We have been many times for afternoon tea and really enjoyed ourselves . It’s a bit expensive but you pay for the experience. However I was a little disappointed with the food this visit , the coronation chicken and a cheese sandwich weren’t nice at all, the rest of the savoury was delicious. The sweet was good if you like really sweet things, all seemed overly sweet, the bailies cheesecake was bland, but the scones were delicious. The coffee was lovely, the staff friendly and attentive. Despite these little disappointments we will be back for the autumn menu

Absolutely beautiful room an expierence is all I can say it's a must when visiting the galgorm. Sadly we had to wait an hour before our table was ready and we had ro bring it to the attention of the matridee. When the meal was finished and we asked for our bill we were given a free lunch with compliments. We thought the galgorm was the most fantastic panaromic views and just an expierence.
