Our Restaurant is one of the most idyllic places to eat in Bushmills, offering all-day dining and serving the finest dishes using seasonal and locally-sourced produce in an elegant, atmospheric and relaxed setting. Our emphasis is on quietly unobtrusive, yet attentive service. We offer a sophisticated yet informal environment, showcasing our rich history and heritage in the setting of the original 17th century stables and wine cellar, contrasted by intimate snugs with whitewashed walls and warm mellow brick timbers.

Hide away in a booth, choose a seat in the Garden Room, meet friends in the Arches for a special occasion, with a choice of fine wines from our extensive wine list, or enjoy a traditional Sunday Carvery with all the family. We work with the finest artisan producers, local farmers and fishermen to source the very best ingredients.

    A superb evening with incredible service. Wonderful food, starting with the best soup ever, the Guinness Onion Soup. Think of a French Onion soup taken to a new, higher level. Stop by the Gas Bar a few steps away for a pre-dinner or post-dinner drink. We truly loved our stay.

    I liked it so much on Friday that I returned on Saturday again. It again was a splendid experience, pleasant atmosphere, amiable staff, and excellent quality. While the staff is “almost invisible”, in a way, they're always right there to support. Everyone, really everyone, is supportive, friendly, neatly dressed and communicative. They made me feel at home.. It's superb! One of the best experiences I had in a while. Not the cheapest, but worth the price.

    Ordered the pork taster but strange mixture of sweet pastry and macaroons with pork that just didn’t work!also had a very noisy large party seated near us. Starters and puddings were good and service great.

    This is second time we have eaten here in 6 months. The food is very good, as too is the ambience. But the same criticism persists from when we visited in January - the cost and the number of staff who tended to our table. £300 for a table of 4 (excluding gratuity) in this day and age is excessive. Granted the food was very good but the prices are on the high side when we are all feeling the pinch. Secondly, during our 90 minute stay we had 5 different members of staff coming to our table, surely this is not an effective use of resources. A 5/5 for the food, but would like too think that our criticism is constructive.

    A great place for dinner. The service was impecabble and the food of the highest quality. The place buzzed. We understand that the present owner has sold the hotel to an American consortium. They will undoubtably ruin it by catering to US tourists ans they have done with the Rondolf in Oxford.

    This is a lovely hotel and restaurant, and the service was great, but the back booths could use some ventilation (it was very stuffy). My husband liked his seabass, but my cauliflower dish was laughable. I did enjoy the guiness onion soup.

    The food is locally sourced and excellent quality. The hummus dip we had for starter with breads wasn’t the best but other dips made up for it. Mains of lamb and chicken with sides of champ, peas and carrots were delicious. I had a special G&T which was nice but the amaretto sour cocktail wasn’t the best (no cherry or egg white - therefore not really an amaretto sour!). Overall highly recommended for the food and ambience, lovely.
