The food here is just vile. The potatoes looked like they were a week old and they use the same breaded chicken fillets for several dishes. I gave the chef the benefit of doubt and went back a second time as we all have off days. I really wish I hadn't as the food was still nasty. The only positive I could find in this place was the bar and waiting staff. They were all lovely friendly people who couldn't do enough for you. To be honest they are wasted in this sinking ship.

Good hearted food with pleasant service.

If your out and about in Downpatrick & looking for a nice place to eat that's easy on the pocket this is a great option, they do one course for £7 or two course for £11. If you haven't been do try

Brendans Bar in Downpatrick does Classic Fayre at such affordable prices. The menu is varied to suit all tastes and all meals during week days are around £7.00 . Their courses cannot be beaten on price nor quality with varied specials every day. They also do cinema deals as well as byo wine after 5.00pm Mondays through 2 Saturday . Saturday afternoons also feature great music and crack from around 3.00pm. The staff bar and floor are fantastic. Sundays are advisable to be booked in advance as they are very busy but no wonder as 3 delicious courses are £10.00. Brendans is sure to be a hit so if U can get a table U shall not be disappointed. Great food and Great atmosphere! They deserve every success. I can hardly wait to go back.

Called into Brendans last Sunday. Its easy to miss this bar because its set back from the road but its worth looking out for. We had the soup, turkey and ham with mash, vegetables and roast potatoes followed by chocolate fuudge cake. All the food was excellent, hot, good portions and the service friendly. For two us with a glass of coke each the bill was around £23, now that's hard to beat!
