We were just passing by on holiday and stopped for a friday night dinner. Good timing for us as it is their steak night. We had a wonderful meal, the service was very friendly. Exceptional peppercorn sauce but make sure you leave room for dessert. Sticky Toffee pudding was wonderful. Would definitely go back if ever in the area.

I visit this place whenever I go back on holidays to meet my family in Belleek and Enniskillen. Great pub food, just like home cooked meals with lovely deserts all freshly made. Lovely welcoming staff too. My kids love this place especially the burgers. Great value for money too.

We stopped for lunch after visiting Belleek. My wife had the burger with cheese, which she said was plain (it lacked any lettuce, tomato, etc.), but the meat was tasty. I also had the burger with cheese and agree that it was plain, but I enjoyed it. It came with salad that was fresh and nicely varied. The chips were... More
