Only 10 mins from Comber and Killyleagh so why not drop in and enjoy our fabulous menu selection.

The largest sea lough in the British Isles, Strangford Lough is a unique and wonderful place and one of only three designated marine reserves in the United Kingdom. From our island location you can enjoy views , across the water to the basking seals and wading birds, including herons and white egrets on Hen Island, to the iconic Petrel lightship moored in the bay.
The restaurant is located next to the ruins of Sketrick Castle, one of the massive fortresses built in the Middle Ages to defend the area from seafaring invaders. A 20-minute walk on the marked path around the island affords uninterrupted views across the lough from Scrabo Tower to Kircubbin on a fine day.

A restaurant with a regional focus, using local suppliers from seafood to beef to showcasing local crafts and artwork.


Daft Eddy’s is owned and operated by brother and sister team Aaron Stronge and Tamara MacLeod and has been in the family for over 25 years, having previously been run by their mother and father.

Head chef Gordon Potts has presided over the kitchen for more than 20 years, leading a team who are passionate about local and seasonal produce.

The kitchen sources fish from Marty Johnson of Ardglass and Kilkeel, locally smoked Ballyhornan salmon, Hereford beef from Carnbrooke of Dromara and Givan’s pork to name a few.

The bar stocks local and speciality gins (Shortcross, Kilbroney), rums, whiskeys and ales (Farmageddon, Hilden Brewery).

If you are a local supplier, artist or craftsperson who thinks they may have something to offer in the restaurant or coffee shop, please feel free to get in touch with us.

We would be very happy to promote more of the amazing produce and skills available in our region.

We would be delighted to work with you to host your forthcoming event here for which we can create bespoke menus.
