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.
Our night was so enjoyable food was lovely I adored my salad ( candied walnuts one ) ! I thought everything was first class BUT Declan was much much more than that he is the reason our night was so good ! What an ambassador for the Galgorm owners !
Delicious food and relaxed environment
Super food with great service. Will definitely be back!
Popped over on Sunday for lunch with the family. The food was absolutely divine and a real friendly buzz about the place. Without doubt thee best for food and drinks in the Ballymena area Great family lunch - we will be back soon!
Really loved the tasty food, good size portions and friendly staff. Would definitely visit again. Many thanks.
We thoroughly enjoyed our outing and how well we were accommodated while watching the match after our meal(though not the result!)
We had a Club Sandwich, which was very nice (not much you can do wrong with a Club Sandwich) and a Steak and Guinness Pie which was 10/10 for taste but the quality of the steak was one of the worst we have ever had, it was very very chewy and riddled with elastic band fat, which I left at the side of the plate. Your Chef probably has to work with the steak he is given, but surely when he is cubing the steak he should remove sinewy fat. Had the steak been good we would have given a 5 star report, but it was so poor that we have to give 2 stars for food. Also, one of us had a Large Cabernet Sauvignon and the other has a small, when we set the 2 glasses side by side there was barely any difference in the amount of wine in the 2 drinks, certainly not worth an extra £1 to have a teaspoonful extra wine, the quality of the wine was however good. All in all, you get a much better quality meal in Gwen's Café in Ballymena for half the price? Last time we had one meal with such poor quality was Mermaid in Portrush, where a Rump Steak was barely edible it was so chewy, I had sore teeth and gums for 3 days after persevering to eat it, and Portstewart Golf Club where we had 3 very poor fish dishes after previously having one of the best meals we had ever had. We will give your Restaurant another try in a while and have Steak and Guiness Pie again to see if anything has changed, you should reject bad meat back to your butchery supplier and when they get enough returns, they will get the message and start to send you good quality steak.
I had an amazing meal beautifully presented and staff were fantastic. I watched the way the head chef and the kitchen staff worked together and saw total respect for each other. The decor and ambiance were second to none. I eat out regularly in Belfast but this is worth travelling to. I left feeling great as this place has all the elements required. I easily give the Castle 5/5. Can’t waut to go back.
Excellent and varied new menu. Many thanks to Christine and the others for a great evening. Will revisit asap.
We all had an excellent meal and the service was first class. There was 25 of us and we were all catered for in a timely and professional manner
Such a pretty warm atmosphere , love the cherry blossom and lighting
Good food, nice venue.
Service and atmosphere brilliant. Food good, but would prefer more choice for mains. Overall enjoyed.
The food on this occasion was quite poor compared to our previous experience, starters were just okay some main dishes within in our group were good but one main meal was completely inedible. Unfortunately no consistency. Although what saved this was that the service was good and one of the meals was removed from our bill without question.
Decor is stunning, really pleasantly surprised. Host was brilliant, nothing was too much bother, staff all very helpful & friendly! Food was to die for! Lovely touch with the surprise in the napkins. First time here & I will definitely be back! Thank you so much for such a beautiful evening.
I really enjoyed the tiger prawns and homemade burger. My chum had the salmon and commented on the lovely flavour however was disappointed with few sticks of broccoli and few baby boils. It would had been better complimented with substantial spuds or mash and more fresh veg.
First time at the Castle Bar and Grill. Was not disappointed, will definitely be back!
Very pleased with the level of service received and the attention to detail to help make a birthday celebratory meal so enjoyable for everybody concerned.
This was my second visit and service is the only thing we have had a problem with both times.
Brilliant place! Lovely food and staff are great!
We visited whilst staying over in the galgorm for our wedding anniversary . Firstly it’s great the galgorm provide return transport from the resort , but when you are in the castle the service is amazing. The staff simply can’t do enough for you. The steaks are absolutely fantastic and super tasty. This is our 4th visit to the castle now and my husband constantly raves about. Shame to have missed Declan last night, but the other staff members were just as good. See you again soon
The club sandwich wasn't as good as usual
Food and Service brilliant. The roast beef special was a highly, 3 out of 4 of us had it and all really enjoyed it!
Very nice meal in a family friendly atmosphere definitely recommend
