Lunch isn't for wimps: Corrs Corner, Ballyclare Road, Newtownabbey

By Louise Small

Corrs Corner is located seven miles outside Belfast. The hotel was opened over 90 years ago by the Corr family.

In 1993 it was bought over by Eugene McKeever and the family-run business has come on leaps and bounds.

The hotel's most recent renovations were in 2008 and the restaurant/bar area is a friendly, bright eating area.

The menu is vast and covers all diets, including gluten-free and coeliac diets.

I choose the chicken kebab in a warm pitta pocket with salad and garlic sautee potatoes.

I had heard great things about this and wanted to put it to the taste-bud test.

My dining partner opted for the burger with side salad and chips.

My meal arrived looking splendid with large chunks of bright red chicken smothered in sauce - looking good enough to eat, thankfully.

The chicken was succulent, the pitta and sides complemented the dish and I was very impressed as I chewed on it.

My partner munched her way through her burger with a big grin on her face, so it got the thumbs up.

I could not fault the service. The waitress was friendly, efficient and welcoming.

We washed the meal down with two Diet Cokes - so rock 'n roll.

The meal meal including drinks was £26. This was a hearty enjoyable dining experience, and there was no need for dinner later that night.
