The Diamond has a very professional landlord who knows how to keep all his customers happy. A very well run pub and a pleasure to spend a leisurely couple of hours in.

We dropped in early one evening and had a meal at the bar. Enjoyed a convivial atmosphere and decent pub food. Our server, Sandra, was the best server we had during our three nights in Ballycastle—she was efficient, fast, and friendly!

We stayed in a holiday let up the road from this restaurant, it was recommended to us by the owners and we are so glad we came as it was beautiful!! they have a lovely lounge out the back and the specials were divine. Massive portions and reasonably priced. Went back twice on that trip!

I've also ordered a Brownie, and it was good, but nothing special, so I suggest you to try something else. It happened that the waitress went wrong and our bill was 20 pounds higher,... More
