Large party of 18 - great service and great food. Had a brilliant time here. Will definitely be back.
Enjoyable n lovely place
Top quality food at a very reasonably price Excellent staff
Great food and fantastic service
Not my first time here so I knew what to expect. Very happy with my meal, friendliness of staff and general vibe.
Good food, quick and efficient service. Definately be back.
Great turkey and ham but we missed the crackers and party hats! The walk in Christmas dinner was cheaper than the pre ordered Christmas dinner.
Fab! Really good Christmas dinner and great service
Meal was lovely but disappointed that we were seated at 2 different tables. Didn't really feel like we were out for a xmas dinner with everyone as we could only speak to the other 3 people at our table. We had a table of 11 booked and if we had been told this we would not have booked.
Party of 8 having Christmas lunch and everyone was very complimentary about every aspect of the afternoon. Staff were amazing, especially considering how busy they were, food was fabulous, we had a wide selection of dishes, and all of them were perfectly cooked and presented. Thank you so much, will definitely recommend and be back soon. Happy Christmas 🎄🎅
Great night from food to service and entertainment.
3rd year we have been there for Chrismas dinner. Excellent food and service!

Lovely food, quick service and good atmosphere
Exceptional service - the staff were incredibly accommodating and patient, both during the booking process and during the meal considering we had a large party with both last minute additions and people not showing up. The food was delicious and they had a wide variety of options for everyones dietary requirements, which is so rare to find in Belfast - especially for set Christmas menus. A fantastic experience, thank you so much!
Lovely evening. Food was great thank you
Party of 6 for xmas dinner. All good meals except one which had 2 b sent back. The fish hadnt been deboned and was over cooked also missing the lobster bisque. The waitress was happy to replace it for the turkey and ham. Cheese board could have a bit more cheese on offer aswel
Food was lovely staff were great
Had a great evening for our Christmas party night, food and drink was great and worth every penny! Customer service could have been a little better when it came to letting us know the table needed to be cleared as we thought we still had a little time to finish our drinks but apart from that we enjoyed it and will be back next year!
The food was amazing best Ive tasted for a Xmas dinner. The staff was very nice and pleasant to everyone. The only thing was everyone was saying they were to hot in there. Plus they did like the so much noise from the music been played it would have been better if it was in the background other than that it was amazing thank you.
A thoroughly enjoyable Christmas dinner with very attentive staff.
Lovely food and staff thanks
