Visited here with friends and I would recommend this place if you are looking for a nice lunch. Steak pie is homemade and very tasty. Decent portions and the staff are really friendly and efficient. Sit in the conservatory if you can as this provides stunning views over the water. A roaring coal fire in the bar makes the place... More

We were on a family holiday in the area and called in on our last day in Portpatrick for some lunch. It was cold outside so what a nice welcome the roaring fire was. We sat in the conservatory/sun room overlooking the harbour. We ordered our food and drink at the bar. Steak pie, chicken curry and two kids portions... More

We ordered a hake meal (with chips) and belly pork. The hake was nicely cooked but the chips were poor. The pork belly was under cooked and came with potatoes served with caramelised onions that had so much sugar I found them inedible - this aspect of the dish was not mentioned in the menu. The staff we dealt with... More
