“Awful”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

I went here today for lunch and it was awful, the older blonde haired waitress wasn't plesent and barely uttered a word to us, she took around 10 mins to come near us when we walked in. I had scampi and it was VERY greasy and I could even taste the oil. The champ tasted like it was re-heated. I felt sick afterwards and will never be back.

“CA very fine meal”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

My wife and I visited on Fathers Day half expecting it to be full but the staff had arranged times and tables very well. I chose curried parsnip soup and for main course the beef both of which were excellent. The wife started with a prawn and pepper fishcake and followed with the beef. She actually saved a slice of beef to take home and have on a sandwich later. We both agreed it was a super meal and with two courses and drinks came to just £30.00 which for Fathers Day or indeed any day was exceptional value. We fully intend to return.

“Incredibly poor service”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

My husband and I went to the Groomsport Inn today (Easter Monday). The food was delicious and very good value for money, however the service was amongst the worst we have ever experienced. The waitresses barely uttered a word to us, and it was only when we were leaving and overheard them speaking to someone else, that we realised there was a specials board we had never been shown. We were never asked if our food was OK after it had arrived, and my husband had to go looking for sauce that he wanted on his own. We live locally, and because the food was so good, we will probably give it another try. I can only hope that the service has improved by then.
