About The Old Thatch Inn

The Old Thatch Inn is a family run business; it offers warmth and hospitality with its old stone walls and open fire. We are one of the oldest pub restaurants in Northern Ireland, established in 1832.

In our restaurant, you can enjoy a delicious meal in our traditional surroundings, which includes our very popular poets corner. We offer entertainment every night of the weekend, and traditional sessions monthly.

Our front bar is the true definition of an old traditional bar, from its surroundings to the open hatch door.

Our Function Room is a new addition to the building in 2012, but is has been designed to keep the traditional design of the original building. With this new addition, we can cater for larger parties and functions. From Christenings to weddings we cater for all.

"My husband and I were passing and decided to try this place out for lunch. The building itself is lovely and it's very cosy inside.  The waiting staff were lovely and the food was perfect. I had a vegetarian stir fry which was packed with fresh veg and my husband had the Baileys chicken special, he also really enjoyed his meal. If we are ever in the area again we will return to this lovely little place."
