Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped off for lunch at The Fullerton on a dsy trip to The Giant's Causeway and the food was divine. Impeccable service in a quite wonderful pub. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I found myself in The Fullerton Arms as a stopping point on a Causeway Coast tour. Even with two full coaches of people hurtling in for lunch, the staff were friendly, organised, and really helpful. Another member of my coach trip had additional needs, and...the staff went out of their way to accommodate this person, even going as far as bending their rules a little, which was incredibly kind. A second person on our trip was having a birthday, and was brought a slice of (very delicious looking) cake. I then overheard the manager telling our coach driver 'not to worry about it' when he went to pay. It may have only been a slice of cake, but that says a lot about the people working in this lovely little pub. Several choices on draft and a wall of whisky to choose from, as well as good food and a cosy atmosphere. (The Game of Thrones door is cool too!)More

This pub was quite a nice surprise. Their service was fast and people were quite attentive. The size of meals was quite good so we stayed full for quite a while. Their entrance door is one of the carved with themes of Game of Thrones....You can get a passport and a stamp of this door and there are a total of 10 doors that you can visit around Northern Ireland.More

A big thanks to Louise and all her staff namely Vanessa and Anandhu who all made my stay at the Fullerton arms a really nice one. Everything was just right with regards to the check in,the rooms and their facilities and the location was great...for the bridge. In particular i really need to mention the food which was the highlight of my stay. the "full" breakfast was definitely filling and enoughto set you up for a couple of days and the dinners were tasty and plenty of it-try the mussels,they were delicious. And of course il be back!More

We stopped off here for lunch on an organised coach trip. The food was really good with massive portions. The waitress didn't appear to be massively impressed at being at work though! The decorative door from Game of Thrones is beautiful.

It was nice enough, but for price of some of the dishes, and I’m comparing to other similar establishments in Northern Ireland, you expect some side salad with the burger, for a bit of balance and improved presentation. At least my mum’s haddock had the...standard mushy peas, but again, more colour on the side would have helped. My son’s kids’ meal could have come with a choice of peas or beans, rather than just some chips and 2 sausages. A few less stodgy chips, which I couldn’t finished, and a bit more green would be nice to accompany the main courses. Regarding the price of soft drinks, £2.55 for a half pint of Diet Pepsi was rather steep. I’d expect that for a pint of Pepsi. We just ordered it not knowing the price or quantity. I live in London and was shocked by this price. Again, a slice of lemon in a drink wouldn’t go amiss.More

Our first time here, found out it was dog freindly so thought we would try it out. What a great place to eat. The food was fantastic!! We both had roast beef, with sticky toffee pudding with ice cream to share, it was one of...the best deserts I have had ;-) We were stuffed by the time we finished, it was lovely!! The staff were very freindly, and always kept on asking about our dog. Really nice to go to a pub that cares about you and your pets - Just brilliant - Thank You *****More

This was our 1st stay and we had a fabulous experience. We choose here as it's dog friendly for both accommodation and eating ( properly dog friendly in the heat, not sitting freezing outside like some places who say they are) We stayed in Room...11 ,an annex at the back. It was perfect with a very comfortable double, 2 bunks a good sized bathroom and plenty of space for dog bed etc. However don't be put off if you're not fond of four legs as the accommodation has 2 specific rooms for them in a separate annex so no disturbances to other residences or stray hairs. Out the back there is plenty of garden area for a run and doggy toilet needs. It's not completely enclosed but a big carpark before the road so we could let ours off for a run and supervised her. The food was excellent, I recommend the Chowder which was delicious, however all the food we saw going out looked lovely and portions were very generous. Breakfast was also excellent and offered fruit, cereal and a full cooked breakfast. Staff throughout were genuinely friendly, made fuss of the dog and very helpful. Definitely recommend to both doggy and non doggy people. The setting is amazing with so many beautiful walks and points of interest on your doorstep.More

We called here with on Mccombs coach trip. We didn't order meals which were apparently good but 2 coach parties were there at roughly the same time and they were crammed in. We only bought drinks and received poor service as they weren't really interested...as they were busy. They know these coach parties are coming so maybe more staff at a lunch would be a good idea, as I think there were more coach parties later.More

We came as part of a McCombs Coach tour. We ordered on the bus. You pay for what you had by table number. It’s all very organized. Each bus load of folks are squeezed into a room. Order anything but the steak and Guinness pie....It was the 1st thing to be brought out (because it was fixed at the crack of dawn?). Steak and gravy was room temperature and the puff pastry was hard as a brick. £14.50More
