Tired and hungry from a day of sightseeing we decided to eat out locally. With a choice of two pubs in Ballintoy we made the worst decision of our entire trip.
I can honestly say that our party of three had the worst meal we had ever experienced – anywhere! We waited ages for our meals and when they arrived they were inedible. My vegetables were from a packet and had been boiled and served up to me dry and tasteless. My poor mother had the roast of the day which had obviously been microwaved as the meat on top was so dark and tough she couldn’t cut through it and the meat underneath was a totally different colour. The mash was disgusting – an abomination for an Irish pub to get wrong. This place really should stick to serving packet chips.
I could go on but by now you are hopefully convinced about giving this place a wide berth and saving yourself a truly bad meal…
Do yourself a favour and pop over the road to the Fullerton Arms Hotel across the road serves 5-star meals with great service (which we discovered the next night).
