Service very rushed, and duck very overcooked. We weren't asked how we would like our meat cooked. No cheeseboard option available for dessert.

A very convenient place to take a break after the glenshane pass. A busy popular place. We had coffees but the bistro was full with families enjoying thge carvery lunches. Clearly very popular for the local people, always a good sign.
