We called in on a very busy Easter Monday and were seated within 5 mins. Nice local pub and restaurant, casual and easy. The food was excellent, fantastic venison burger with salty goats cheese and sweet sticky caramelised onions...yum. Service was on point and pleasant, and finally the price was tremendous value for money.

Having checked it was wheelchair accessible, we booked for later on that day. When we arrived it was very busy... More

We chose from a good choice of dishes. We were surprised at how quickly our meals arrived & the portions which were ample... More

My husband and myself dropped into The Maghera Inn around 5.00pm after spending Easter Monday in Newcastle. The restaurant and bar were buzzing, extremely busy, we hadn't booked a table, but a very efficient lady showed us to a table, presented us with menus and told us there would be a 15 minute wait until someone could take our order....

Arrived on a friday with my wife for a drink and decided to have tea. Maghera Inn has never disappoints in our experience. Food and service great and Conor is a great barman. You are always made to feel welcome here by Hugh and Matthew.

We visited the Maghera Inn on Saturday night for an early dinner with family of ours who frequent it. A bustling atmosphere in a deceivingly large pub/restaurant welcomed us. Staff were lovely and eager to keep your drinks topped up! Food was delicious - good, hearty, tasty food was had. I had the special - monkfish and chorizo linguine with... More
