Cappuccino or latte , cannot beat this coffee stop. Consistently good, scones lots of choice. If can time it right, before lunch rush, otherwise may be a queue, but worth the wait. Farm shop, butchery, bakery even sweetie shop( weighted out of old fashioned jars love the clove rock) plant stall on way out.excellent value.

Great shop for country fresh produce combined with an excellent restaurant. Very good stop for breakfast although can be extremely busy with some delays at peak times. Well worth the wait. Excellent butchery and vegetable shopping with lots of local produce on offer. Prepared food section in shop very good for sourcing items for home use.

The restaurant at McKees has a lovely ambience with friendly staff and beautiful freshly cooked food. Good portions. Anything from scones & coffee to full breakfasts & lunches catering for all dietary requirements. Very clean and welcoming. Good value for money. The farm shop sells fresh local produce too.

A fine example of good old fashion service and quality that will always win over from the multiples . You can't get this shopping experience in your super stores !

Excellent service from very friendly helpful staff. Quality food cooked exactly the way you want it. The views towards Scrabo and Strangford lough are breath taking on a clear day. The worst thing for me is the car parking surface even on a dry day the car mats are covered with dusty foot prints.

I've been to this restaurant twice and both times it has been sensational. The choice of food is fantastic and the portions are massive. You certainly won't leave hungry, if anything you might complain that you got too much (is that even a complaint!?)
