Fantastic food, service and space. A great fun relaxed cool vibe. Perfectly situated for kids too being next to the park. The kids menu was brilliant. Lots of choice for adults and kids alike. Including lots of Gluten free options.

Our 2nd visit in the week. 1st time we waited 1 hour 40 mins for main course (didn't complain as was 1st day post lockdown). This time round we waited 1hour 10 for mains, and then a further 30 mins for dessert. Simply not good enough, especially when the place was empty, shame as the food is good and setting wonderful

Beautiful outside seating area made even better by having a playground right next to it. Great atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. Food itself wasn’t particularly tasty but the setting itself more than made up for it.

We came for breakfast on a Saturday morning and it was a lovely and calm environment. The staff were friendly and chatty and the service was excellent. The food was incredible and of high quality. My only criticism was that I added a hash brown to my full English breakfast, which came at a cost of almost £3, which seemed a bit steep. However the quality was great. Would definitely come again!

Since the refurbishment, it's a very nice ambience. Because the food is cooked fresh, it does take a very long time to get the dishes served - the kids complained continuously. Even cooked breakfast took over 30 mins as you would have expected the sausages, bacon, etc to have been already cooked because of the footfall of people coming and going. The price is quite high considering a 4 star hotel offers the same steak at a slightly cheaper price. There should be a bit more variety such as a vegetarian curry - the only one offered was kid curry which would not have been to everyone's taste. The staff however are very friendly.

A wonderful experience at Ballihoo. On a very wet and windy weekend we were very well looked after, fed and hydrated by the fantastic team delivering seemingly effortless, friendly and attentive hospitality. The atmosphere and decor are really welcoming and as for the food...the BEST padron peppers I have EVER tasted. Thank you so much to “front of house” - Jason, Georgie, Abi, Abbie, Layna, Eleanor, Ollie, Grace and in the Kitchen...Paul, Pat, Andy, Armando and Phoebe. 🙏🏼🙏🏼👏👏

We had a lovely evening. Really enjoyed the new venue and service was friendly. Atmosphere was great. Food was very high quality and also the wine. Not all staff wore their face masks at all times which was a bit off putting. Some wore it under the nose. Personally we would’ve preferred not to have Halloween decor everywhere as it detracted from the experience. Service could occasionally have been slicker. We were asked for our orders before we’d been given a menu and then a bit of an initial confusion about the drinks order saw one of our party waiting twenty minutes for his drink which was a shame. All in all though we had a super time and would readily return.

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad you enjoyed the new changes to Ballihoo, and sorry to hear some of the staff were not wearing their masks correctly - we will make sure this feedback is passed on. Most of our guests love the decor we use to celebrate and enjoy Halloween, but we understand this may not be for everybody. We would be delighted to welcome you back again. - the team at Ballihoo

Food was nice but our order for pizza take away was messed up and we had to wait an hour and a half, not really got an apology. Breadkfast was nice enough but was shocked at the cost of an extra frozen hash brown. Staff not all wearing masks properly which was a little worrying.

Thought the food was overpriced for what it was especially the children’s meals. Whilst I’m all for kids healthy eating, chicken goujons with rocket and broccoli is not a substantial meal for £6.50.

Conveniently positioned and generally, the food was good but it’s hugely overpriced and there was a massive delay between our main and dessert which isn’t great when you’re with kids.
