This is a regular haunt for my family. I’m not one for beating around the bush, food is great, the welcome is warm, beers cold and it wouldn’t break the bank. Fantastic setting as well.

Been for lunch about half a dozen times. The fish and chips for a tenner is just fantastic. Great mushy peas and the batter on the fish is awesome.

Went with 3 friends on a mid week evening. Restaurant was quiet, staff were friendly but seated us away in a corner away from others which meant there wasn’t much of an atmosphere! Orders were taken and food arrived quickly! Food was tasty but basic,...More

Right at the Ferry from Magilligan Point to Co. Donegall (Greencastle). Marvellous food, (try their Lemon Sole). But if you are intending to go for Sunday Lunch, be there for opening time as it gets really crowded. Recommended to anyone on the North Coast, it...More
