My wife and I used to live in Ballycastle so we know the bar, or the way it used to be at least. We called in for a drink one evening and were so disappointed. One barman was just rude and place is full of TVs. Food was being served and the whole place smelled like a chippie. There are... More

The chips were fantastic and the rest of the meal was ok. Maybe we were there on a bad day in September but the staff was very surly. I had to get up and fetch my own cutlery and a glass of wine from the bar because our cranky server couldn’t be bothered.
