About Castle Kitchen and Bar
Castle, Kitchen and Bar offers a casual style of dining with an extensive all day menu, which is also served outside on our terrace overlooking the golf course during the warmer months.
This was our first visit. Food was excellent although disappointed that not all items on menu available. (Had ran out of brisket) Atmosphere good for a Monday night Service good. Initially set 8 people at a table more suitable for 6 but staff happily moved a table to give us more room. Did it gracefully and without fuss.
Beautiful meal in stunning surroundings, would definitely recommend
Excellent service from Declan and the team. The food was great and the staff friendly and helpful. The premises have been upgraded to a very high standard.
Menu is too limited (one fish dish and salmon) Sides and dips are too expensive Menu is a bit complicated.
Refurb has totally changed the restaurant and all for the better. We'll definitely be back!
I have left a two star rating and I’ll tell you why. The food, plain and simple, was not up to standard. I had a steak and my partner had the duck. First the steak, the staple of any restaurant, was under seasoned and dry. When asked to be cooked medium-rare it was nearly well done. Served with chips and peppercorn sauce. The chips were good. No complaints. The peppercorn sauce was far too small a portion and bland. It may as well have been a bowl of heated cream. The duck, whilst smelling aromatic, again was lacking any real flavour. It was cooked well enough, but bland. Also, served in a plastic bowl with a paper liner. The liner is pretty, but when you start to cut into the duck the juices make it soggy. It starts to tear up and ended up mixing with the salad. Not a pleasant experience. The menu is small and the dessert list even smaller. Now I write this review knowing you’ve only been open a few days and may be ironing out teething problems. Which is why I didn’t give you 1 star, and will try again in a few months after the settling period. Now the good points! I must commend you on the beautiful and opulent layout/theme of the restaurant. It really is first class. The server (who’s name was Louise) also performed admirably and should be rewarded for delivering such an excellent service. A restaurant can’t survive without providing good food which unfortunately didn’t happen on this occasion and I’m afraid once the novelty of being new wears off, unless this changes, spells disaster for this establishment.
Great food in a lovely environment - great atmosphere!
Lovely experience from start to finish. Good to see someone cooking in Ballymena apart from Middletown that understands food and great flavour combinations. The decor and new windows and new bar are lovely. Our waitress was absolutely excellent. Thank you
Fantastic new establishment. Brillant Atmosphere and food. Staff very friendly and helpful.Highly recommend
Very nice setting but very limited menu and expensive considering the options No drinks list available yet So waiter had to run back and forward to computer Waiter was really pleasant and helpful but lots of room for improvement overall
Absolutely beautiful surroundings, excellent food and service.
