Despite reviews that service was slow, we found it fine even though the restaurant was full. Our pizzas were delicious, the service was super friendly and efficient. We also had brunch here which was equally amenable. Thoroughly recommended.

24 of our immediate family from 74yrs to 2yrs old celebrated my daughters 21st birthday at Ballihoo while spending a weekend on the estate. I could not have asked for a better level of service. Jess was fantastic in understanding what we wanted from our very first (of many) emails. From food orders to table decorations & birthday cakes. The team made sure the meal went without a hitch. Everyone in a party had a fantastic evening but most of all our daughter, who will cherish the memories of the weekend forever. Thank you to Jess and the whole team at Ballihoo. You did yourselves proud 😊

Pleased to see service at the table has returned. Witnessed prospective customers turn away during the day when they saw the queue at the bar waiting to place orders. Feel the atmosphere could be improved in the evening with less light and some candles on the table. Big improvement experienced with the service yesterday. Definitely a step in the right direction.

Great convenient location, food choice was ok, salad was delicious but portions relatively small and service slow. 2 categories of food choice for children would be helpful, one for the tiny tots and one for older children, the menu does not cater for the under 5s. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful but would benefit from some training. The restaurant has the potential to be great!

The staff were very helpful, efficient and pleasant. An excellent venue for family dining or just a drink and snack.

Hi there We were staying at the lower mill estate this weekend, we ate twice at Balihoo and both times were totally let down by the service. The food (when it arrived) was actually lovely. But lots of things not available with very little apology but the service was almost non existent. Seem to be lots of staff around but still could never get anyone's attention and all seemed like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. Also I think the ordering at The bar is a shame there seems to be staff standing around all the time yet you do everything yourself! Food however was of a high quality!

We were a party of 9. After a long wait we finally ordered our food and several opted for fish and chips. No fish, even though it was on the menu and no one had told us it was unavailable. Three opted for jerk chicken wrap. When they arrived, one contained NO chicken and two contained just one piece each of undercooked chicken. The roast chicken meal was awful with soft, non-crisp roast potatoes and over cooked vegetables. The redeeming feature was the Manageress, Jess, who did all she could to remedy the situation and offered alternatives but by that time our 8 month old twins had had enough and were very unsettled so we had to leave. Our family reunion lunch was wrecked.

The restaurant gets very busy so it is definitely worth booking ahead to avoid disappointment. A good selection of meals and a kids menu. Pizzas are expensive for what they are but do taste great. Overall slightly over-priced (the general store even more so) but you are in that kind of environment so it is to be expected. On the plus, the gin selection is great!
