Reviewed By Belfastguy - Belfast, United Kingdom

It’s been a while since I’ve sat in the restaurant but I’m basing my review on the two takeaways I’ve had in the last two weeks. The food was fantastic- especially the chicken pathia and the chicken was nice and tender. The garlic naan bread was delicious too.

Fantastic fry here - with great quality ingredients. Chowder and other dishes are also delicious. However once id a terrible salt n chili squid. it was far too salty and over cooked. however, ive been here dozens of times and everyone can have an off day!
Decor is modern, and bright, but acoustics can leave it sounding a bit loud at times.
Good range of drinks and traybake too.

Reviewed By Louise C

Had a lovely bite to eat last Saturday afternoon.
I got the steak Sandwich and my other half got the roast of the day. Both were absolutely outstanding. I would have liked a bit more steak to the steak Sandwich as it seemed to be the tiniest bit of meat on a burger but, but all the same it was lovely.
Only downside was the chewing gum that decided to get stuck down the back of my jeans and coat from some reprobate that decided sticking gum under the chair was sensible.

McKee's Country Store & Restaurant

Reviewed By irenajm - Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Pop in most weeks for some tasty bites, always have coffee and scones, up to now favourites have been cinnamon and rhubarb and ginger. This week we had lemon curd and coconut. What a treat, lovely tangy flavour of lemon meant was not too sweet.
A winning combination. Consistently great coffee is why we return. Wide choice of meats and fresh produce. The sirloin steaks have great flavour,actually got all Christmas meats here and was well pleased. Yes restaurant is busy, but usually not long to wait. Improved road access is welcome.

My wife and I visited here several times over the past few years and we have always enjoyed the experience. However we had the best meal this evening! My wife had salmon and I had the sirloin accompanied by a very good NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Very good!!
