Friendly service and chicken breast cooked to perfection with lots of peas and bacon! My friend had a beef and ale pie which was delicious!

“Beautiful food.... Great venue for a birthday dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I have previously reviewed the Ulster and commented on their being a lack of options for vegetarians. I phoned and booked a birthday dinner for a Saturday night and was reassured there were more options on the menu. I'm not sure if the Ulster is under new management but I have to praise the new menu and the Chef. I had a gluten free, vegetarian wild mushroom risotto and it was perfect, as were the other meals ordered surf and turf and Barramundi...... everyone enjoyed their meals. Also you can take a birthday cake, which the staff will bring out and the cakeage is only $1 per person. Thank you for a lovely night.... Especially the good service by attentive staff. My sister enjoyed her birthday dinner....

“Returned”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Are here again while on business. Nothing has changed in 5 months. Still good quality meals, friendly service and a good variety of beer

The barman, Johno, is friendly and polite and it is a pleasure to have been served by him again

“"Better than expected" ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

The staff were really nice, and the food was great. The only thing is that it was a cold night and there is no heating (or if there is they did not put it on), so as we had our cold beer (which are local and amazing) waiting for our entree, we were freezing. For mains my wife had the salmon and I had the Surf and Turf, which was really good. It does however need to be cleaned a little better, as the windows were dirty and bugs in the light fittings.

“Group function”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We attended a group function on 17th May. Smorgasbord main meal and choice of 2 desserts. Lovely meal and good service by staff. The sliced beef was beautiful, cooked to perfection and "melt in your mouth"
