“Awsome Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

This lovely scenic place with fantastic views. We had a great meal, of the 5 of us that ate there was nothing but praise for the food. The staff were excellent polite and funny. A very enjoyable evening and vreat atmosphere. No trip to Strangford lock would be complete without a visit.

“Disappointing experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Hadn't been ion years but returned with a friend from Galway expecting great things. Location and new dining areas are excellent, menu pretty good with excellent fish options. Starters v good mains decent if potions a little small and deserts v tasty. So why only an average rating... the service staff were inattentive and as the meal progressed clearly run off their feet and inexperienced. Food was slow to arrive and drinks almost impossible to get without effort. Saw several people not happy with the service or lack there off and know the manager was apologizing left right and center to customers re problems in the kitchen. Would love to go back, but not sure if it would be worth a similar experience.

“Lovely spot for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Views are great! Smoked fish platter was lovely, as was the steak and Guiness pie. Not sure it would be quite as appealing on a wet and windy day!

“Dinner with Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Good location with great views over Strangford Lough. This place has changed over the years, with different cooks, staff and clients. There seems to be further development in progress, which means it is keeping up with the differing fashions and trends in eating out.

Atmosphere was buzzing, staff very attentive, and food prices were very reasonable.
The seafood was freshly cooked, portions were generous, and everyone was well satisfied with what was presented. Overall a very pleasant "eating out" experience. Will book again!!!
