About Balloo House Pub

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.

We had a wonderful evening which we are still talking about. It was the first time we had ventured out for a meal since lockdown and I have to say we were all impressed with the thought and care that had gone into providing as safe a dining experience as possible. All the tables were socially distanced with screening between them the bar staff were wearing masks and the bar was only catering to the customers in the restaurant. Staff were sanitising discretely and I have to say I was impressed with the level of cleanliness. The food was beautifully presented and cooked exactly to order 3 out of the 4 of us had steak and each order was cooked to perfection. The service was welcoming and friendly and every course arrived promptly. All in all we had a lovely evening. Many thanks.

Loved the background music. Atmosphere great, food amazing. Great service although we did wonder why all staff were not wearing masks or visors. Highly recommended.

Having not been out in a long while this was a real treat. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, the food was amazing as always... we'd lamb, sea food thai green curry with starters and the portion sizes were bang on the money. Presentation, temperature (often an under-rated factor in enjoyment) and flavour were all top drawer. Great to see the place full on Sat night, thanks to all your team, we'll be back

It had been a while since we last ate in Ballo as we have to drive to it. We were so glad we did as it was as usual first class I had the seaffod platter which was excellent whilst my wife had the Mussels which she proclaimed to be amongst the best she has ever had. Well done Ballo!!

Came here whilst visiting dad for an evening meal, lovely friendly atmosphere , nice buzz about the place but great care taken to make sure everyone felt safe. The food was a delight and well presented. My dad said it was the best lamb he had eaten for as long as he could remember and my Thai chicken curry was simply divine. Would certainly be a regular if lived closer but a bit of a trek from Hampshire ! 😀 Will definitely be back next time I’m over.
