They completely refurbished this place during 2009-10 and it’s now one of the top places to eat on the Ards Peninsula. This is a true village pub where you can cosy up to the turf fire during winter, or relax in the beer garden in summer.
Meat and game are their specialities, and with such fantastic produce on their doorstep, it’s a no-brainer. The local village butcher provides the burgers which are served with a homemade relish.
They don’t ignore the water though. Strangford Lough mussels and Irish Sea prawns arrive daily from the nearby fishing ports. We love how the mussels are done in a broth. And how cool does Rockin Goose Ale Battered Cod sound?
You might be lucky to get one of the private snugs to yourselves. Then no one will see you devouring a Guinness hazelnut and chocolate brownie… Or a huge bowl of Will Taylor’s Glastry Farm ice-cream?
