We stopped here for a quick drink after the giants causeway. The pub itself is charming and seats outside also. The Pinot I had was lovely and a massive glass! We didn't get food but from what I saw it looked amazing and fresh!

This started as a school in the 1800's and is now a restaurant. It is right before the visitor center for the Giant's Causeway. My wife had the seafood chowder and I had the Irish stew. Both were delicious

Easy to access, easy to park good pub fare and fantastic view of the coast. Access website for their hours; they closed early. Ordering is self serve but they will bring it to you. Complete bar. Indoor and outdoor tables. Friendly service.

We hiked almost two hours to reach the Giant's Causeway. This was a perfect ending to refresh and reward yourself. Nice selection of tap beers plus a full bar and food if you need it. Nice place.

We had lunch at the Nook. We had fish and chips. The food was good and the price was reasonable. We were told to go there because it was more reasonable to eat there rather than at the centre
