What has happened limavady? Used to have great bars with loads ppl and plenty of Craic now it's like a ghost town. If it wasn't for Frank's I doubt limavady wud survive. 3 of us had a good laugh, great selection of good beer and unlike some bars all pints were fresh and cool. Better choice of familiar beers you... More

We visited as part of a tour of the GoT doors. The owner was wonderfully welcoming, sat down and chatted with us. Great, roaring fire, homely little chairs and tables. We were really sorry to leave and promised we would come back for a night's craic.

Always my first stop for a pint, great staff and owners, charming spot and great for birthdays. Hosts the Jazz n Blues festival every year and has a huge marquee for weddings and larger parties although the outdoor bar out the back can hold 100 I would think. Had my birthday here and it's a fab spot. Highly recommend for... More

We called in primarily to see the Game of Thrones door and thought we might as well have a pint at the same time. The welcome we were given was quite simply the best we've had in any bar during our 2 week stay in Northern Ireland. The bar is full of history, and the host was quite happy to... More

I waited patiently outside until 11:30am on the button before approaching the man who'd just opened the front door. It turned out to be Damien Owens, proprietor and son of the legendary Frank Owens. He welcomed me in and, upon hearing I was there to see the famous Game of Thrones door, rushed to offer me a drink. I chose... More

Popped by on recommendation from taxi driver after dinner next door and was immediately welcomed. Bar was heaving but we were still served instantly. Barman Damien got talking to us, found out it was our honeymoon and shared news with other customers who were all very kind and buying us drinks! Never had such a friendly atmosphere in a bar,...

Lovely service with a smile and they had the best relaxed atmosphere. Also we went for the game of thrones door and we weren't disappointed.

To quote Darren Clarke as he once said to me, 'it's the best wee bar in Ireland'. And he's right. Brilliantly family run pub. I've frequented this place manys a time and you can always be sure of a warm welcome and an excellently poured Guinness. Power to your elbow!

No frills, nothing fancy but a warm welcome (literally if you happen to get a seat by one of the fireplaces) and a very costly spot to while away a winter afternoon over a few drinks. The bar staff are always friendly and the locals always make us feel welcome. Always love coming here.

Called in here with my nephew Mikey who wanted to see another Game of Thrones door. Never been in here before but after two drinks it felt like our local pub. The bar was busy but the bar man got our drinks straight away and talked to Mikey about all sorts of daft things and really made us welcome. We... More
