Deli.licious


Bangor Castle, North Down
16/06/2019: Whilst down in Portaferry we fancied a snack... to be honest not much open and did not want a Sunday pub lunch so went to deli-licious. Food choice was good and food was excellent but there is limited seating inside so beware.
26/04/2019: Literally called in because we could not find anywhere else, but would definitely recommend. Lovely food, great value and friendly staff.

Jenny Watts


Harbour, North Down
18/07/2019: Great place. Very reasonable price/ value range. The Guinness was properly poured and the service was great. Made me feel at home. The Guinness pie and the Sea bass were amazing.
12/07/2019: Just had a great night's craic listening to some live music. The staff were (as always) very friendly and welcoming and we were treated to some of the best live music we have heard by 'Dolbro Dan'. Highly recommended.

The Salty Dog Hotel and Bistro


Harbour, North Down, 45-60£
18/07/2019: Accomodation awesome , we were in room 4 which was a large double room with views of the sea from all windows . Very clean and friendly. Dog friendly hotel if you want a sleep over with your 4 legged furry friend .
15/07/2019: My second and last time to visit. Arrived today and after ordering and getting a drink I had to investigate if I could have food as I wasn’t offered a food menu. The waitress brought me one when I enquired. She never returned .... and 15 mins later I had to make a fuss to get someone’s attention. When I said I wanted to order a sandwich she told me there was a considerable wait of 20 minutes. I replied with no problem as I was happy to sit and wait. 15 minutes later she returned and apologised saying it was going to be considerably longer and that she was happy to cancel my order. I am sure my face said enough. I sat for another 5 minutes and watched numerous people come in and be seated being told the exact same thing that there was a 20 minute wait. Completely confused as to what the issue here was today but the lack of transparency and complete rudeness has left me with a real sour taste. Take my advice and go elsewhere in Bangor.

Bryansburn Inn


Princetown, North Down
19/07/2019: Ordered the fresh cod offered as a Special on today’s lunch menu. It was, by far, the best cod I have ever had. Cooked to absolute perfection and beautifully presented. I do not normally post on these forums, but this dish was so outstanding that I felt I needed to comment.
13/07/2019: My husband and I visited the Bryansburn last night for dinner. Staff very friendly. I chose the Chicken Curry which was absolutely gorgeous I would definitely recommend this dish. My husband had the steak sandwich which he also enjoyed. We will definitely be calling again soon.

Cafe Essence


Harbour, North Down
19/05/2019: This restaurant is a hidden gem. It doesn’t have the most exciting kerb appeal but the food and service are first class. We visited as a group of friends. I have scallops for a starter, which were the best I’ve ever had, and monkfish for the main. The restaurant is byo which helps keep the price down.
25/04/2019: Café Essence is sometimes overlooked for the newer more trendy restaurant that seem to be opening all the time but it still remains amongst the best. Varied menu featuring some splendid seafood and fish and perhaps the best steak on offer in North Down! Another plus is the fact it is a "bring your own" so combined with friendly staff and a lovely ambience my advice would be to give it a try.

Rambling Rose


Crawfordsburn, North Down
01/02/2019: My two pals and I are just back from a having a meal in the Rambling Rose restaurant. Wow ...... what a gem. Our meals were absolutely delicious ... plenty of everything, fresh, tasty, wholesome food. We asked for the dessert menu. Two of us chose profiteroles and the other had the pavlova. The profiteroles were awesome - an enormous profiterole, split in the middle, filled with three scoops of ice cream, a big dollop of fresh cream beside it, a chocolate flake, strawberry and covered in caramel sauce .... to die for!!!! The service was quick and staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a wonderful food experience. We will definitely be going back again and again. First class in every way.
25/09/2018: We enjoyed High Tea here recently. An older clientele. Food was excellent, I have chicken stack and it was really good. Good portions. Very clean, decor slightly dated. Parking outside the door which was great. Staff helpful and very friendly. A good day!

Stables Groomsport


Groomsport, North Down
18/06/2019: I was at The Stables with my son and my young grandson Harry (2½) for Father's Day lunch. We were offered a High-Chair for Harry, but alas he declined it.
16/06/2019: I haven’t been here in years and it seems to be stuck back a couple of decades ago. Dated decor and menu. Food was bland at best. We sat in a roasting hot conservatory, very cramped and warm. Won’t be back ☹️

Marine Court Hotel


Harbour, North Down
23/06/2019: While in this branch last week I seen staff wiping there nose with tree hands and touching there hair with there hands and carrying a cup of coffee with the same hand holding the coffee cup where you drink from it.
23/05/2019: Have never had a 'BAD' meal here. Food is good and comes out piping hot. We've always found the staff to be more than helpful & courteous.

