“Good choice”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We have ate at the Primrose several times before, we went tonight for something to eat - pleasantly surprised! The menu has changed slightly, the food was up to the usual high standard, the staff are very attentive, nothing is too much for them.

“Pleasant Primrose”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

When in the area it's well worth stopping for a lunch or evening meal, the staff are efficient and nothing's to much trouble, the food is above average and not to expensive at all.Good menu for kids and they will accommodate requests for some of the main dishes to be made smaller for children.

“Good food, extremely bad service”
Reviewed 6 March 2013 via mobile

Waitress/owner whatever she is has a serious attitude problem. We had not even sat down and we were rushed for our drinks order. After about 3 mins of being given the menu we where asked if we where ready to order, we politely asked for a few more minutes and then received huffs, puffs and dirty looks. Food arrived and was ok, no problems there but we where not asked during the meal if everything was ok.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Primrose food is outstanding- great portions, not greasy and overall very pleasing to the pallette.

Only snag would be the price- it's a little too high for a bar in the middle of Ballynahinch. I have had cheaper meals in restaurants in Belfast that have been at the same or better quality.
