We had yet another fantastic meal here tonight. Due to my wife having to eat gluten free we were delighted with the choices available. The slow cooked braising steak was simply to die for (I had it as well). The staff were extremely knowledgeable about coeliac disease and could not have been more helpful. This made the overall experience of... More

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times for family occasions such as birthdays etc and we have always found the service great. On the down side their menu is fairly limited and they will not vary it. For example one of our party asked for a small portion of chips and a small portion of rice but... More

The Food was good,reasonably priced and a varied menu was on offer. Staff were friendly and helpful but the dining room in the restaurant is a little bit gloomy, perhaps redecorating would help. I will definitely be back.

That Saturday afternoon I was responsible for bringing 22 Belgian pensioners to this place. It was a pre ordered lunch which was an acceptable albeit small Salmon salad. The place itself though was very noisy with children and the floor was annoyingly greasy.

My daughter 'dragged' me into this place kicking, side street, smell of chip pans, fag ends sticking out of a filthy outdoor ashtray at the main entrance, yuk. We were seated and ordered coffee, watched as orders were being brought to tables near us, I was ready for exiting, burgers and chips, (bistro?) I ordered the same as my daughter... More

This little gem of Banbridge NEVER fails. We are here often and yet to have a bad experience. We always bring the kids and a big thing for me is that they are accepted and catered for excellently. If your looking for a great meal and great service you have to go!!! 10-10 great.
