The Old School House

Rostrevor, Newry and Mourne
16/08/2017: Had one of the best sandwiches I have ever had in this lovely cafe. The menu was varied and both food and service were excellent.
10/08/2017: Nice selection of cafes and good coffee. Some people were having more substantial meals - quite a fe wlocals eating there which is a good sign. Very nice service and good value.



Sandholes, Cookstown
10/08/2017: Great cheap breakfast with great service and all the trimmings at £4.95 for a full Irish breakfast, 2 sausages, fried egg, soda bread, potato bread, beans, mushrooms, bacon as well as a pot of tea. Piping hot as well it would be hard to get anywhere as cheap. The lunch meals looked delicious as well as the desserts.
19/07/2017: Called recently for lunch and it was the usual high standard. Hot Chicken and Bacon Salad was excellent as always, the quantity is amazing I struggled to finish! Of course the dessert just finished it all off apple crumble and fresh cream!


Planters Restaurant and Bar

Waringstown, Craigavon
30/07/2017: Excellent meals - hot food on hot plates. Friendly attentive servers. Lovely relaxed atmosphere - a really pleasant place to enjoy an evening meal.
11/07/2017: Great choice of menu and excellent food. Fantastic service. I would recommend booking ahead - even during the week. Good spot.


Yankee Star

Coalisland South, Dungannon
05/07/2017: The Yankee Star Grillhouse is one of those establishments you might miss if you don't exactly know where it is? I have to confess, despite living only 4 or 5 miles away, that I only actually finally got round to eating there pretty recently on the recommendation of my brother who has enjoyed several meals there with his workmates.First impressions were that it has that authentic, cluttered, red white and blue American diner feel to it. The sort of establishment you'd imagine was family run instead of overproduced and carefully stage managed like most of the more modern chain style American restaurants.The menu was impressive (except for the thought of the Trump burger, which made me gag a little. I'm really hoping they've changed the title of that one by now). We started with a mixed platter and tacos between 4 of us, foregoing a full starter each because I had every intention, at the time, of testing the dessert menu. All notions of a third act to the meal went out the window when our mains arrived and I half expected Adam Richman to leap out from behind our stall with a camera crew to film me eating my skyscraper of a burger! Quality certainly hadn't been sacrificed for quantity though. Every element of our starters and mains was beautifully cooked and fit to satisfy the heartiest of appetites. I suppose I could have at least tried one of their American style desserts but I had fears of combusting in the process! lolThe verdict is, if you love authentic American food and quality is an important prerequisite, the Yankee Star Grillhouse is guaranteed to satisfy. One word of warning though, you'll not manage 3 courses here so choose to do starters and mains or mains and desserts. They should give anyone who manages all three a free T shirt and a place of honour on a wall of fame!
22/06/2017: Headed to Yankee Star on our way to airport as heading off on holidays. The lunch was lovely, service was great and excellent value for money. Should visit this place more often. Thanks everyone


Timoneys Ice Cream

Ballybot, Newry and Mourne
19/08/2017: I actually had to look for the person who gave 1 star!!! I actually got a laugh out of it!! This ice cream is just the last word! Whether your sick, pregnant or just fancy treating yourself this is the place to go! So clean and all the staff are always so friendly!
07/08/2017: Family favourite - homemade ice cream never disappoints. Milkshakes are delicious too - a real favourite with the kids.


Tam O' Shanter

Kilkeel Central, Newry and Mourne
10/06/2017: We visited shortly after Christmas and had a lovely lunch. My partner had the biggest steak he's ever had and I had a lovely sweet chilli noodle dish . I'm always unsure about what veggie options I'll get in restaurants as i'm usually limited to pasta, but there was a lot I could choose from thankfully.
20/05/2017: We walked in unsure if this was a pub or restaurant. A few guys drinking at a small bar told us to go upstairs. Climbing a narrow steep stairway we entered a seating area with brown tartan carpet. A Scottish lady said they don't do half pints of Guinness as I fancied one. I'm not a drinker but I took a glass of wine and asked for water which never came.I ordered Cajun steak strips with half chips and rice. The steak meal was nice but just pricey as I got a coffee also.When we went to pay downstairs at the bar the guys were now drunker and ruder.I'm debating whether to return if in the area as food was nice.


Bide A While - Country Tea Room

Tullyhappy, Newry and Mourne

My daughter and I love the home made soup ...proper comfort food and hits the spot. The dessert are fab and very tempting, we always come away thinking when will we be back! We love this quirky tea room and would recommend it x


The Harbour Inn

Annalong, Newry and Mourne
20/08/2017: We were in on Saturday for few drinks and just decided to have a bar snack the food was excellent, my husband had the burger and I had the chicken and the service was quick and efficient. The whole meals was cooked to perfection. The setting of this place is lovely for photographs also, and not to be missed.
16/08/2017: Visiting family in Killeel and Annalong and decided to pop in for lunch. 6 adults. Had the carvery which was lovely. Excellent portions and very friendly staff. Lovey surroundings


Sintons at the bridge

Poyntz Pass, Armagh
20/08/2017: We came here on Friday at 6pm. The place looks great and seems good for special events. The staff are friendly and seem well experienced. The toilets are clean and modern. I ordered the chicken Thai curry and the rest of my group had salmon and fish and chips. They were all really nice apart from the cost. For instance, the salmon is £16 and it's only a small serving. We then ordered the chocolate brownie, knickerbox glory and Pavilova. They were all well presented and tasted great.Overall, the food and atmosphere is great however it's dear.
20/08/2017: once again we came, and again outstanding quality, from the lovely warm plates to the such well cooked food, we can never fault anything. plus the beautiful dining room and serving staff so polite. so here is to next year thank you.


