When we stopped by, they were offering outdoor dining only.
The staff were very welcoming, super friendly.
The food was nice, service was good, and the food arrived exceptionally quickly.
The burgers were the winner, nice and big, and very tasty .

Great options for those eating outside. Food was ok. Service ok.
The tables were very sticky. We changed tables once and had the same problem. To pick things up from the table was a funny thing. Not sure if it's due to too much alcohol or gel when cleaning or something that happened to the varnish on the table.
Would go back in the future.

It was a blustery and showery day and driving through Carndonagh we decided to stop for lunch.

A lovely welcome to the establishment and an explanation that they don't currently have indoor dining but a covered outside area is available.

So happy we stayed! Two very tasty club sandwiches and a delicious chicken, brie and cranberry wrap with Teas and Coffees were just the thing we needed.

Excellent service, tasty food - highly recommend if you are touring Inishowen

Stayed for 2 nights in July and had a great time. The rooms were great, spotless and very comfortable. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. Enjoyed a gorgeous breakfast outside, cooked to perfection, including poached eggs, which I always take on the side as they often arrive on soggy toast (including the top hotels in Dublin!) But not here! All the staff were so amazing and friendly. We watched the Euro 2020 final in the bar, and my son asked if there was any food left (service had stopped) No problem at all 2 big bowls of chips on the house. Highly recommend it for a base for a great location. The beaches are amazing, the Famine Village and Wild Ireland. Cant wait to return!

We stayed in the butterbean for 3 nights. I would class myself as Covid anxious and the team were really helpful. I'd my breakfast outside in the mornings and the rooms have their own side door so we never met anyone coming in or out. The room was really spacious and very comfy.

The food was excellent as ever. We'd dinner there twice. I'm vegetarian so had a chickpea korma (lovely and creamy) and enchilada (cheesy goodness). Also had some of the mocktails which were delish. Breakfast was also top class. I'd omelettes, poached eggs and for any potential guests - order the fried potato cubes at breakfast, lunch, dinner, whenever - they're gorgeous!
