A group of us dropped in without a reservation and were welcomed. The food is not fine dining but they serve appetising wholesome food.

I had a burger as my main and it... More

Me, my mum, auntie and aunties cousin all went over to Belfast for a wee day out. We asked a woman somewhere we could have lunch and a drink that wasn't a pub and she recommended here.

Had a main and glass of vino, albeit small for £6. Chicken goujons and chicken burgers went down nicely and were... More

When we arrived at the Ibis Hotel across the street, my mom and I figured we'd better eat here seeing as it's right across the street. The decorations are lovely and the space is quaint. A delicious meal and I'm sure the bar was great too but we didn't go down there. Would recommend!
