A few of us went for the steak night which is great value at £12 per steak with a free drink (including alcoholic drink). Fantastic value but despite ordering a very well done steak it arrived and once I cut into it there was blood all over the plate. I couldn't eat it so I sent it back but when... More

Welcome *** Restaurant staff ***** Bar staff *** Main course *** Sweet ** This was very much pub grub and plenty of it. Vegetables were very good and crunchy but lukewarm which was a pity.

Never been disappointed with the food in the back shed. Good size of portions and staff always been friendly. The back shed has a great selection of beers including clonmel, estrella damn and heverlee. Well worth a visit at lunch or for dinner.

Popped in today with the wife, lovely restaurant upstairs, only one other table in so we're seated quickly, food was reasonable, she had the goujons and I had the sausages and mash, good quality sausages although the potatoes seemed to be smash, waitress was very pleasant, would go back😀

One of my favourite pubs in Antrim. With the Cova at the front it's a great place to socialise. Good on rugby days with big TVs at the bar. In the evening they have musicians which always adds to a great night out.
