About Balloo House

Walking into Balloo House, you’ll immediately be struck by its atmosphere of ease, comfort and conviviality, due in part to good company, sturdy stone walls and time–worn flagstones. If the weather is inclement, with a sharp wind blowing off nearby Strangford Lough, you can warm your essentials on the old range, a remnant of Balloo’s farming days. Other parts can be warmed by the fine selection of spirits, wines and beers on offer at this colourful watering hole. And if you didn’t have an appetite beforehand, a perusal of the sumptuous bistro menu is sure to induce one.

Went here with family 6 plus 2 children, very uncomfortable all squashed into seats and directly behind the bar. Food menu restrictive, Sunday menu. Choice not great. why is this, after all we are ones paying for it and expensive and food was small portions. Service very slow. Not good when small children waiting on food. No reason to go back here. Went here for years, not anymore.

Food not as good as usual, flavour not just there. the new menu is has changed many of the favourites are no longer available which is very disappointing, for regular customers.

We love the food in Balloo. Service is excellent. Was a wee bit slower on Sunday but everyone was polite and it was busy so we didnt mind. One comment..cutlery needed to be changed as the knives had fingerprints over them. Again waiters were courteous.