Teddys


Bangor Castle, North Down
25/06/2019: Having seen teddys picnic on Facebook I had to try it. My sister took me last Friday. I booked the night before and had my order confirmed that day. When we arrived there was about a 20minute wait for the food. They most likely prepare everything fresh once you arrive which is great.
02/06/2019: We met for a family birthday dinner , everyone had a different meal I had scampi and it was delicious , it was a good portion with salad and it came with a tub of chunky chips .every one liked there meal and the staff were friendly and helpful. The table was nicely set and the restaurant was very clean and tidy. Over all we had a very lovely time. The only thing that I could grip about was the back ground music was a little too loud .

The Courtyard


Crawfordsburn, North Down
20/11/2018: Okay, so this place is really, really beautifully decorated. I went into the bit at the side that is smaller and it really was a lovely setting. The food was actually surprisingly nice. I had a vegetarian sandwich that was really tasty. I hate that they have now got rid of table service; it needs it. Also, the service is incredibly slow, which is fine if you are taking your tIme, but definitely don't come here if you are in a rush. The menu choices are more limited now too. There are a lot of cafes that this place is competing with and it needs to up its game. I'd suggest getting really good quality, seasonal produce and making a big deal about it and getting the table service back up and running.
28/08/2018: I haven't been in this coffee shop for over a year. It was one of my favorite places at one time, where you had to wait for a table, but things have slipped. A year ago i went and scones were not ready for the 'coffee rush' at 10.30 am and when they did come out they were spongy and burnt. Fast forward a year and i decided to give it another go. On entering i was surprised that only 3 tables were occupied. I know that there has been a revamp and is self-service now (they maybe should have stayed with the original concept that seemed to be working). I ordered a cappuccino, filter coffee and a scone. We had no problems with the coffees, but as the young waiter was bringing over my scone and was about to sat it down he noticed (as did i) that it was blue molded, he apologised and brought the scone down to the other room, where i assume was management, for advice, they seemed to be having a management meeting as i saw them when entering the coffee shop. The waiter asked if i wanted anything in replace and i asked for a sausage roll. The sausage roll, I'm afraid, fared no better as it was heated in a microwave, meaning that it was not crisp pastry as one would except, but soggy pastry. it also tasted sour, so i had to unfortunately leave that also. So no lunch so to speak. I was surprised that the management who were undoubtedly having a meeting didn't rise to the occasion and come over to apologise. This was there opportunity to rectify the situation instead of leaving it to a young waiter, who was clearly embarrassed by the whole situation. The servers were lovely young people, but unfortunately this has done it for me, i won't be back.

The Mitre, Culloden Hotel

Cultra, North Down
27/03/2018: Booked into the Abercorn Suite which was immaculate. Champagne Tea which again was flawless. Use of the spa was a...
01/12/2017: Booked for a celebration dinner. We come to Mitre regularly for celebration meals. Over the years the silver service has deterioted, but tonight was poor. We have had great dinners here, but tonight this manager and staff did not get it.We were asked if we had any allergies. We were sorry we said yes. Every conversation with the service staff revolved around the allergy, either because they were ignoring it and serving food not suitable or because the food came out different to how it was described on the menu. We could have managed better if we had not declared an allergy. Staff were very pushy in offering just one option. Is an intolerance to dairy so unpopular?The evening was very stressful. The atmosphere was poor. Only three tables (6 people) in the entire restaurant and we were the last to leave at 9pm. Even though there was no one else in the restaurant, we left without finishing our meal due to the time it took staff to orgianise. We were promised table by the fire for tea and coffee, but staff just kept on forgetting things and confusion was every where. Food did not arrive together, I had finished my desert before my wife’s arrived. I remember the Mitre when the staff came to the table with the food at the same time and they didn’t even need to ask who was having what. Finally manager arrived due to a no WiFi card payment issue, when they asked for my card payment 3 times. I entered PIN 3 times, one of which the waitress actually saw my pin on the screeen due to her not knowing how to work the console. When I made my concerns about my security, the manager response was that the ‘staff are very trust worthy.’Unfortunately I remember the good old days when the service at Mitre was a little different from the service you would expect from your local chippy. At least the chippy had atmosphere. I expected a much better attitude from a manager of a 5* Hotel. To be so dismissive and flippant was just disrespectful to paying customers.A small discount was offered, but it was no way comparable to the ruined evening and the stress encountered dining at Mitre. I wasn’t going to stand and discuss money in the middle of a hotel reception, but the hotel manager already knew that. I have been a loyal customer at the Culloden for 15 years and tonight I think I’m finished. The manager and staff were just not interested. (Did I mention the waitress and harp player talking loudly across restaurant about how they wash their greasy hair with Pantene. It works best for greasy hair apparently!). I had to listen to this conversation while I tried to eat my dessert. The conversation said it all about the new standards I experienced at the Culloden.
