Right next to the Giant Causeway is this quaint, old inn which surprisingly served very good food. Its Irish stew was delicious as was its chocolate cake. A warm fire, friendly service and a cozy place can't be beat.

Have been here a couple of times as brought family/friends to Giant's Causeway. Due to lack of other pubs, we tend to have a drink in the Nook. It is ok for drinks if you are not too fussy but would not recommend eating here....More

Enjoyed a hot pub lunch after walking the Causeway. Didn't know what to expect, and it was packed and busy after a sudden rain shower- but food was quite good.
