We had a great nights stay, while in the area visiting the Gardens of Antrim. I know the thunder and lightning storm was not the norm, but it was spectacular. Our room was comfy as was the bed. Lovely lounge area. Our hosts, Lyn and...Denis very welcoming and knowledgeable.Great Breakfast set us up for the day.More

The owners made us very welcome and were very helpful about places to visit. Breakfast was a real feast which could keep one going all day. The only drawback was that they don't accept credit or debit cards a fact which we only discovered after...our late evening arrival and was not really suitable for the disabled,, another which we were advised about but too late to look for us to look for somewhere easier for me to get around. However, the bedlinen was spotlessly white, the sheep across the road serenaded us to sleep and we woke to the twitterings of the swallows. It is situated on a quiet country road with mountains to one side and views across the sea to Scotland from the other and this includes the dining area. We enjoyed our stay and would go back when in the area again.More

We had a family birthday meal on Sunday at Lynden Heights and as with all previous occasions the food, the service and views from the restaurant were all excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this family run restaurant to anyone- you will not...be disappointed.More

Went last friday night with my wife. It has been about 6/7 years since our last visit, we used to visit it quite regulary especially for their christmas dinner which was always excellent. Only really stopped because of the drive from home, either it was...foggy, or ice or snow etc and the roads could be quite bad, also parking wasn't (isn't) great. If the restaurant is busy then the smallish car park fills up quickly. Rang Friday afternoon to see if we could get a table for that evening at eight. One of the owners took the call (the lady) tried to get us to change to 7:30 - settled on 7:45. Now when we arrived there was really no need to try and get us to change or time, it was busy but not packed in fact we were the last to arrive for dinner (7:45 on a Friday night). Obivioulsy wanting us to arrive at 7:30 was for the convienence of Lynden Heights. Arrived and no welcome just as well we had been their before so we made our own way into the small bar area and found ourselves a seat. The lady owner was infact sitting at a table talking to other I assume regular guests when she was finished she got up and disappeared without a word to us. The husband then appeared - again didn't ask for our booking but produced menus and asked if we wanted a drink from the bar. Not a big selection of bottled beer (mine in fact was quite warm) but a decent selection of wine. The bar/waiting area hasn't changed since we first starting going over 20 years ago - still the same carpet, painted walls, bar etc, in fact the toliets haven't changed either in years still the same wall paper etc. Shown into the dinning room/conservatory this again hasn't changed since it was built, same carpet, curtains, pink table cloths, plastic flowers on the tables. However the food choice and value and quality are excellent. We opted for the 3 course set menu for £16 which included tea or coffee. All courses were excellent, fresh and well cooked. This could be a really excellent spot if only they spent a little money updated the decor etc and also spent a little bit of money on traing their staff and the owners on customer service. Would I reutrn - maybe in another 6-7 years because you just don't go out for the food but the overall experience you are looking for a wow factor which overall you just don't get. Does food very well for the more mature dinner who is looking for the traditional with a twist.More

We stayed at Lynden heights for 2 nights in July. The owners are very friendly and made us feel right at home. We ate in 'Lynden Heights' Restaurant on both nights as it was so good on the first night. Excellent food and very reasonable...too. We have re-booked for September which is the next time we have a couple of days away. Highly recommended!!More

We were warmly greeted and seated in what had probably been the living room. Seating was well spaced out with a small bar in the corner. The host spoke to everybody, and seemed to know some well. Orders were taken from your table and the...drinks brought to you. It had a wide wine selection. The menu choice was good and very reasonably priced. We were then taken into the conservatory for our meal which was comfortable with stunning views over the sea to Scotland, clearly visible. Again the tables were well spaced and the service was excellent. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to help. I will definitely visit here again. Unfortunately they were fully booked or we would have stayed over.More

Visited this wonderful Restaurant last Week. The views over the Coast Line are just Stunning. The Restaurant Intimate and Warm. The Menu A La Carte or the Table Dhote are just sublime. We went for the Table D'hote. We both had Starters the Pate &...Warmed Mackerel Salad. For the mains we had the Aged Sirloin Steak & my Wife had the Chicken with Tarragon & White Wine Sauce. Both served with vegetables of the Day & Potatoes. For the Sweet try the Ginger Sponge Pudding & Custard(To Die For!!) The Service was Excellent, not rushed, professional and Welcoming. It was a pleasure to Dine here and the Food was of such High Quality that I recommend anyone to visit this Jewel. The Price very Reasonable for the Quality of the Food and Service. I would however recommend that you Book in advance as the Restaurant can get very busy and the Restaurant is only Open Friday Night,Sat Night,Sun Lunch & Sun Nights http://www.restaurant.lyndenheights.com/ I look forward to my return.More
