Beautiful restaurant with a lovely menu. Food was very tasty but 2 people had the Greencastle fish. Unfortunately it was very greasy and made me feel a little queasy. The room was also very cold but other than that the service and the staff were first class.

The service & standard of food was fantastic. My husband commented that he had never tasted lamb that had been cooked to such a perfect standard ( and he does like his lamb) . An amazing dining experience, we could not recommend it highly enough.

We dined here before Tommy Tiernan on Thursday night and it was such a lovely experience the food was amazing! We were served by lovely staff all who were so friendly and more than helpful. There was a lovely girl who was serving us I’m not sure of her name but she was wearing different uniform to the rest of the staff more formal a blazer and skirt. I just wanted to mention that she made us feel so welcome and was more than helpful when we were ordering. To say she is good at her job is an under statement! Would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone and cannot wait to return.

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel and so took advantage of The Gown. The atmosphere is most welcoming, as are the staff, who without exception were friendly, helpful and professional. As within Derry itself, there was a “buzz” about the restaurant which really enhanced the dining experience. We will be visiting Derry again in the near future and look forward to another faultless meal at The Gown.

The women singing in the bar during our meal should have been asked to stop, they where customers and they're singing was awful and rather annoying and lowered the tone of the place.
