Ate here last night. Excellent service but let down badly by standard of food. Overdone steaks , bland Thai prawn starter , everything covered in paprika, white chips, hard apple in crumble.
What a pity.

We had a great meal here. The restaurant was very busy so the atmosphere was great. The food was very good and the service was attentive.

We had a recommendation to try the steak in the Downshire Arms, Banbridge. I will be having stern words with the person who gave us this recommendation. The staff were very pressing in asking us to order a drink, most insistent, without giving us time to consider what we wanted to order. The wine list was terrible, zero reputable wines available. We ordered our steaks cooked medium and they were well done, side orders bland in the extreme, sauces mediocre only. To be charged £23.50 each plus side orders was daylight robbery. We literally could not exit the place quickly enough, only to find the front entrance PADLOCKED! All in all, a total and utter let down and waste of money, don't set foot in the place!

An open fire greets you as you walk through the door and the welcome at reception is equally as warm.
Room was very big and cosy with all amenities, water, coffee and biscuits, ironing board etc.
Bar had another open fire and the food there was varied, freshly cooked with home cooked fries..very good.
Free WiFi throughout the hotel.
