Try the Double Cheese Burger with Bacon!
The service can be a little but slow but it is well worth the wait! We dined alfresco in the lovely garden outside the cafe which gives you views of the castle .
Lunch - a burger (very good) and scampi. Lukewarm plates meant that the food was cold before we had eaten. The - in my opinion - more serious error was that excellent crisp scampi was plated on top of mushy peas (also above average). The...result was that a potentially excellent meal was down graded by batter made soggy by the mushy peas. What a pity.More
Somewhat underwhelmed. Sadly a local cafe seems to have been replaced by a functional chain and has really lost its ‘home cooked’ feel. It’s now lost its charm. Staff used to be lovely and friendly - still very pleasant but seem to be young students...lacking in a bit of confidence. The place has stacks of potential but needs to move away from the feel of a Cafe Nero. Let’s get some local charm back. Not a fan of having tray bakes served on saucers because they ran out of plates as a simple example.More
We visited last week- busy because of “eat out to help out” but the Glenarm classic burger is well worth the wait. Visited the shop to buy topside. All the beef is from their own Organic shorthorn herd and not at all expensive given the...quality. The lady in the shop even gave me her lunch cool bag to transport the meat home. Will be back!More
Popped in here today and it was open for carry out......this used to be our favourite place but had really gone down hill badly last year......we're we shocked.....it has been taken over by GROUND......coffee and fresh gorgeous things especially caramel squares......to die for......went back in...for seconds.....Lovely friendly helpful welcoming staff......and lovely lady in reception to welcome us in......excellent social distancing.....loved it......can't wait to go back to this special placeMore
My husband and I have been coming to the Tea Rooms since they first opened. We have watched it grow from the original to the lovely place it is now. However on our last visit we were very disappointed in the food. My husband had...the Chowder which is usually outstanding, but it was served in what I can only describe as an oversized crispy bap. I had the chicken goujons which were overdone and dry. The coffee was very good and the lemon drizzle delicious. We will be back as we love the gardens. Hope next time it will be better.More
Been here on several occasions and although I still have a fondness for this cafe (and it's beautiful location) it's tainted by being able to provide consistent delicious food together with staff who are either friendly or at worst unwelcoming... even grumpy (Shirley!)
On our...recent visit I had hoped for the seafood chowder but it wasn't on the menu so opted for a toasted sandwich (turkey and stuffing) it was a bland tasting bite with little contents. I actually opened it and looked inside with disappointment and the scattering of crisps on the side didn't change my opinion. Previously when I have ate here the food was delicious, usually complimented with some side salad but not on this occasion.
Fingers crossed management take heed of this review and when I return hopefully the quality of food and customer service will be more consistent!
(PS The clothing shop, fudge shop and delightful little curiosity shop in the courtyard are great and certainly worth a visit to browse or buy!)More
