Our 125 seater restaurant is cosy and full of character with vaulted ceilings, old beams, huge fireplaces and Belfast brick. If you gaze out the window you will see beautiful views towards Stormont and the Craigantlet Hills.
Using locally sourced products to give you that unforgettable local taste, all freshly prepared by our chefs! For a special treat why not try our sumptuous afternoon teas served on silver cake stands. Perfect to share with a friend on a day out.
Outside are beautiful gardens and a two acre nursery full of plants, tubs and hanging baskets grown by ourselves so do not hesitate to ask for free plant advice from our knowledgeable horticulturists! We also have a beautiful gift centre and a mens, ladies and childrens boutique!

Lovely lady served us and made sure I got what I came for even though it wasn't on the Christmas menu. So pleased, can't wait to come back when you reopen.

The ladies night for me went very well with great company and a laugh as usual with my family and friends. Although the government threw out more restrictions that very afternoon having an impact on all social settings, social distancing in this restaurant has been thought of to a high standard. The front of house staff are as always friendly and very helpful. The food is outstanding, presentation and flavour is hard to beat and I certainly didn’t leave hungry, compliments to the Chefs. The event was great and I got quite a few items from the craft stalls. I will be booking my next evening event soon. If you haven’t already give it a go you won’t be disappointed.

Great meal with my Wife and Duaghter. Ambiance when arriving was a little strange, but I think it was because we we're the first few customers in for dinner. The food was fantastic, I got the BangBang Chicken which was excellent and my Wife got Cottage Pie, which I have to say I wish I had gotten when it arrived at the table! Also, kids eat free which was fantastic.

Staff were extremely friendly and tentitive. Only downside which is nothing really of note, but the bell that rings to call the waiters to collect the food was a little irritating and quite loud, but like I say this was not a rating changer.

Look forward to return again.
