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 not been to Balloo House for a couple of years as a family but this was a good reminder of what we had been missing. The food was great, service was attentive and, once the tables around us filled up, there was a warm atmosphere. Balloo House is a great restaurant for a night out and is highly recommended.

Lovely meal , great service and a good atmosphere. Our waiters were particularly pleasant and knowledgeable. The tapenade is always a must have here, luckily it can be bought from The Poachers Pantry at their sister restaurant, The Poachers Pocket. I may buy it from there a bit ( a lot!!)

Good choice of dishes all well cooked and presented, friendly and reasonably efficient service. Did NOT think that plastic plates (used for 3 out of 4 starters and one out of our 4 desserts) are appropriate for a restaurant of that calibre and prices of £40 + per head!

We had the most amazing day at Balloo on Boxing Day. From the original booking to the attention we received on the day from Vanessa and her team was exceptional. We had a special occasion to celebrate and Vanessa made sure the day was one to remember. Thanks so much to everyone at Balloo House

Six of us had a fabulous meal, the restaurant was buzzing, brilliant ambiance, the food was served hot and considering that the restaurant was extremely busy, the wait wasn’t too long for our orders.

Food wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Service was really lacking to be honest. We eat out alot and service is something which we all recognise is the thing that makes the difference. It just lacked any warmth. End of a busy day perhaps but won't rush back

Yummy meal for a reasonable price (approx £30 for 3 courses). Beautiful country pub setting with great service. Will definitely be back!

Only thing I would say is that my Guinness wasn't the best, perhaps not enough getting poured.
