My wife and I were visiting Northern Ireland for a few days and took a drive through Banbridge and visited the Legananny Dolmen before heading to Strangford to cross over and drive back up to Belfast along the peninsula. We landed up at the Cuan quite by chance when we were unable to locate the restaurant our innkeeper had recommended. It was the 12 July holiday weekend and things were quite busy. The staff was very friendly and particularly helpful when it came to sorting out menu items with which we were unfamiliar. We speak American English and sometimes find ourselves at a loss over fairly simple terms that we just don't encounter at home. They answered our questions without making me feel like an idiot for asking. My wife had the Crossgar Beef Fillet & Chicken and I had a fish & chips. Both were quite good. The cost was slightly more than your average pub fare, but was still reasonable and worth it in my opinion.
The owner, Peter, came round and spoke to us for several minutes. He was very personable and made us feel welcome, as he seemed genuine in his interest. We discussed our travel plans and he asked us to have a look at the Old Glory that flew over the Capitol in Washington D.C. that he acquired from an American Representative. The dining room was comfortable, clean, and decorated with pictures related to local history.
I'd recommend the Cuan to anyone passing through Strangford!
