We went to this place for a drink and were very happy with the atmosphere. It's big and nicely decorated. It's sad we had no time to try the food because I know it is very good.

Incredibly rude staff... You can understand if they were dealing with drunks all night but some are just downright ignorant and too big for their boots. Saturday nights are for older crowds and there's never any bother, good music and dj always very friendly. However...More

Great bar within walking distance of just about anywhere in Portstewart. Food has always been excellent, good choice and value for money. Service fast from friendly staff. The atmosphere is always relaxed and there is buzz around the place. What more could you ask for!
