“Pleasant and relaxing evening at Ballyholme.”
Reviewed 2 December 2012 via mobile

Visited this restaurant last Friday. It has now changed hands from the Fat Cat. The opening hours are still varied and ambiguous.

The menu is varied and the food was very good, with the Chef very willing to cook the food exactly the way you like it, which is most suitable for people with food allergies. Indeed the food is freshly cooked.

As it is a bring your own restaurant, this provides a saving in the wine for the meal. There is a handy Off Licence just across the road.

I would recommend this restaurant and look forward to going again.

“Excellent food and staff”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

Decided to call in one day when out doing christmas shopping with my wife and seven year old son. The decor is very nice and bright and the staff are very helpful.
The best part was the breakfast as it is all cooked fresh to order you can really taste the food instead of being in a hot plate as some places do for a few weeks. Not only are the breakfasts cooked fresh but it very filling, it was good to get nice thick bacon and not wafer thin.
I tihnk I will definatley call again to try either the lunch or dinner menu.

Well worth it.
