very well cooked and interesting. The wines were well matched and the service was great. It has a great...

We had a lovely break here for a night. We loved the food and found the staff really friendly and accommodating. We had the tasting menu which had fewer course than you would expect, but was well balanced and satisfying. My only suggestion would be about the accommodation. The rooms are lovely - nice beds, warm, lots of hot water,...

Four of us went to the Restaurant for lunch, I had not been for very many years, and we all had a great afternoon. We started off with drinks in the bar area and discussed with the staff our choices for our lunch. We each enjoyed what we had and were particularly impressed with the presentation. This mad the lunch...
