We had the most wonderful meal at the Otter Lodge. The food is simply delicious and very appealing. The staff were very friendly and helpful and is a must do when in Cookstown.

Have dined here frequently over a number of years and have always been impressed by the quality and consistently high standard of food, for a reasonable price. I had the vegetarian curry which had good flavour and plenty of varied vegetables at a compeditive price. Well done, another favourite dish.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cookstown. I have always enjoyed the meals in it. I just wish the would leave the garlic cubes a wee while longer to cook and it would be absolutely perfect for all the family.

That being said most everything else is very good and well presented and... More

Had a family meal here last night. Varied menu and the food was tasty. Informal dining style. As it was a Sunday evening they were a little low in desserts, but there was still a good choice!

So disappointed to travel from Carrickfergus hoping to get lunch here and it was closed on a Saturday afternoon. Such a waste as the views on a beautiful Saturday like yesterday would have been unreal.

My partner and I went for something to eat Saturday evening at 6pm. Our main course arrived, chilie wedges were ordered but plain wedges came. Chip's were ordered and yes you guessed it, they didn't come either. My pepper sauce didn't come either until I had to ask for it, 7 minutes into the meal, by which time my food... More

Description
On the main route from Armagh to the Causeway Coast you can find one of Tyrone's most successful eating houses. Over the last 29 years Otter Lodge has established a reputation for quality and great value for money. Situated on a stunning riverbank location at the south end of Cookstown, Heather and Harold Moffett's award winning bistro is known throughout Northern Ireland for consistently good food and easy drinking wines at very reasonable prices. Orders are placed at the bar but Food is served to the table and this arrangement adds an informal relaxed atmosphere where customers are in control. Otter Lodge is open for light lunches and evening meals and has a lively buzz especially at weekends. Single tables can be reserved for groups of six to 14 in the Wine Bar with larger groups being accommodated upstairs. A selection of great value 'Lunch specials from £6.95' are on offer and due to increased demand, Heather and Harold have recently introduced 'All Day Sunday Opening', and an excellent value 'Evening Deal Menu'.
