Good service and great food , will be back when lockdown is over.
Booked for Xmas eve. Hoped for a table in the restaurant but ended up sitting directly across form the bar. Disappointed in this.
Love the Hillside but our table was upstairs beside the unlit fire and although busy lacked a little ambience.
Always friendly staff and atmosphere at the hillside..quality food and beer! Great pub!
Great character and food as expected enjoyed the night
Staff were extremely friendly and efficient, the steak unfortunately was cold and way too fatty. In fact, worst steak have had I can remember.
Another wonderful dining experience. Faultless in every aspect. Guinness like a Dublin early house too!! What's not to like!!?
4 of us booked for lunch on Tuesday 22nd Dec , place was not overly busy about 20 in place .
Got drink fairly quickly & ordered starters & main , all fine & food was enjoyed by all of us . We were then asked if we wanted desserts , so we got the menu for a look , after 25 minutes no one came back to us for our order , we wanted more drink & desserts , we then decided at this point to just leave . 4 staff just chilling at bar so I paid and left .
Terrible service , be a long time before I return to hillside ..
Lovely lunch time venue. Cosy and welcoming in the bleak mid winter.
Lovely meal in lovely surroundings! Would recommend
The food was good and the staff are efficient and friendly.
The ambience was cosy and warm, not too noisy. Food was nice portion size, very tasty and good value. Service was grand.. My only complaint would have the downstairs ladies need checked for paper..
Amazing dinner.. enjoyed... Will definitely be back
Good food, lovely bar. Very safe Covid precautions.
Myself and my two daughters were in the Hillside on Friday 18th for a wee pre Christmas treat i booked a few weeks back and was pleased it was happening everything was perfect except, we had to ask for spoons for our starter's and knives and forks for our meal we asked, for salt and pepper and were given 4 sachets my daughter asked the next table for there's but all ok. I will be back again and hopefully all will be ok
The food was delicious and atmosphere was great . Staff very helpful
First Christmas dinner of the year & it was delicious !!
Catching up with family. It was a lovely evening.
Our visit to the hillside was amazing! The staff where fantastic, felt like we had the pub and staff to ourselves. I couldn't fault the staff or the food at all.
I did slip on the steps up to the restaurant and our mains arrived before our starters.
However once everything was rectified, we had a delicious meal which we really enjoyed.
We felt very safe in terms of COVID measures.
It's a fabulous bar/restaurant. The staff are all friendly and efficient. I'd thoroughly recommend the Hillside to anyone.
Nice service, good atmosphere happy they have re-opened
Great to be out again, The Hillside had a great set-up all things considered. The table service was excellent and the food was delicious. Thank you
Service was poor. Food was poor. Very disappointing!
Food was lovely as always. Looking forward to my next visit.
We had a lovely meal and the atmosphere was great.
Excellent food and service as usual
Went back after another lockdown. All set up with good social distancing and all table service! Food was amazing as always!
Loved it 🥰
Hillside is the perfect place for good food and real ales always on tap.
Christmas dinner was excellent.
Food piping hot & well presented.
Really good value for money too!
Service was very slow (not busy) and both our rump steaks were very chewy and everything was salty. Sad to say it was disappointing. They did discount our bill (we usually never complain) however we wouldn’t return.
The hillside always satisfies, the food was delicious and the staff Very helpful.
Beautiful meal in a very cosy bar setting. Staff were so lovely as always. Can’t wait to go back 😊
Food was lovely. Katie was just fab. Such lovely service and a credit to the Hillside.
Best bar food we have ever had would totally recommend to anyone
We love coming to the Hillside as it is an old fashioned traditional pub without a television showing sport in sight! The staff are lovely and the food is fabulous and such good value for money. We are hoping that it opens again soon as can’t wait to try the Christmas menu.
Booking process was quick and easy. Booked a table for two to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. There was a few people eating in the bar as we entered. We weren’t quite sure what the procedure was so we hovered near the door and sanitised our hands. We were greeted by young girl who brought us to our table in the Restaurant We chose two courses, which came with (small) glass of wine, for £15 each. My starter was really lovely, Panko mushrooms with Aioli. Burger which followed was nice, if a little dry. It was a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon and staff were professional and friendly. Would recommend.
Thank you for a lovely meal with great service. The offer was fantastic value for money and great portions too.
We both really enjoyed our food, we both had the chicken burger - very tasty. The Hillside is always our first choice in Hillsborough, as it’s dog friendly, which we love.
We were in the bar so noise level understandably a bit louder, haddock well cooked, chips a little hard and more dips than food on the plate. Service good though had to ask for salt and vinegar. Ok nothing special.
