Me and my friend took a bite in The Nook after visiting the Giants Causeway. Had great food - fish and chips and a goat cheese sandwich, both pretty big portions. There was a fireplace inside - very nice in cold weather. The only thing making me not give it 5 stars is - check your money when they give... More

As a local to the area I decided to call in to the nook for some grub after a walk around the headland. I ordered an open prawn sandwich which cost approx. £10. What a rip off! As well as very poor quality the portion was so small I had to make lunch again when I got home. It's a... More

We enjoyed a good tasting Irish Stew and seafood pie along with a smooth pint of Guiness at the Nook. It was rainy and cold outside but they had a fire going which was great. It was very busy, but the staff worked hard and were efficient. The prices were moderate.

A good place for lunch/afternoon tea/drink before or after your visit to the Giants Causeway. Park in their car to save on the official parking next door. Prices are maybe a bit higher than a standard pub, but not bad considering it's the only place right next to such a popular visitor location, which is in the middle of nowhere
