As. A long time diner at The Eagle and have enjoyed many a good meal there Chris Bell has taken over the running of the restaurant and has taken the quality of dining to a new level.

Having read great reviews I thought I'd bring my family there for a family celebration meal. Unfortunately the experience was rather disappointing. Although it wasn't busy the service was not very attentive- had to ask twice for water & tried to grab attention of staff for drinks who were busy chatting @ bar. The starter vegetable soup was a thick... More

We went to the Eagle the other day and got the 4-8-4 deal, everything we ordered was amazing and the quality of the food was superb! We will be back again and again.

My sister and I took her grandchildren here for a meal as part of a treat which included a visit to the cinema beforehand. My sister and I had fish dishes and the children steak and chicken pasta respectively. The service was good and the food was of a reasonable quality. The children certainly enjoyed their food.

Came here for a meal last night with some friends. Very friendly staff. Food was excellent but quite expensive. Everyone enjoyed their meal but no atmosphere in the place. Maybe better at the weekend's. Found the drinks expensive. A small glass of Proseco was nearly £7.

Had a delicious dinner on Tuesday night. Confit duck with red cabbage to start, followed by pan fried cod with fishcake bombs and homemade tartare sauce. No complaints from me! It was sooo good, and if you are looking for a proper dining experience then it's head and shoulders above anywhere else in Ballymena! Glad to see restaurant was busy... More

We hadn't eaten here in a while and see it's under new ownership, again. We visited on a Saturday evening, it was busy but not full. I had one of the specials, belly pork with root vegetables. The belly pork was excellent and possibly the best I've had in a very long time, the root vegetables however consisted of a... More
