About The Holestone

We are a small and homely restaurant with a bright and airy atmosphere situated in the village of Parkgate, serving a range of breakfast, lunch and dinners with a variety we hope suits every taste and adaptable for any allergy or preference throughout our locally sourced menu offering a fine flair on traditional dishes. Opened by our chef Jonathan Clarke and his partner Chloe running front of house - a young couple in their early 20s - together they strive to reignite the dying trade of good honest food and proper customer service which has seen a decline over the years. Available for group bookings and functions - christenings/baby showers/birthdays and small wedding receptions. We are unlicensed but work alongside Tweedies Bar adjacent to us to deliver a greatly chosen Wine, Beer & Spirits menu.

The restaurant was busy and atmosphere was good. The menu had a good choice limited choice for each course and we were told about the specials of the night. The food was well presented and was very good. The service was very slow, as staff were covering all tables. Maybe some extra staff on busy nights or allocate staff to certain tables.The food was excellent value for money.

Our party of six had the tasting menu. We all agreed it was one of best meals we have ever had for taste and value. When you add on the 4 paired wines ( for £15) it really was a night to remember. The dishes and wines explained at each course. This was on a Thursday night and the restaurant was full. That tells you they are doing right

The Holestone has quickly become our favourite restaurant. The food is always high quality & perfectly cooked. What really makes the restaurant top class is the incredible table service you receive. The waiters & waitresses are highly trained; they are friendly, chatty, personable and they truly go above & beyond to wait on you. This restaurant is a jewel in Co. Antrim & is well worth a visit.
