Situated at the junction to Giants Causeway its an ideal stop after the long walk visiting the stones. Decent range of beers at reasonable prices (considering its location) served by friendly staff. Nice looking menu and the food that came out looked good too.

A genuine feel of being in a “Isle movies” (just to include both Britain and Ireland). Original exterior, nice interior, quick service, they accept debit cards. Oh, and I tasted a new type of beer for me: MacArdles-traditional ale. Also very good!

The nook honours its name: it’s small, snug and comfy. It’s also convenient if you come to the causeway and want to grab something to eat in less than 30 mins. I especially liked my fish pie, which was freshly made with fish, seafood and...More

Went there after our trip to the giants causeway and on a wet and cold day we were greeted by the staff who were very kind and had a delicious Irish Stew with brown bread! There was quick service and the pub was very comfortable...More
