The highlight of our visit to Galgorm was our experience in the River Room restaurant. A special thanks to your Chef for tailoring the menu to accommodate my dietary requirements and for taking the time to organise a personalised menu which was presented to me on arrival. The Restaurant Manager also deserves a mention for his professionalism, obviously aware of my intolerances, he answered my queries in relation to the menu without hesitation in a discreet manner. Our meal was delicious, really enjoyable, it was so refreshing to enjoy a meal without concern for allergens. Thank you to all concerned.

Simply exquisite. The service was perfect; friendly, professional and attentive without being overbearing. The black pudding beignets and crispy trout canapès were gorgeous and the veloute with pork cheek (the amuse-bouche) along with the sourdough bread and smoked rock salt, was divine. The pastry on the onion tartlet just melted in the mouth and my husband loved his cod starter- the flavours were so delicate but complimented each other perfectly. We both had the beef main course and again, it was cooked to perfection and every mouthful was a delight. I had the strawberries, pistachio and cream and my husband had the chocolate torte, coffee and macadamia nut dessert. They were both amazing. It was so nice to eat somewhere where the dessert was a crowning glory instead of an after thought. The chocolate torte was particularly fantastic. The petit fours were a perfect end to a perfect dining experience. The River Room more than deserves its 3 AA rosettes. By far the best meal I’ve eaten in a long time. I would put it on par with The Muddlers Club, James St South......and better than the meals we’ve had at Ox. We will definitely dine in The River Room next time we stay at Galgorm.

Well presented plates from pre starters with good taste, flavour difference, to the amuse bouche. As a 3 course meal quite filling and throughly enjoyable. Staff were excellent, with top marks to Chef and staff

Initially you feel the portions are small but you actually get a number of courses that you are positively full at the end of the meal. Just love the experience.

Food was ok. Scallops were cold. Halibut was dry. Rest of the food was lovely. Wine pairings could have been better especially the red wines were a bit bitter for my taste.

Food was a little disappointing. Had been built up to expect a very high standard of cuisine here. It was good but lacked flavour in some areas.

We booked dinner for 6.0pm as we prefer to eat earlier. The service was excellent, the food was beautifully cooked and every course was delicious. We will be returning shortly to experience it all again.
