Tender, juicy steaks served with a lovely lakeside view. Friendly, attentive staff. Generous plates of food at a reasonable price. No reservation was required and we didn't have any wait. A couple of minutes from Stranraer or Cairnryan.

We visit here quite often, as the menus change fairly often. There is usually a specials menu besides the normal one.

Called in on spec and lucky to get a table. Food was excellent. Perfectly cooked and beautiful presentation. Staff were so nice. Water on the table without having to ask, and some complimentary sides were most welcome. Lovely restaurant. Would recommend.

This is a really good place to eat and the staff are polite and friendly. We ate here twice on a three day visit to Stranraer and would certainly go back again. The food was delicious and hot and the restaurant was modern and clean.

Nestled in the West Coast town of Stranraer overlooking the picturesque Loch Ryan where you can watch the ferries going to and from Northern Ireland and Cairnryan Port. Henrys Bay House Restaurant boasts the finest sun terrace for alfresco dining and views to be inspired by. The menu features locally sourced fish and meat prepared and cooked freshly to order by local chef/restauranteur John Henry. The comfortable and stylish restaurant and bar are managed by his wife Jane and her team of attentive, welcoming staff.
