That’s about as busy as Monday should get. Smoked apple cheese, caramelised onions on a thick beef patty with pulled pork. I never rant about burgers, but this one deserves a standing ovation. ‘The Big Mo’, get involved!

One of my favourite restaurants. The food is always of the highest standard and they always try new things with their menu. Save room for dessert as their baked goods are so scrumptious.

Great place to eat in Rostrevor. Had dinner here on a Sunday. Great food with excellent friendly service. The portion sizes are very good, great value for money. Chicken Caesar Salad was delicious. Had the burger for mains followed by Malteser cheesecake.

I have seen many young children at the Old School House. they have high chairs and from I have seen they have catered very well for the children. I've seen some parents bring their tablet for the kids to watch something on.