Poppy Smith's

The Mall, Armagh, >100£
11/08/2017: Stopped here on route to a wedding . From the minute we opened the door we were greeted by a friendly smile from the staff . Service was quick and food was not only delicious but there was plenty of it ! On this occasion we all had a fry which was almost grease free. A great start to our day !
11/07/2017: All we had this day was some bruschetta and drinks. Both agreed the bruschetta was delicious. I really enjoyed my Americano too, especially as the waitress was kind enough to fetch me some cream to put in it.Inside this establishment is gorgeous and it has an attached supermarket and other facilities. A great place to stop off for food, drinks, topping up supplies and for stretching the legs. The prices were about mid-range but you do get what you pay for.



Kilkeel Central, Newry and Mourne
30/07/2017: The title is no exaggeration! Having been to many chippers in the area, from Kilkeel itself all the way up to Strangford, there is no doubt that all the awards this place wins regularly are well deserved. The fish may as well have jumped from the sea on to your plate it's that fresh, and the chips are consistently fresh and extremely delicious. As for the shop itself, it's consistently clean (including the bathroom!) And the staff are always beyond friendly. I wouldn't go anywhere else in Kilkeel if you're looking for a 5-Star lunch!
23/05/2017: I have both used the take away and sit in and I have to say the quality of the food from the pit stop has been nice.I like their cheese burgers and their chips with chicken gravy and broken up chicken.I will definitely be using the pit stop again.


4 Vicars Restaurant

Callan Bridge, Armagh
08/08/2017: Być w Armagh i nie odwiedzić 4Vicars? Niemożliwe! Więcej - nawet jeśli to historyczne miasto nie jest na Waszej trasie podczas podróży po Irlandii Północnej to dla tej restauracji warto zmienić plany. Nie ważne czy zajrzycie tylko na przepyszną kawę z wypiekanymi na miejscu bułeczkami scones, na lunch czy kolację - cokolwiek zamówicie będzie wyśmienite! Menu jest zmienne, ale zawsze znajdziecie tam wspaniałe zupy, pyszne dania z ryb i aromatyczne mięsa. I wszystko z lokalnych produktów. Obsługa na najwyższym poziomie! Wystrój i atmosfera lokalu zachwycają.
03/08/2017: After touring St. Patrick’s Cathedral and crypt with a knowledgeable guide, we crossed the lane to view the 18th c. charming row of houses on Vicars’ Hill. Then lunch at #4. What a surprise, just a little place but bright and airy with delicious food carefully cooked and displayed--a strong attention to detail. My mixed salad was so fresh, the lentil soup and fish nicely prepared--the bread exceptional. I felt as though I was in a small French village restaurant. Give yourself time to stop next door to see another gem—a small museum of unusual artifacts with a friendly curator.


Rice's Hotel

Poyntz Pass, Armagh
11/08/2017: Had all my family together in the Bar area for food 10adults, 3kids and 2 babies. Wide selection of starters and mains but not enough room for dessert as we had cake. Gavin very attentive as usual and food was delicious.
27/07/2017: I called in to Rices Hotel yesterday on the way home from a long days shopping with my daughter. The service was exemplary, very friendly and efficient without being overbearing, wonderful to see in this day and age. Food was fantastic, good, home cooked dishes, well presented and piping hot. I've never had a bad meal here and it left me pondering why i don't use it more often, something I intend to resolve in future


Bagel Bean

Callan Bridge, Armagh
15/08/2017: Best coffee in Armagh by a long way and the bagels are a meal on there own.Great table service from a very pleasant bunch of staff, again made this my local when visting Armagh on my annual visit,
14/08/2017: I have never been to bagel bar that caters with so many varieties. I went for the Chelsea Blue and my partner went for a Chicken BLT(I think). Anyway mine was delicious and there was plenty of chicken and bacon and the cheese satisfied my salt craving. This was a really reasonable priced place and obviously extremely popular and affordable as it was packed with youngsters. Well done.


Sugar Supper Club

Daisy hill, Newry and Mourne, 20-30£
19/07/2017: Did not realise this was a BYOB, but soon managed to sort that out. First night of the tapas menu (I believe). Ordered a number of dishes to share which varied between good and really quite good.Good value, friendly staff.
11/07/2017: Waited a while but food was great to take away! Staff friendly and helpful with advice on menu selection
