The Old Thatch Inn
The Old Thatch Inn 116 Hillhead Rd
BT45 8ET
(028) 7946 8322 (T)

A thatched pub, on the road to Knockloughrim, that can be easily missed thanks to the bypass from Toomebridge to Magherafelt. This would be a pity as the food is excellent and the owners are friendly. Good food. And, yes, real thatch on the roof. Great in winter when the fire is roaring. The building has recently undergone renovations, with a new dining/conference area yet still leaving the old bar and lounge untouched.



Owen's Bar
Owen's Bar 50 Main St.
BT49 0EU
(028) 7772 2328 (T)

Old and interesting town centre bar with good parking outside. The bar inside is small but cosy. Several rooms lead off it and each has a character of its own. Staff and locals are friendly
