Bangor Castle, North Down
10/08/2019: Seems to be one the most popular. However didn't stay for food as they did not accept card payments. Went to an Amazing place a short drive away called Harrisons which I don't think anywhere in Portaferry can rival.
31/07/2019: Go here for a great Ulster Fry - you won’t be sorry! We always make sure we have breakfast here when we’re in Portaferry.


Jenny Watts

Harbour, North Down
06/11/2019: This is a well established bar with a regular clientele. It's a good place to meet up with friends and to have a meal
06/10/2019: Friday night dinner of Guinness Pie and I had the seafood chowder which was a massive proportion and absolutely delicious. The pie was also large and delicious with a big fluffy pastry top. Great service and friendly staff highly recommend


Cafe Essence

Harbour, North Down
05/11/2019: Love it here. Food is freshly sourced daily. Most tasty dishes. Food is fantastic and service great. Fish is to die for
12/10/2019: Probably the best in Bangor and tgere is some decent competition. Highly recommend the Surf and Turf on Thurs evening and the rack of lamb is tremendous. BYOB.


Cultra Inn

Cultra, North Down

The Salty Dog Hotel and Bistro

Harbour, North Down, 45-60£
02/11/2019: Really nice meal and portion sizes Will be back again soon. Lovely seating area and staff very attentive.
01/11/2019: Came for a quick pint of Guinness. 4hours later and I’m just leaving. Dog friendly (inside and out), although I chose outdoor to enjoy the views across BELFAST Lough. The seafood chowder is beautiful- the crusty bread with it is exceptional


pit stop

Conlig, North Down, <20£
06/11/2019: We heard of this place from some friends who go for breakfast some mornings, so, we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. The breakfast was excellent, enough of it, and served in a reasonable time at a reasonable price. Will definitely be going back.
01/11/2019: Not a good choice for older kids unfortunately. Shame as it is so convenient to Eddie Irvines next door. My kids had two poor experiences in the same week with awfully rude staff members to my kids aged 13, 14 and 10 who popped in on their own to get a quick lunch after karting. Food is good and place is clean but I am afraid this place has lost my (and a few other parents) custom. Staffing issues need addressed here when serving older kids. Very disappointing.


Eighty One

Holywood Demesne, North Down
05/11/2019: I popped in here for the first time after my morning pilates class. I had a lovely cuppa and a german biscuit. It was quite busy with groups of friends having either breakfast, lunch or a cuppa with a bun or cake.
06/10/2019: Came here today with our daughters for a light lunch. Service was very good and food came quickly, was well presented and tasty.


Bryansburn Inn

Princetown, North Down
04/11/2019: After a very busy morning with family and grandkids we decided to call in for afternoon lunch. A big disappointing experience. We were shown to our seats and given menu's. The waitress offered also specials on the menu. After 10/15 minutes I mentioned to my partner my trousers felt odd. On checking my trousers were very damp and my partner's coat edge was damp. What occured was the seating area was soaking. The waitress apologized and moved us to seats by the door and offered blue roll. I was offered to take off trousers in toilet to dry with dryer. Really??? The area we had moved from did not get sectioned off apart from a small sigh table reserved which we had to keep telling the staff people will sit at that table. The meal was okay but didn't enjoy or finish as had to rush home to get changed. We were not offered an apology from management and no discount on meal. In fact the comments from waitress was unlucky as the meal deal had only just finished when you had arrived. Will we be back NO
27/10/2019: We booked the Bryansburn Inn for my wifes birthday lunch. we chose our own menu of 5 starters and 4 set sunday Roasts plus a fish dish. The Manager was very helpful in sorting our lunch out and facilitated bringing our own birthday cake and Gluten free dishes. The food was really good and portion sizes were more than adequate. The restaurant was fully occupied, so obviously very popular. Would definitely recommend



Bangor Castle, North Down
21/10/2019: Went to Teddy's with 2 friends. I can't complain about the service as it was great but my meal was inedible. Advertised as 'firecracker vegetables' served with a choice of side, salad and coleslaw.. what I got was a plate of mushy vegetables, in a gallon of really thick bbq sauce and noodles; it was disgusting. When the server returned for the plate and seen that it was still full, he asked was it too hot,I told him that it wasn't what I thought it was going to be and was disgusting; he took it away and when I went to pay, I was still charged for the uneaten meal which I think is poor practice. I will definately not be back.
13/09/2019: Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and beautifully presented food. Very pleasant atmosphere. We were a group of 4 who hadn’t booked and went for dinner, they sat us right away and the service was faultless. Each of us had a different dish and all enjoyed our meals.


The Ruddy Duck

Holywood Demesne, North Down
05/10/2019: Very poor chips. I would have thought cooking chips is pretty simple and difficult to get wrong. Not so.These had barely seen the fryer. Cook your chips for longer please!
08/09/2019: Had a very nice birthday supper. Cod Fish & Chips and Haddock Fish & Chips, complete with mushy peas. I preferred the Haddock, Thought the peas were a little dry. Part of our trip to find the best chippy in North Down.


Stables Groomsport

Groomsport, North Down
10/11/2019: A very enjoyable meal of salted beef starter followed by sea bass special which was recommended by the staff and did not disappoint.
07/11/2019: My family have supported this restaurant for over 25 years and having visited tonight for a special gathering we will never go back. On arrival the sign told us to wait to be seated, there were no staff to greet us so we just went in. The atmosphere was as cold as the temperature inside. We witnessed one couple coming in for a table and standing waiting for a length of time before someone arrived. Only two staff on the floor one waitressing and one sometimes behind the bar. Food was bland and nowhere as good as the previous visit - on leaving we noticed other customers with their coats on. This used to be a very popular, warm and lovely place to go to with friendly attentive staff and Keith or Paul talking to the customers - I hope the owners are responsive to this feedback and take the necessary action as I am sure many others feel equally disappointed. Please get this restaurant back to its former glory


Marine Court Hotel

Harbour, North Down
01/10/2019: Called in here for a meal late afternoon on a Sunday. Ordered the roast beef dinner and my partner had the chicken. The service was very friendly and the meals were very tasty and plentiful and very reasonably priced.
26/09/2019: Super dinner large portions and good choice arrive before 6pm and get three courses under 20gbp. comfortable restaurant with excellent service


The Frying Squad

Bloomfield, North Down
15/09/2019: Seems there hasn’t been review in a while. Can’t say anything bad lovely fish not greasy chips great gougons were thick strips of chicken very tender sausage supper fish suppers and chicken fillet burger was what we ordered and it was grand! At the end of the day it’s a chippy not Gordon Ramsay’s!!!
09/09/2019: The quality of the Cod was good but was overcooked and burnt. Chips were good but the portion size was absolutely shocking! Definitely not good value for money.

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.
